"A backpack from Organization Ridge Road to the Sabino Basin, 6.2 miles one way. This trail starts near the Palisades Ranger Station and runs down the ridgetops to end in the East Fork of Sabino Canyon. It initially passes through pine forest, then descends through oak woodlands, and ends up in arid grasslands sprinkled with ocotillos. The path is well beaten for its entire length; Mud Spring no longer offers a reliable water source along the way. The scenery features Pine Canyon along the middle part of the route, and near its end is a rocky bluff that commands a panoramic view of the Sabino Basin."
