This is a steep trail with some scenic views, especially from the summit of Lone Mountain.

Runner Notes

I like to add this to running the Pass Mountain Trail onto the Maricopa Trail - Pass Mountain Connector from the Wind Cave Trail trailhead as an out and back. It makes for a nice view halfway through and the downhill is nice. Be careful, though, there is a lot of loose gravel on the trail.

Description

This is a scenic trail that does not seem to get much traffic, especially in the summer. There is not a lot of opportunity to find shade, so be sure to carry water and protection from the sun.

This trail has no signage unless you count the sign at the summit. The trail is pretty well established, but when it forks early on, stay to the left or you'll head onto the Phon D Sutton Trail, which is a lot longer adventure.

There is limited parking at the trailhead, which is shared with horse trailers and motorized off-road adventurers who head out some of the other trails. You head up the gravel "road" to get started and then head left when it branches and becomes too narrow for vehicles.

There are some great views along the trail, but watch for loose gravel.
