This trail passes by two popular fishing spots within the Kaibab National Forest. From the start of the trail on CR 73 to White Horse Lake, the trail is an easy 1-rated gravel road. There are many side trails leading off from this road, including the start of Sycamore Point Trail. White Horse Lake is set in a shallow dish among ponderosa pines. Along the lake shore, there is a developed campground operated by the forest service. Near the lake, camping is restricted to these developed sites, but there are many options for backcountry camping nearby. There is a boat launch and the lake is stocked with trout, bluegill, and catfish. Special Attractions: Fishing and camping at White Horse Lake and fishing at J. D. Dam Lake; J. D. cabins and grave; Long trail traveling through the Kaibab National Forest. High-clearance vehicles are preferred, but not necessary. This trail is dirt roads, but may have rocks, grades, water crossings, or ruts that make clearance a concern in a normal passenger vehicle. The trail is fairly wide, so that passing is possible at almost any point along the trail. Mud is not a concern under normal weather conditions.
