this trail starts near Schultz Tank and then climbs gradually to a high ridge where you'll find good views of Arizona's tallest mountain before continuing on to the east edge of Mount Elden's summit plateau. From this high perspective you can look down on Sunset Crater and the huge Bonito Lava Flow that borders it. Sunset Trail has some smooth singletrack and some very technical boulder and loose rock sections. Bring your trials skills. Meadows, forests, and vistas.
Sunset Trail provides a connecting route to Schultz Creek, Brookbank, Little Bear Trail, Upper Oldham, and Elden Lookout Trails, as well as many other renegade trails.
