Marion Spring Hike Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This good day hike in the southeast corner of the Mazatzal Wilderness can be combined with the Squaw Flat hike to make a much longer day hike or overnight backpack trip. The trail starts from the Cross F Trailhead, one of the few Mazatzal Mountains trailheads that can be reached from a paved road.

The Squaw Flat Trail starts on the west side of the highway and can be difficult to locate. It crosses under the power line, then heads west up an unnamed tributary of Sycamore Creek. It follows this tributary as it turns north and enters a canyon. The trail turns northwest and climbs through a low saddle to meet an old jeep trail, which it follows to the northwest along a ridge. At the point where the Squaw Flat Trail turns northeast and starts to traverse the slopes south of Potato Patch, turn left and hike the short spur northwest to Marion Spring, our goal for this hike."
