Gila Forks Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This route is amazingly diverse for such a short, easy hike. Along the way the views are high and wide; the hot springs pleasant; and the canyon rock walls and formations colorful. The start of the hike opens to a spectacular panorama down the Gila River valley. The otherwise good trail becomes rocky as it drops steeply through pinyon-juniper woodlands lined with cholla cactus."
