Tramway Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This short trail in the West Clear Creek Wilderness is an enjoyable hike, and it provides access to spectacular West Clear Creek. The short but spectacular trail descends into the gorge of West Clear Creek, affording fine views both up and down the canyon. It follows the route of an old aerial tramway.The Kaibab limestone forms the rim. This fossil-rich layer was deposited in a shallow ocean and forms the edge of the Mogollon Rim in this area. Below the Kaibab limestone, the cross-bedded Coconino sandstone appears, with its layers of overlapping petrified sand dunes. The trail ends at the bottom of the canyon. One option is to hike cross-country upstream and climb out via the Maxwell Trail."
