    Babbitt Ranch

This passage begins just east of Cedar Ranch area where FR 417 and FR 9008A intersect. Look for the steel AZT sign and a small parking area. From here, the route follows Forest Road 417 for 2.4 miles, then travels north on Forest Road 9007 near Babbitt Lake (usually dry) for 2.4 miles. After crossing over the fenceline, the route becomes singletrack (constructed in 2021) and heads toward Chapel Mountain. You’re now on Babbitt Ranches’ CO Bar Ranch — private property with a special recreational easement. Please respect the livestock, ranchers and landscape in this area. Follow the scenic trail for 22.5 miles, crossing intermittent ranch roads through junipers and grasslands. A wildlife waterer can be found 1/2-mile west of the trail near Upper Lockwood Tank Road. Continuing northbound, the trail leaves Babbitt Ranch property and enters the Kaibab National Forest. A quick side trip to Moqui Stage Station provides a look back in time when this location served as a rest stop for weary stagecoach travelers on their way from Flagstaff to Grand Canyon.
