North Granite Trail #671

  

A remnant of a historic stagecoach road, North Granite Trail #671 is relatively level, though there are some places where time and water have carved deep gullies and troughs into the trail. There are wonderful views of Baby Granite Mountain to the south and sweeping hillsides of pinyon pine to the north. This trail serves primarily as a connector between other trails. It links Jim Higgs Trail #1937, Almosta Trail #622, and Jim and Gayle Higgs Trail #1959 to create several long, meandering routes ideal for horseback riding in this remote area. This trail also bridges Baby Granite Trail #320 and Tin Trough Springs Trail #308, which together comprise an 8.5-mile loop within the Granite Mountain Wilderness.

 

 

Expect hot, dry conditions and meager shade during the summer months. There is no drinking water at the trailhead or on the trail.
