Before starting, one must be prepared and follow safety precautions.   Always take plenty of water and wear a wide brim  hat and sunscreen.  Hiking boots or all terrain walking shoes with good traction are necessary.  Take a backpack with a map, toilet paper, plastic bag, knife, food, flashlight and first aid kit.  Always get a weather report.  Trails can be dangerous when wet, reducing footing and increasing the chances of injury.  All trails traverse dried creek beds which can become rapidly swollen during rainstorms.

Types of Trails:  Many portions of the trails can be seen on satellite photographs on Google Maps

  • Easy: Little change in elevation. Still many loose rocks with stepping stones used intermittently to traverse ridges and gullies.

  • Moderate: Significant change in elevation. Many stepping stones used to go up in elevation. The hiker can traverse the trail standing up.

  • Strenuous: Huge change in elevation. Many stepping stones and sections of near vertical climbing. The hiker has to use all fours to traverse these sections.

There are many other fine trails to take.  However, some of the best have trailheads which can only be reached (as of January 2012) by dirt roads which require vehicles with a high clearance and preferably four- wheel drive.   These access roads include:

  • Looking West - Huckaby Parking LotFR 152 leading to Vultee Arch Trail and Secret Canyon Trail.

  • Schnebly Hill Road leading to Munds Mountain Trail, Munds Wagon Trail and Schnebly Hill Vista.
