Barbershop Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This is a fine walk on an historic trail through beautiful forest near the Mogollon Rim. The Barbershop Trail is in a multiple use area and is not a wilderness trail, but the trail is interesting because of its historical significance and the beauty of the forest of pine, fir, and aspen.

About 0.7 mile of the trail follows dirt roads, and it crosses several other roads, generally on the broad ridgetops, where it is importantto follow the blazed route carefully. The trail is indistinct and can easily be missed where it leaves the roads. The trail crosses several shallow canyons and is obvious in these sections; old trail construction is plainly visible. It is not shown on the topographic map."

This was done as part of the Historic Cabin Loop. There are some significant ups and downs that really add to the hike. Water was not a problem in July with the sources listed. Keep your eyes peeled for the blazes with all the road crossings. Hiking after dark would be difficult on this section because of the road crossings and the distance between blazes. This is a beautiful trail and the elevation really kept the temps down.
