More Yaeger Canyon Loop Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This is an enjoyable loop hike on Mingus Mountain, with views of Prescott Valley. The hike starts on the Little Yaeger Canyon Trail, which begins from the southeast side of the parking area. Several switchbacks lead through pinyon-juniper forest to the top of a gentle ridge, where ponderosa pine begin to take over. The trail climbs more gradually through a small saddle and meets the Allen Spring Road from the trailhead. Turn left and walk down the road 0.2 mile to the Yaeger Cabin Trail (Forest Trail 111) and turn left. Still in pine and oak forest, the Yaeger Cabin Trail drops slightly as it traverses a side canyon of Little Yaeger Canyon and then begins to work its way up the head of the canyon. Sometimes there is water in the bed of the canyon near its head. The trail comes out onto a pine flat on the southwest ridge of Mingus Mountain."
