Description

This is a very scenic and historic trail. Most of the trail is graded dirt road (40-50 mph)except the 14 miles into Jackson Cabin from Hooker Hot Springs which is considered easy-moderate (5-10 mph) and suited to any 4x4.

The trip takes us east on I-10 to Pomerene, north to Cascabel, east and north to Hooker Hot Springs. This area is owned by The Nature Conservancy and at present allowing vehicle traffic (who knows how long this will last, so take advantage of this great opportunity).

Several trails in the area have been permanently closed to OHV. Hooker Hot Springs has casitas for rent which includes hot spring privileges. Along the trail to Jackson Cabin we will pass several ranch houses (Browning, Pride) which are in remarkable shape including wind mills. The Pride ranch house can be rented for overnight stays.

We travel through several lush canyons with sycamores, cottonwood and huge oak trees. Jackson Cabin in a quaint little valley with lush vegetation and surrounding Galiuro Mountain cliffs. Jackson Cabin has a rich history and there is a log book full of stories for your enjoyment and add your own. The Cabin is fairly clean and cool inside thanks to the 2 foot thick rock walls. The Cabin is habitable for humans and can/has been used for camping (stove, fireplace, table, screens on windows and doors).
