Trail Information


The Historic Pinal Cemetery serviced both the towns of Pinal and Superior from the years 1876 to 1892. The town of Superior continued using the cemetery until December of 1916. It is protected by the Archaeological Resources Protection Act of 1979 so please do not disturb anything you see. You can find more information [here](http://www.historicalmarkerproject.com/markers/HM1DW5_historic-pinal-cemetery_Superior-AZ.html). Those who are interested in old west history and Wyatt Earp will find this cemetery particularly interesting as it is the final resting place of Wyatt Earp's wife; Celia Blaylock or, Mattie Earp. You may remember the Hollywood version of their lives in the 1993 movie, Tombstone.

Was in the area and, being a big Wyatt Earp history buff, wanted to visit Mattie's grave. Easy drive, lots of dispersed camping available. The trail was in decent condition. with ruts. Maybe a 2 now.

Arizona National Forests and State Lands are back open for travel. There are still some very important fire restrictions in place. These restrictions can often change by specific areas.

Temporary Closure
Visited: 06/25/2021

Tonto National Forest officials will close the state’s largest national forest due to ongoing extreme fire danger beginning at 8 a.m. on Friday, June 25. The forest is implementing this forest closure as a precaution to protect the health and safety of the public, employees and firefighters by reducing the risk of human-caused fires. No one is allowed in the closure area, including Forest Service personnel, unless they are responding to a wildfire or other emergency or patrolling to ensure enforcement of the closure. The order shall remain in effect until July 31, 2021 or until rescinded, whichever occurs first. Residents or businesses using roads in the restricted area to the extent necessary to access their private property are exempt.

Easy trail, nothing much to see other than the Cemetery. There are a lot of other trails that lead off of this one.
