Managing Agency: Coconino National Forest
Journal: "Into the Woods Again"
**Kid Friendly Hike**
Directions to Trailhead:
From Payson, go N 32 miles on AZ 87 to mile marker 284.6. Turn left on FR 616 and drive 3.2 miles to Pivot Rock Canyon Campground. Turn into the campground and follow the narrow dirt road .3 miles until it dead ends. The trail begins here. This is also the trailhead for the Pivot Rock Canyon Trail and the Wildcat Springs Trail.
From the end of the dirt road, the trail follows above Pivot Rock Creek. After .25 miles, descend a rocky staircase to the water. Turn right and go approximately 20 yards to the junction with a small side canyon. The trail is hard to discern near the creek junction but as you head up the side canyon it becomes easier to follow.
The canyon is lush and green. About .5 miles past the creek junction you will encounter some aspen trees. The trail and the canyon continue until you reach Pivot Rock Spring and FR 616.
Return the way you came.
