“Fairly short but rocky and technical trail in the Tortolita Trail system accessed off Wild Burro Trail.”— Stephen Woodall
You'll travel up the Alamo Springs Trail for a short duration before taking a left heading a bit northeast. The trail is very straightforward and eventually crosses the wash and directly across the Wild Burro Trail before heading into the hillside again on the west side. It never approaches near the height of the Wild Mustang Trail, instead staying much lower down.
Eventually the trail connects back with the Wild Burro Trail. If you make a hard left, you'll head back up the canyon or if you continue straight at this junction, heading south, you'll head back towards the hotel and main junction, also towards the Upper Javelina Trail, which you'll reach before the main junction.
Overall this is a fun, shorter trail that doesn't get a lot of use. Just be prepared for a good amount of very technical terrain. There aren't any major climbs on this entire route, but a few are punchy ones that are made more challenging by the rocky terrain. The descents are also not too fast because of that rocky footing.
