Trail Overview

This route begins from FS 4090 C and dead ends at the Burro Mountain Homestead Gate 7. That gate is locked. The Alligator Juniper that line the road is hundreds and hundreds of years old. These massive trees only grow in northern Mexico and the Southwestern US. The Alligator Juniper also called the Checkerbox Juniper, for obvious reasons when you see the bark, grows at an absurdly slow rate of only half an inch per decade.

Difficulty

Narrow tree hazards and erosion are the challenges of this route.

History

An Alligator Juniper marked with a plaque as historical and don't disturb or cut is on the south side of the route.
