Sometimes the map shows a simple road that seems to exist only to connect one road to another. Looking closer, you see the symbol of a powerline snaking along close to the road. FR 124H looks that way on a map, but the drive is far more rewarding than the map might show. Yes, the trail snakes back and forth, crossing the wide powerline cut. But the clearing reveals miles of the complex rolling nature of the Mogollon Rim, a unique topography mostly hidden by the dense forests of Pondersoda pines. The trail winds through those stately tall pines as well, even an area of shady fir and spruce trees, making you momentarily forget the powerline until a sharp curve bursts you into the open again. The multitude of curves and dips in the trail are sufficiently entertaining. Nearing the southern end of the trail, a hairpin turn begins a steep rocky climb out of small brushy drainage. Soon you intersect with Mahan Ranch, barely remembering that you left Sawmill Springs just a while back. Sometimes the maps don't show everything, and a drive along a simple connector beside a powerline becomes a fun and scenic adventure.
