"A day hike along Johns Canyon Ridge, 6.8 miles one way. This little-used trail makes a nice day trip in the northern end of the Pinaleño Mountains. Parties that have two vehicles can leave one at the mouth of Johns Canyon and drive the other one to the top of the grade, thus avoiding uphill hiking entirely. Begin on the Blue Jay Ridge Trail, a two-rut jeep trail departing from FR 286 near the summit of West Peak. This jeep track passes immediately through a cut in the hillside, whereupon a path marked by cairns drops downslope to the right. This is the Johns Canyon Trail; it switchbacks down the slope, passing through country that was heavily burned in 1973."
