This is one of the nicer segments of the AZ Trail, however it is a long way from any paved roads. There is a water cache at Freeman road for through hikers. If you park here, please bring an extra gallon to donate and label it for public use.
The AZ Trail continues south from Freeman road past Antelope peak. The riding is better going north.
This is a good place for solitude. You might not see another soul the whole time.
Towards the northern end of the trail is a ranch to the east. The woman who lives there is friendly to mountain bikers and can help you if you get into trouble.
