Sheep Corral Trail #231 Professional Reviews and Guides
"This is the fastest, most direct hiking access into the remote central reaches of the lower Gila River. The lower reaches harbor a scenic valley in a rugged canyon with jagged volcanic formations. With two-thirds of the route outside the Wilderness boundary, there has been some degradation in places from roads that were constructed during a fire in the early 1990s. The trail crosses a road and then follows another road for 0.5 mile to the Wilderness boundary. Even so, Sheep Corral Canyon offers an enjoyable, fast, and straightforward entry into the remote, scenic heart of the lower Gila River canyon."
