Description

From Gascon Trail 239 between Jarosa Creek and Pecos Falls, the Pecos Trail heads to the north. After an initial steep and rocky climb, the trail generally remains high on the ridge west of the Pecos River. The trail may be difficult to find where it travels through meadows and becomes more obscure as it gets father from the Gascon Trail. It eventually begins to climb again through dense forest and makes a final steep, narrow, and rocky ascent to the Santa Barbara Divide and the junction with Skyline Trail 251. This last section of trail has a sheer drop-off and may be difficult for pack stock.
