Colonel Devin and Railroad Trails Professional Review and Guide
"The Colonel Devin Trail follows a historic route (now a utility route as well) up the face of the Mogollon Rim, along the banks of the East Verde River, crossing a couple of streams as it goes. The hike splits off near the top, along Railroad Trail, to visit an abandoned attempt to carve a train tunnel through the Rim. This popular, short hike is steep in places but still great for kids. The Colonel Devin portion is part of Arizona Trail, which runs across the state from Mexico to Utah. OUTSTANDING FEATURES: Springs, riparian area, abandoned and unfinished railroad tunnel."
