Trail #318 passes through an area of pinyon and ponderosa pine, scrub oak, manzanita, and prickly pear cactus. It's a challenging climb for the first 1/4 mile with many rock obstacles. Once you reach the first summit it mellows out a bit and is a nice climb up to White Rock parking area.

Cross Thumb butte Rd. to Access Trail #324 Garden Party.
