This trail provides a connecting link from TR #39 to TR #37 and is another access to the Granite Mountain Wilderness. It is another of the recreational trails in this area that were originally roads built mostly in the late 1800's to provide horseback access to springs and other cattle waters. They were later adopted by the Prescott National Forest as part of the overall transportation system on the Forest. Many of these old unmaintained roads are now being closed or converted to recreational trails. This trail is one of those.

The trail goes due north for about one mile and then turns east, passing the turnoff to East Tank. Within another mile, the trail intersects TR #39 coming from the north. It is then another 1.2 miles, traveling southeast to TR #37.

Directions: From Prescott, Take the Iron Springs Road west for approximately 9.25 miles from downtown. Turn north on FR 102A. The trailhead is approximately .8 miles north of the Iron Springs Road on the right side of FR 102A just north of Buckman Flat Spring and before the road turns due west.
