Description

Hikers starting from Panchuela should cross the bridge and follow the trail up the creek for about one mile. Horsemen should start from Cowles, ride the trail toward Panchuela and cross the creek at the stock crossing. At the junction with Cave Creek Trail 288 turn north to go up Dockweiler Trail 259. The trail begins a steep climb up several switchbacks to the top of a ridge known locally as Mystery Ridge. The trail levels off considerably but still continues to climb through a series of aspen groves. The junction with Rito Perro Trail 256 is found in a large open meadow. The Dockweiler Trail continues to the east along the slope of the Jack's Creek drainage and merges with Jack's Creek Trail 257 after about one mile. Continue up the trail and look for the continuation of the Dockweiler Trail.
