Trail 327 - Potts Creek Trail south of Thumb Butte is part of the Prescott Circle Trail (PCT). This trail runs from FR51 to Trail 393 - Cold Spring Trail and provides the link on the PCT between Trail 322 - Circle Connection Trail and Trail 393. Originally it followed an old road but has been rerouted in many places onto a single track to avoid eroded areas and to make it more interesting.

Therefore you go back and forth from single track to dirt road. There are intersections with many other trails in the Thumb Butte area providing opportunities for many loop.
