One of the newest trails in the Hawes trail system for over 10 years and is also the first of many more to come in the near future Named Scorpion, because during the building phase we found a large scorpion over 6" long! (it lived).

This Trail will be the starting trail head to get to future trails in the future, currently gets you access to Horse Tail, NRA, High Horse, and others from the north. This is a great trail going south to north! Please take care of the trail so we can build more trails in the future!

Access Info

Bush Hwy, approximately 1/4 mile from the four way stop.
