“Don't Miss This Trail”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Whether you're a hiker, mountain biker, or on horseback, Brown's Canyon Trail accomodates everyone. Even leashed dogs are welcome, which isn't the case on some nearby trails. The trailhead head has an adequate parking area or you can drive up a bit further to park and get closer to the canyon. You have a choice of hiking to the Brown Ranch which loops back onto this trail or go directly into the canyon. Lots to see- a running stream part of the year, woods, interesting, yet easy trail with side trails to an old mine, ruins of a cabin, and an old family cemetery. There are plenty of wildflowers in the spring - fall, and you'll probably see some wildlife- Arizona gray squirrels being the most common. However deer, bears, and other larger mammals are a possibility. The trail ends at the junction with the National Forest. There you'll find a water trough for your horse or dog, and plenty of big rocks to sit a spell and eat your lunch. If you're up for an all day hike continue into the National Forest and that trail will take you to the Hamburg Trail which winds down into Ramsey Canyon Preserve. If you've only got a couple of hours, Brown's Canyon Trail is a great hike in and back to enjoy southeastern Arizona beauty.

As always, you should wear sturdy shoes, use sunscreen, and bring plenty of water and your camera. Watch for snakes- this is Arizona.
