A glance at the maps of the region gives an indication of what some of the earliest travelers and settlers thought of this area. Suffering Wash, Bloodsucker Wash, Rattlesnake Tank, and Hot Boy Mine tell their own tales. This trail runs through an arid region of southern Arizona, passing through some old, established ranches and grasslands, giving views of the Tortilla Mountains and the Santa Catalinas. Special Attractions: Less-traveled dirt road that accesses Summerhaven at the top of Mt. Lemmon; Historic site of American Flag. 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.
