Trail Overview

North Waterman Mountain Trail is a narrow overgrown trail that passes through Ironwood National Monument BLM land and Arizona State Trust Land 5 miles south to West Avra Valley Road. This trail goes through many washes as it meanders through the dense saguaro and cholla valley. Expect pinstripes if you're in a full-size truck, most of this trail is overgrown in the middle until passing Gasline road then it starts to open up again.

We entered the trail from West Silverbell road. The trail is indeed open. In our prior trail report we stated the road was temporarily closed (when we tried to enter from Ava Valley road) because of a no trespassing sign. Turns out that was incorrect. The no trespassing sign is probably because the land is either with the bureau of Land Management or state trust land. We do have a permit so we are able to use this trail and we were able to use it this morning. there is no signs stating no trespassing when entering from West Silverbell road. The scenery and the trail were great, no major obstacles. We drove through a few very small washes and saw some various desert critters. All in all a great morning!

The entrance to this trail from Avra Valley road says this is private property so we did not actually drive on the trail but turned around and left. Does anyone have any information as to whether or not his trail can actually be used?
