Beginning at Pioneer Pass Trailhead below Pinal Peak, trail quickly enters the pine forest of upper Pinal Creek canyon. The trail proceeds to climb higher on the north slope to catch wonderful views of the Pinal Pass area, and the vast expanse of the San Carlos Apache Reservation. There are some good views of Pinal Peak to the west and then a gradual descent along the spine of the ridge which will eventually lead to switchbacking down to the floor of Pinal Creek. At the bottom of the switchbacks, the trail encounters a large sycamore tree, at the base of which is Bear Paw Spring. Return the way you came, or hike 1.55 miles up forest road 112, back to the Pioneer Pass Trailhead. We will grab a bite to eat somewhere in Globe.
