Horton Springs / Mogollon Rim
Another trail you could hike a lifetime and never get tired of its amazing beauty. In the warm months its paradise with water you can drink directly from the mouth of the spring. This is the home of the old famous western author Zane Grey. You will find “Old Douglas Fir Trees” that are like going home to your mother, with a big hug.
Its 3.5 miles in and 3.5 out. Over the years, their have become two trails that reach the same destination. We will follow the less traveled one, and the more travel one down. If you feel the trail is too challenging, we can always hook up to the more traveled trail.
Like wet beaver creek you will have your chance to eat wild black berries. We will practice yoga at the mouth of the spring. If the hike seems too much, we have numbers of beautiful places to practice yoga by beautiful waterfalls.
As usual your guide will meet you at the trail head wearing a backpack with yoga mats attached and holding an ASU Umbrella.

Turn left here and take the road about 0.5 miles until you reach the Horton Picnic area. Park in the signed parking area if you can, otherwise park in one of the clearings along side the road.
