Driving Directions

From Clifton take Highway 191 north 67 miles to trail #33, turn left onto the dirt road and proceed about 1/2 mile.


The access road to the trailhead passes by the location of an old sawmill camp. Not much remains except for a few pieces of machinery and vehicles. Some good loop opportunities exist using East Eagle Trail as a starting point. The trail was partially reconstructed and re-routed in 1994 with support from the Arizona State Trails Heritage Fund and the Trailblazers, a local volunteer group from Greenlee County. Sawmill Cabin is reached after 7.5 miles. This cabin is maintained by the grazing permit holder but is open to the public. You are asked to leave it as you found it or better. West of Sawmill Cabin the canyon widens out. Previous floods have washed away much of the trail so you will need to pick your way through the rocks. The trail ends or starts west of the cabin at Honeymoon Campground.
