How to get there: The city of Tucson, Arizona is a good point of departure. Get on the interstate I-10, direction east and drive approximately 62 miles to exit number 318, exit here and start to measure.
You are now on a short-cut road across to Hwy. 191. First, pass through Dragoon, then continue to Hwy. 191, you will see some indistry (large chimmney) on your left. Arrive at Hwy. 191 at mile 13.0, make a right turn here. At mile 30.5, you arrive at the intersection with Hwy. 181, make a left turn here onto Hwy. 181. At mile 42.8, Hwy. 181 makes a sharp left, while your route continues straight ahead, this is a good dirt road suitable for ordinary cars. This road is called Turkey Creek Road. At mile 49.1, there is a dip in the road that may be flooded, check before crossing. At mile 51.2, you cross a cattle guard and enter the Coronado National Forest. Finally, at mile 52.8, you pass a campground and at mile 53.7, the road ends. We parked off the road just below the turn-around, there may be a few more possibilities. This is the trailhead, location N31:51.005, W109:19.538, elevation about 2050 meter.
