This pleasant trail winds along the western side of the Patagonia Mountains and offers beautiful views of the mountains as well as good backcountry camping opportunities. Both ends of the trail cross private land; access is granted under the Sportsman Landowners respect program. Please stay on the trail and leave gates as you find them. Continued access to the trail depends on responsible trail behavior. Special Attractions: Extremely scenic Temporal Gulch; Prolific bird life; Trail travels along a section of the Arizona Trail; Views over Temporal Gulch, the Patagonia Mountains, and Mt. Wrightson. High-clearance 4WDs are preferred, but any high-clearance vehicle is acceptable. Expect a rough road surface; mud and sand are possible but will be easily passable. You may encounter rocks up to 6 inches in diameter, a loose road surface, and shelf roads, though these will be wide enough for passing or will have adequate pull-offs.
