Webb Peak Trail #345

If you’re looking for a reasonably short trip that offers good views and takes you through some of the Safford District’s most beautiful forests, this trail provides all of the above. It starts at the Columbine public corrals across from the Columbine Visitor Information Station along the Swift Trail (AZ 366). Follow the Webb Peak Trail 1 mile to the Webb Peak Lookout. The tower is used only when fire danger warrants it, but the broad, far-reaching views are always on hand for you to enjoy. Just before you reach the tower you’ll find a trail that leads to the right. This is the part of Webb Peak Trail that leads 1.7 miles to the Ash Creek Trail #307. It is 0.5 mile from this junction on the Ash Creek Trail to the Columbine public corrals.
