This loop, part of the extensive White Mountain Trail System in the forest surrounding the towns of Show Low and Pinetop-Lakeside, takes you over the broad summit of Blue Ridge Mountain and back along Thompson and Billy Creeks. Go north, across the road, on the Blue Ridge Mountain Trail, whichBlue Ridge Mountain turns northeast and ascends the gentle slopes of Blue Ridge Mountain through mixed pinyon-juniper and ponderosa pine. Marked by blue diamonds nailed to the trees, the trail is easy to follow as it wanders up the hill for 0.6 mile to the junction with the Ice Cave Trail. Stay right on the Blue Ridge Mountain Trail, which reaches the broad summit area in another 1.5 miles. On the east slopes of the mountain, the trail follows an old road and eventually turns southeast to reach Trailhead 2.
