From the Pinal Peak Trailhead, the Squaw Spring Trail #196 drops abruptly off the east facing side of the peak and initially follows the bottom of a shallow fern covered drainage in a southeasterly direction. After 1/4 mile the trail passes through a gate (be sure to close it) to Squaw Spring. After about 1.5 miles, travelers can view Pioneer Basin from a ridge. The last 1000 feet before reaching Pioneer Pass the trail is an old jeep road. Starting from the Pioneer Pass Trailhead this trail is one of the easier ascents to Pinal Peak.
Directions: From Glode, Drive south on Forest Route 112 for about 3.5 miles to Forest Route 55. Turn southwest and travel on 55 to its junction with Forest Route 651. Follow 651 until it ends near the Pinal Peak trailhead.
