Pigeon Spring Loop Professional Review and Guide

"Loop hike on the north slopes of Four Peaks that passes through the remains of a large stand of ponderosa pine burned in the 60,000-acre Lone Fire in 1996. Although most of the big trees are gone, many other plants are making a comeback."

"This hike on the north slopes of Four Peaks passes through the remains of a large stand of ponderosa pine burned in the 60,000-acre Lone Fire in 1996. Although most of the big trees are gone, many other plants are making a comeback. There are two seasonal springs along this route. surface: Dirt and rocks.

This is an interesting hike on a segment of the Arizona Trail through the heart of the Lone Fire burn. Watch out for unstable burned trees, which can fall at any time. Follow the trail, an old road, downhill 0.1 mile to Pigeon Spring, a masonry trough. Here the trail turns south and climbs over a saddle strewn with granite boulders. Thanks to the fire, there’s a great view of Four Peaks from this minor pass."
