Branching away from the plentiful Superstition trails to the north, this trail heads south from Peralta Road and leads deep into desert cattle ranching territory. Most of this trail is packed dirt and rock. Multiple areas of washouts, small ledge drop-offs, and wash crossings tip the rating to a low-end moderate. Portions of this trail run through active cattle ranching land. Please respect the ranchers and leave cattle gates as found or follow the gate signs where posted.

Several camping locations are on the north end, closest to Peralta Road. These are larger locations with fire rings and can accommodate multiple rigs. There are no camping locations once south of the red cattle gate.

The trail ends on the south, intersecting the old and abandoned US 80 roadbed. Heading east, you will find a washed-out bridge from days gone by, and it will also take you back to pavement.

This trail traverses Arizona State Trust Land. A recreational permit is required.
