Round the Mountain Trail #302 Professional Reviews and Guides
"A backpack along the northeast slope of the Pinaleño Mountains. This trail offers one of the longer backpacking routes in southern Arizona, traversing the high and wild country beneath the crest of the Pinaleño Mountains. The trail is well-maintained and fairly easy to follow, but is physically challenging because it continually climbs up and down a series of high passes. The trail zigzags toward the canyon floor, and a scattering of pines and Douglas firs frames vistas of the Gila Valley and the Blue Mountains that rise beyond it. Agaves and hedgehog cacti grow from chinks in the rock, and juniper trees thrust their twisted limbs toward the desert sky."
