“A challenging trail in either direction with great views of Thumb Butte.”
— Jeff Combs
Hokaygon Trail #341 traverses the rolling terrain southeast of Granite Mountain. The trail stays primarily in pinyon-juniper woodland and is carved out from the dense understory of classic chaparral shrubs such as scrub oak, apache plume, and mountain mahogany. This is excellent habitat for many species of southwestern birds, especially towhees and jays. Both ends of this trail tie into the #347 Willow Trail.
When running from the Katahn Trailhead, be ready for some loose climbing with tight switchbacks, then a gentle up and down to the intersection with #347 Willow Trail. This trail is also a favorite of the equestrians, so be sure to watch out for them.
