Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"There is year-round vehicular access to this lower-elevation trailhead to Mogollon Creek when high-country routes are still snowbound. The payoff includes panoramic views of the Mogollon Range along with exploration of the canyon box of Buds Hole.

This route penetrates the southwest corner of the lofty Mogollon Range with a chance to explore off-trail to the narrow box of Buds Hole on lower Mogollon Creek."
