Reservation Ranch runs southwestward from Highway 273 to the Fort Apache Indian Reservation border. A rest area with a vault toilet sits near the trailhead. The graded trail Initially passes on the north side of a vast, wide-open alpine meadow with numerous dispersed campsites nestled on the edge of the pine forest. The road winds down into a small valley and crosses Thompson Creek, a favorite with anglers trying to hook a wily trout. An easy and beautiful hiking trail meanders along the creek. The road climbs into the forest before officially ending at the reservation border. Reservation Lake and Campground is just a mile ahead. All activities on tribal land require a permit.
