Table Mesa 9952 connects Table Mesa Road to 9954 and forms the first half of a route locally referred to as "Crapshoot". It would be an easy trail but for two obstacles that merit a difficult rating.
Running the trail north to south, the first obstacle is a steep, uneven loose dirt climb. The second obstacle is a steep, loose rock descent with a potentially belly-dragging drop-off in the middle part of the hill. Between the two, steady throttle and steady braking are highly useful.
While anytime is a good time for photography along this route, springtime can be an especially great opportunity to capture iconic Arizona desert photography with the post-monsoon season flower bloom.
