This short trail runs between Apache Maid Fire Lookout Trail and FR 229. The trail, which is rough and rutted in places, describes a wide loop around Apache Maid Mountain. Initially, it runs over the open plateau, falling off gradually toward Wet Beaver Creek and Hog Hill. After the intersection with FR 9243H, the trail dips gradually into Mullican Canyon, a narrow, fairly shallow canyon that is rimmed with the black lava rocks that abound in this region. The trail standard gradually improves until it joins the graded road that completes the loop to FR 229. Special Attractions: Rugged and scenic Mullican Canyon; Views of Apache Maid Mountain. High-clearance 4WDs are preferred, but any high-clearance vehicle is acceptable. Expect a rough road surface; mud and sand are possible but will be easily passable. You may encounter rocks up to 6 inches in diameter, a loose road surface, and shelf roads, though these will be wide enough for passing or will have adequate pull-offs.
