Trail Overview

This is a side trip off Motoqua Road that will take you near the base of Square Top Mountain. In 1983 a B-52 missed clearing the top by 250'. Those that have been to the top say the area looks like someone took a B-52 and put it in a blender and then scattered the results. This is a very rocky trail and if all you want to do is see the mountain from afar, then go to where the rocks start and turn around. It doesn't get any better. There is an interesting wildlife water catchment system and another, unknown, item up the trail.


This trail is rated a 2 but the trail is very rocky with sharp rocks. The best description of the trail is annoyingly rocky. There are some beautiful views of the valley upon the return but those can be had with much less trouble.
