“A fun connector route between the Navajo Rocks and Horsethief trail systems.”— Daniel Christianson
The first mile is a twisty route across an open meadow, a dirt road and cattle guard before gradually starting up into the pinion pines. Once in the trees, the trail constantly transitions between rock and hard pack, working its way out along the edges of the canyons whenever possible. Even heading uphill the trail maintains good flow and never seems to climb for too long or be overly steep. However, it can be a challenge, construction design here leans more towards creating a constantly changing technical ride rather than an all out fast trail.
At roughly five miles, the trail nears the Horsethief Campground, and then crosses the dirt access road. A small parking area and map/info kiosk is here. Shortly after is another route into the campground and the Rowdy trail. From the Campground, the Chisholm Trail can be accessed via two short trails; one directly across from the main entrance and the second at campsite #50 which is also conveniently close to a restroom.
Continuing on the Chisholm is the same fast and challenging trail but on more of an even elevation for the next 1.5 miles to where it crosses UT313. Here is another parking area with a map/info kiosk. The trail then makes a fun and fast descent to where it terminates at the intersection with the Mustang Loop.
