The trail provides visitors to Dogtown Lake with an interesting, scenic day hike to the top of Davenport Hill and back. The higher elevation of the hill (7805 feet) and the northern exposure of the trail provide hikers with a cool climatic change and also a change in vegetation from ponderosa pine to Douglas fir/white fir and oak near the summit. From the trail, you can enjoy scenic views of Dogtown Lake and the country around Williams.

The trail follows Dogtown Wash about 0.3 mile and then climbs to a flat, where it follows an old logging road before turning north toward Davenport Hill. The trail ascends the hill at a gradual 8% grade to the top. Follow the same trail back to the start.

Directions: From Williams, Turn south on Fourth Street (County Road 73) and go about 4 miles to FR 140. Turn east onto FR 140 and follow about 3 miles to FR 132; turn north onto FR 132 and go to the campground (about one mile). From the boat ramp parking area, walk the Ponderosa Trail to the east end of the loop.
