As the early settlers crossed this desolate landscape, they marked their way, leaving behind a trail marker for others to follow. Old Spanish Trail is the original route used by these weary travelers. This small section follows that original trail before it treks through Cottonwood Wash. The trail is loose and soft dirt but was once a graded road in areas. BE CAUTIOUS because there are deadly blind washouts. One crossing over a washout is not advised. Bypassing around the crumbling "bridge" will prevent a collapse. Camping is in the wide open on the dirt, where it can be very windy.
