Mogollon - Rain Creek Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This route is the best and most interesting shuttle hike in this isolated southwestern corner of the Wilderness. The mountain vistas are spectacular, the terrain is challenging, and the solitude is complete.

This adventurous and highly rewarding sweep across the west-central end of the Gila Wilderness touches, and offers views beyond of, the incredibly rugged south-draining canyons of the Mogollon Mountains. The one- way shuttle driving distance between trailheads is 12 miles, less than the length of the hike!"
