Barfoot Park Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This short trail is part of a through route that connects Barfoot Park to Pine Canyon Trail near the Methodist Camp lower down in Pine Canyon. However, Pine Creek heavily washed out a few years ago and a short section is considered impassable to most vehicles, most unmodified 4WDs included. In the 1870s and 1880s, rustling cattle from Mexico for resale in Arizona was a common activity. Rustler Park was a favorite stopover point for the rustlers, who had time to re-brand, rest up, and feed the cattle on the park’s higher-altitude green pastures.

Special Attractions: Easy trail traveling through many life zones, ultimately climbing to 9,531 feet; Cool summer camping opportunities; Summer wildflower viewing; Trout fishing in Riggs Flat Lake. High-clearance 4WDs are recommended, though most stock SUVs are acceptable. Expect a rough road surface with rocks larger than 6 inches, but there will be a reasonable driving line available. Patches of mud are possible but can be readily negotiated; sand may be deep and require lower tire pressures. There may be stream crossings up to 12 inches deep, substantial sections of single-lane shelf road, moderate grades, and sections of moderately loose road surface."

This trail is no longer accessible. Just past the campground at Barfoot Park the Forrest Service has closed the route. The apparent reason is because of the damage caused by the Horseshoe Fire in 2011. Probably too many downed trees and wash-outs.
