This car-shuttle hike follows a section of High line Trail from Washington Park to Camp Geronimo along the western third of the Mogollon Rim escarpment. From Washington Park, the hike goes west over the foothills and along the slope of the Rim, hovering at around the 6,100-foot line and crossing several creeks and springs as it goes. It also crosses the burned remains of the 1990 Dude Fire before finally heading south and downhill toward the Geronimo trailhead. This segment of the Highline is also part of Arizona Trail, which runs across the state from Mexico to Utah. OUTSTANDING FEATURES: Various vegetation zones, springs and creeks, ghost forests, panoramic views.
