April 19 and April 27, 2014
So, what do Little Horse and Broken Arrow have in common? Well, they are both trails and they both take you to Chicken Point. Difference is, one is by foot and the other by jeep.
First, Little Horse...a 3 mile in and out hike.
This was the second hike we did.
It was recommended to us by a couple we met on the Courthouse Loop.
The trail leads thru a stand of Arizona cypress...
...gave us great views of The Sisters. At first far away,
and then closer.
And took us right by the Chapel of the Holy Cross.
It was an easy hike. There were lots of ups and downs, zigs and zags and rock scrambling to keep the trail fun.
Wildflowers were blooming!
Then, this past Sunday, we drove the Broken Arrow 4X4 trail. This was recommended on the www.ohtheplacestheygo.com blog site. In fact, it was the first jeep trail John and Pam took in their jeep.
What fun...all smiles from us!
This trail is rated difficult in our Guide to Arizona Backroads & 4- Wheel-Drive Trails It wasn't a long trail...only 3.8 miles roundtrip, but it was full of ledges, slickrock, and narrow passages.
In fact, the trail is so narrow that backing up to find a pull-off was a requirement to pass. Extra wide and extra long vehicles would definitely have a problem!
So what is Chicken Point?
Its an absolutely beautiful spot for lunch! How nice it was to sit and enjoy the incredible views.
