Trail Overview

This moderate shelf road leads from the valley below near Connor and heads up into the Sapphire Mountains. The beginning is a shelf road with a steep dropoff with tight turns, loose rocky switchbacks, and ever-changing outstanding views of the valley as you make your ascent. There are a few pullouts for camping here and there; however, nothing epic. Once at the "top," the trail is primarily deep pot craters, "potholes" with the occasional large puddle. As the trees break, you get ridiculous views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. This is an excellent way to access the network of trails up here. One bar of Verizon LTE cell service.
