Arizona has a vast and gorgeous landscape, and one of the best places to view it is on the Aspen Spring Trail. This well-maintained trail cuts through Arizona's wilderness, and provides plenty of space to walk on, with 40 inches of width and packed soil. The trail has a gradual climb, with an average grade of 10% that can make it an easy-going hike for you and your pup. The trail is located in Hualapai Mountain Park, about three-fourths of a mile from the park's main road.
When you and Fido find the trail, you'll be greeted by rows of lush vegetations, including tall oak trees, walnuts, and canyon maples. There's plenty of shade along the path, with large rocks and fallen over logs acting as makeshift benches for rest. After only a short time on the trail, you'll be greeted with your first landmark, an old cave that housed the Silver Bell Mine that was open from the 1870s until 1994.
It won't be long until you and Fido will see some of the spectacular beauty of the area, with rough landscapes and flat desert surrounding the mountainous area. You can see the area even better from Kingman Overlook, which offers a distinct view of the town down below and the Cerbat Mountains. You and Fido won't be the only ones enjoying the mountains since the trail is also open to mountain bikers, horse riders, ATV riding, and snowshoeing hikers. The trail also offers plenty of places to rest, and overlooks to take a break on and let others pass.
You and Fido will love the views, the shade, and the fresh mountain air, and can continue along the connecting trail of Potato Patch Loop for an even longer hike.
