Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A long day hike or overnight trip to a remote area of the Gila Wilderness on the Gila River.

The Sheep Corral Canyon Trail offers a relatively easy route to the remote lower Gila River canyon. With a four- wheel- drive vehicle and some perseverance, this hike can be shortened significantly as is explained below. It’s almost all downhill on the way out, so save some energy for the long climb back to the trailhead."
