Trail Highlights This trail takes you on a six mile hike through some of the area burned out by the Rodeo-Chediski Fire of 2002, providing fabulous views and prolific wild flowers. Due to little shade, this is a good winter or spring hike, because it is dry when others are not. This is the farthest West trail in the White Mountain Trail System. Check with the Black Mesa Ranger District regarding conditions of the Cottonwood Trail.
