A 10 mile long trail between Cave Creek TH and Spur Cross TH.

Description

I have only done a short section in the northeast that forms a part of the Skunk Tank Trail 246 - Cave Creek Trail #4 loop.

The Trail begins at an intersection with the Cave Creek Trail #4, about 0.8 miles from the Cave Creek Trailhead on Seven Springs Road. It heads south, crosses Cave Creek, and then heads uphill to a junction with the beginning of Skunk Tank Trail 246, in about 0.3 miles.
