Moderate trail miles along singletrack and doubletrack make for easy travel through rolling desert terrain. The trail eventually climbs into the foothills of the Tortilla Mountains before descending toward the Gila River.
A combination of carsonite signs and rock cairns marks the trail, but cattle trails crossing the passage sometimes obscure the route. Although this passage crosses Arizona State Land, no permit is required to travel on the trail or camp within the 15-foot Arizona National Scenic Trail (AZT) corridor.
