"This short trail follows alongside Sunnyside Canyon, traveling on a roughly graded dirt road. The trail gradually climbs, giving excellent views over the Huachuca Mountains. At a T-intersection, the trail makes the loop around to the Sunnyside town site. Special Attractions: Old border crossing town of Lochiel; Washington Camp and Duquesne ghost towns; Montezuma Pass and the Coronado National Monument; Sweeping views of mountains and grasslands in the United States and Mexico. 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."
