Horseshoe Pass Professional Review and Guide
"This trail makes a fantastic day trip from the South Fork Cave Creek Picnic Area, offering outstanding views of the stone towers above the Cave Creek basin. The trail begins in rich bottomland forest below soaring towers of multicolored rhyolite. Mountain trees such as Chihuahua and ponderosa pines and evergreen oaks mix with water-loving trees such as cypresses and sycamores. As the path ascends the valley, bigtooth maples become prevalent. A scattering of yuccas reminds the traveler that the Chiricahuas are a desert range. The trail frequently crosses the streamcourse as the water splashes through stony runs and quiet pools."
