A day hike to an overlook above Rucker Canyon. This trail makes an outstanding day hike. The bottomland forests along the lower part of the trail make excellent bird and deer habitat, and the upper segment of the trail offers spectacular views of multicolored rock formations flanking upper Rucker Canyon. There may be water in the wash of Rucker Canyon seasonally, but there are no springs along the route. The trail begins as an old two-rut road that follows Rucker Creek eastward through a bottomland dominated by evergreen oaks and ponderosa pines. The oaks soon fall away, and Apache pines replace the ponderosas as the dominant overstory trees. Arizona cypress, a member of the cedar family, grows along the stream banks where its roots can tap underground water sources. This graceful tree looks like a spruce, but has bark that is ribbed in long smooth strips. A band of grayish bedrock soon bars the valley. The creek has carved aswirling channel through the stone.
