Highlight: FR 139G
FR 139G is a delightful little two-track through the tall pines of the vast Coconino National Forest. A short hike along a side trail brings you to picturesque Aspen Spring and an old homestead. A stone chimney remains from the original cabin. The log horse barn is leaning but still standing after all this time. Aspen Spring flows gently from under a massive rock outcrop, its pure water joining the little creek in Houston Draw. The site was used back in the day by the Houston brothers who summered their cattle in the lush canyons of the high country above the Mogollon Rim. Further along the trail are superb campsites beckoning you to spend some time listening to the wind sing in the tops of the towering pines. Swinging a hammock between two pines and listening to the wind song is proven to make a person forget the rest of the world below, at least for a bit.
