Overview

Italian Trap Road #37 leads to a large cattle tank that at one time provided a third access route to Chiva Falls from the east down the Tanque Verde Creek. The Tanque Verde Creek portion of this access has long been closed off, but you can still head over to FR# 4417 (The Chiva Falls Middle Access Way) via a short road: FR# 4424 Italian Trap To Chiva Falls Middle access connector which heads out over from the intersection near Italian Trap Tank. The reward for this trail is at the end, where the Arizona Trail crosses the creek and you can explore an old corral, well, and an abandoned homestead. There are very nice mesquite-shaded camp spots back at the end of the trail that offers solitude from the hustle and bustle that is Redington Pass.
