Kinder Crossing Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Another historic trail providing access to East Clear Creek. The Kinder Crossing Trail descends into East Clear Creek by following the ridge to the east, reaching the creek at the confluence of East Clear Creek and Yeager Canyon. There is a large and very inviting swimming hole at the confluence. After cooling off it is fun to explore the canyon, both up and down stream.

The hikes are presented in an easy-to-read format with at-a-glance information at the start. Each hike description contains the following information: Hike number and name: The hike number is also shown on the Overview Map, to help you visualize the general location of the hike. I’ve used the official, or at least the commonly accepted, name for a trail or hike wherever possible. Hikes that use several trails are usually named for the main trail."

"This is a short, historic trail providing access to East Clear Creek. You can explore up- or down-stream from the foot of the trail. East Clear Creek runs year-round, and the deep, clear pools are a delight in the hot days of summer. The Kinder Crossing Trail descends into East Clear Creek by following the ridge to the east, reaching the creek at the confluence of East Clear Creek and Yeager Canyon.

There is a large and very inviting swimming hole at the confluence. After cooling off, it’s fun to explore the canyon, in either direction. This trail is one of several historical trails that cross East Clear Creek and other canyons on the forested Mogollon Plateau north of the Mogollon Rim."
