- Los Caballos is one of the longest trails in the White Mountain Trail System. The trail winds its way through beautiful ponderosa pine and pinon-juniper woodland at elevations much lower than the east side of the district. Because temperatures can be several degrees higher here with less shade, some people may prefer to use this trail in spring, fall, or even winter. This trail offers several scenic views of the Mogollon Rim and the White Mountain Apache Reservation to the south.
The trail is difficult because of steep, rocky sections and the length of the trail. Be sure to bring more water and food than you think you will use, and plenty of sunscreen. If you are prepared, you'll have a great time; if not, it could be a long, grueling day.
There are options for those who want to do a shorter loop. One can follow the trail from the trailhead to where it crosses Forest Road 136, then return via this road. Another option is to continue to where the trail crosses Forest Road 140 and follow that road back to 136 and the trailhead. Be sure to pick up a map at the Ranger Station.
