This trail passes through State Trust Land and several active ranches. I am not sure of regulations regarding permits.
Due to the Cave Creek Complex Fire of 2005 much of the vegatation for a portion of this trail has been burnt away. During the monsoon season in Arizona this can cause flash flood conditions. Please be wary of weather reports when traveling in this area, there are multiple dry and running stream crossings.
This trail travels East from I-17 at the Table Mesa Rd exit through ranching territory (please close any gates as you pass through them) and ends at FR-24 just north of the Seven Springs Recreation Area. This run makes a perfect day trip with the kids for a beginning jeeper. There are several places to park streamside and picnic for lunch if you desire. Use caution as you cross the streambeds as the rocks can be slippery and offer resistance to traction.
