Horton Springs Loop Professional Review and Guide
"This popular loop travels up the Mogollon Rim to the always gushing Horton Springs, using Highline Trail 31 to connect Derrick Trail 33 and Horton Creek Trail 285. The Rim's transition forest and Horton Creek's riparian channel support a wide variety of flora and fauna, from agave cacti to ponderosa pine and butterflies to mule deer. If you have young children or smaller dogs,you may want to just take the easiest portion of the route out and back along Horton Creek Trail. Both trails are popular with equestrians, and trail etiquette suggests that hikers yield to horses. OUTSTANDING FEATURES: Rim vistas, gushing spring, riparian meadows, wildlife."
