Walk a pleasant trail that swings by the Hitchcock Ranch and then heads north
through a scenic canyon. The Loy Canyon Trail goes all the way up to the
Mogollon Rim, 5 miles, but because this is a round trip hike, you may turn
around and return to the trailhead at any time.
After the hike, those interested in history can visit the Honanki Indian Ruins, which are just 0.7 miles on down the road. A Red Rock Pass, $5, is required for the ruins but not for the trailhead.
