Trail Overview

Texas Gulch starts as a wide, dirt road, gently rolling through the large power line towers. Quickly though, it becomes a rugged, single-lane two-track with erosion and washouts peppering its path. Be thankful for the 2 bars of LTE on this trail, because one wrong move may have you calling for help, as some of the ruts are quite deep. Hill climbs with loose rocks, off-camber erosion ruts, and sneaky rocks are some of what you'll encounter on this trail. Evidence of coyotes and deer, as well as cattle grazing, are the animals along the trail. The views are quite nice, with vistas of Prescott Valley below. There are multiple campsites along the trail, with wide, level spots available.
