Ben Avery to Indian Spring Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Ben Avery Trail, named for a noted Arizona outdoor enthusiast and writer, leads through dramatically hued volcanic basalt hills rising up from the bajadas of the rugged Eagletail Mountains.

There are grace notes here, however. Natural arches and rock spires can be viewed from the trail, and the sweet scents of the fall- and spring-blooming, bitter condalia trees waft over the desert."
