The first and last 1.5 miles are along a dirt road that is the only access to the trailhead
at this point.
This hike covers the west side of Haunted Canyon Trail 203 to Tony’s Cabin, a distance of about four miles one way. The trail winds its way up and down through scenic high desert chaparral, with a mix of agave, prickly pear cactus, Manzanita, chokeberry, and plenty of nasty catclaw acacia, then eventually traverses through a thick pine forest before reaching the cabin. Some of this trail is badly overgrown, and fallen timber and debris occasionally obstructs a clear view of the trail ahead. Long sleeves and long pants are highly recommended for protection from the prickly over-growth. We’ll take a rest and lunch break at the cabin before heading back to the trailhead along the same route.
