Overview

Check with the Coconino Ranger Station for current campfire restrictions.

Description

This trail does not offer any vista or views. To access the trail, park at the intersection of Forest Service road 538G and 538E. Run down 538E until you reach the trailhead of Hog Hill and Dorsey Spring Trails. Hog Hill is to the left. Run down the wide path for about 1 mile. After this point, the trail gets very difficult to follow. It is important to download this route to follow or, as I did, use Google Map terrain or the Trail Run Project mobile app. The Hog Hill Trail can be seen and marked on Google. I took this trail from Kelsey Spring Trail and up to the trailhead as part of a loop run.

Once past this difficult section through open terrain and downed trees, you'll re-enter the forest continuing downhill. At the end of the trail is the Winter Cabin Trail and the Kelsey Spring Trail. Run down a little further, and you'll reach a primitive cabin. It makes for good shelter but doesn't look great for winter use.
