This trail has a little bit of everything! As the trail starts to gain elevation, it traverses across the face of a ridgeline, with steep sides. It enables wonderful views to the east over Cherry Creek, and beyond to the Apache Tribal Lands. The drive up the mountain face is not difficult, but it can raise the hairs on the back of your neck. The sides are steep and impressive, and it is surprising to see this terrain suddenly. The trail continues up onto the ridgeline and is really fun to drive. This next section is more hard-pack earth (muddy in the rainy season) and open to the sky. It has a bit of an Overlanding feel to it, and it leaves you wanting more. There are several trails that lead off to beautiful scenic views and ancient ruins to satisfy your adventure. Off in the distance, you can see the Mogillan Rim and you can anticipate what the hiking trails will be at the end of the road. It is beautiful to see. In the last section, the vegetation consists mainly of scrub oak, sagebrush, and yucca. It's a high desert type of landscape. During the spring, the landscape is alive with plant growth, and bees are buzzing everywhere. It's a great time to run the trail!
