The northeastern range of the Mazatzal Mountains makes up a remote and little-traveled wilderness area that offers outstanding day- and backpacking trips with high scenic value. Your dog will especially love being at heel for this trail, with its frequent shady washes and ephemeral streams. (Due to recent fires, some shade is lost, so plan to go during cooler times of day and heed the season suggestion.) Take care to pack in water for this hike, since water sources are not reliable except in rainy seasons.
