    Route Description for Arnett Canyon Trail Segment

    From cows to lizards and deserts to woodlands, the Arnett Canyon Trail Segment is a delightful adventure that gives you plenty of space to stretch your legs without requiring that much elevation gain. It’s a great trail for hikers, horseback riders, and mountain bikers, so remember to share the trail with those around you. That being said, it’s usually not too busy out here.

    There’s a bit of shade on this trail, but you’ll still want to bring lots of water and wear sunscreen and a hat if it’s warm out. Finally, expect to see cows on this route. Give them plenty of space and they tend to be friendly as you pass. Watch out for the cow pies, though!

    From the trailhead, take the Arizona trail across the creek and keep left where it splits. You’ll continue onto L.O.S.T. Trail #221 alongside Arnett Creek. Watch for a cave on your left where the creek splits and continue hiking through the canyon. The route ends at the end of the canyon, where you can turn back and retrace your steps to the trailhead.
