From FR 9404J, the trail climbs steeply to an elevation of over 7800 feet to Mt. Davis. From there to Mr. Union, the trail stays along this high ridge. The trail from there takes a long three mile descent of about 1800 feet in elevation change to the Orofino Mine and FR 52. The trail north of this point is scheduled for maintenance in 1991 and following that should be in good shape. The trail from here proceeds south along Longfellow Ridge to Pine Mountain. The trail ends on FR 82A (Trails End Mine Road). Beyond Pine Mountain, however, the trail is brushy and difficult to find and follow. It is not recommended for use until maintenance is done.
Directions: From Prescott, Go east on Highway 69 for 4.9 miles to the Walker Road turnoff. On the north edge of the Walker townsite, FR670 turns east and then south to the Snowdrift Mine. Follow this road for four miles. Just a quarter mile north of the Snowdrift Mine, take FR 9490J to the northwest for .25-.5 miles to the trailhead.
