This scenic loop in the Mazatzal Mountains combines smooth ridge running with an enjoyable section along the West Fork of Sycamore Creek. The creek flows intermittently through groves of Arizona sycamore, and the pools along the creek are tempting on a hot day. It's located 51 mils northeast of Mesa. Tread: 5.1 miles maintained dirt road; 5.5 miles doubletrack.
