Fun trail with a couple of optional spots that are more technical/harder. Looking forward to running this one again!

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.

Due to extremely high fire danger, exceptional drought conditions, resource availability, and increased fire activity, the Department of Forestry and Fire Management and the Arizona State Land Department will implement closures to State Trust Land throughout Arizona. These closures are also in conjunction with our USFS partners. As of 8am on June 25, 2021, closures will be implemented on state-owned and managed lands in all 15 counties. All state-owned and managed lands are closed to entry for recreational purposes, including hunting, camping, and off-road vehicle use. Target shooting and fireworks are prohibited year-round.

So my wife and I actually took the Mineral Road Trail from the 60 down to this trails eastern end. We intended on taking it to the 79 but immediately hit a large washout at the trail entrance where Mineral Mountain Road/Trail and this trail meet. It looked very similar to the conditions you'd expect at Cleghorn with severe off camber and two/three wheeling, locker definitely needed. We had to back down the trail and go back the way we came.
