Fracus Canyon, named for the winding canyon on its northern end, is a major north/south arterial road in the Kaibab National Forest. The northern portion of the trail was burned in the 2020 Mangum Wildfire. The blackened trunks of massive Ponderosa pines stand stark against the white backdrop of the canyon walls. The burned section gives way to a beautiful pine forest with campsites scattered along the central portion of the trail and its many spurs. The road intersects with West Side Ryan, close to Highway 67 and the DeMotte Campground.
