Not a lot to say about this trail. It's a main artery connecting you to larger things. We popped off at the bridge and took some photos along the way. This was a smaller leg on a much longer trip up the Northern Arizona Traverse. It's worth noting that there is a new, TWO YEAR area closure around the bridge to help stave off the inconsiderate from trashing our public lands and allowing the area to recover from abuse. It relates to Forest Roads 9004W and 9004M. You can still pass through via CR70. Details can be found here:

Trail is open and trail conditions were great. Started at the Verde River and traveled north. Nice trial be it was had been very dry in the area. No water running in any of the creeks except the Verde River.
