Cabin Loop Trail – Houston Brothers Trail
This month’s outing was an overnight backpacking trip along Houston Brother Trail part of the Cabin Loop Trail system. The Cabin Loop Trail is the link between the earliest fire guard cabin network in this area of the Mogollon Rim and has its roots at the beginning of the Forest Service era here.
Saturday morning the troop drove to the Houston Brothers Trailhead along Forest Service Road 139 near Happy Jack, AZ. We hike 5.5 miles along the Houston Brothers Trail where we passed the Aspen Spring Cabin and then camped at Pinchot Cabin.
The next day we ate and packed up then returned the way we came in.
