“A great section of the Arizona Trail.”— Vernie Aikins
You'll have several sections to choose from: the Bellota AZT section or Italian Trap AZT section. This description is for the Bellota section.
Around mile 4.5 you'll come to a jeep road. The trail is off to the left, down and across the road. You'll ride through a sandy little wash and then reconnect with the trail. There will be another huge AZT sign. The trail continues heading west towards the mountain. You'll come across another jeep road at about mile 6.5. You'll stay on this jeep road for roughly 1.5 miles until you get to the junction with La Milagrosa.
From here you have a few options. You can head back which is the common day ride route, you can head down La Milagrosa, or you can go up a very miserable climb for about 2.5 miles to get you to Mt Lemmon highway.
