drive
•  Take US 60 (Superstition Freeway) to Apache Junction, then US 60 to Florence Junction > Superior > Miami > Claypool, then Arizona 188 fifteen miles to the junction with Arizona 288, then 20 miles to the trailhead just beyond milepost 278.
The trailhead will be on the east (right) side of the road, just past the Arizona Department of Transportation maintenance yard and housing. On the east (right) side of the road, there will be a square brown and white trailhead sign with trail number 160, marking the parking area. This sign is only visible to traffic coming from the south, and it is easy to miss (if you hit the 180-degree curve to the left where highway 288 crosses Parker Creek, you have gone too far north).
