Margie’s Peak Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The trail entrance is easier to spot when traveling from north to south, as it turns east from the highway and immediately swings south, alongside the road to dip down and cross through a wash. It then turns east again and passes through a gate alongside a couple corrals and Hedges Well. Special Attractions: Part of the historic Butterfield Stage Route; Access to the North Maricopa Mountains Wilderness Area; Rugged Sonoran desert scenery. High-clearance vehicles are preferred, but not necessary.

This trail is dirt roads, but may have rocks, grades, water crossings, or ruts that make clearance a concern in a normal passenger vehicle. The trail is fairly wide, so that passing is possible at almost any point along the trail. Mud is not a concern under normal weather conditions."

This trail is a walk in the park. It's clearly marked, it's easy going, the roughest part I think is the gravel road that ends at the highway.
