Chavez Draw Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Jacks Canyon is one of a number of canyons that cuts deep paths across the Mogollon Plateau. Chavez Draw drains into Jacks Canyon, and this trail follows the path of much of Chavez Draw. The trail leaves Arizona 87 a few miles south of the north boundary of the Coconino National Forest and travels as a rough formed trail that quickly descends into the scenic and rugged Jacks Canyon. It leaves the canyon, traveling alongside Chavez Draw and crossing it often in the next few miles. Special Attractions: Scenic Jacks Canyon; Moderate trail providing access to Long, Soldier, and Soldier Annex Lakes. High-clearance 4WDs are preferred, but any high-clearance vehicle is acceptable. Expect a rough road surface; mud and sand are possible but will be easily passable. You may encounter rocks up to 6 inches in diameter, a loose road surface, and shelf roads, though these will be wide enough for passing or will have adequate pull-offs."
