Like many of the trails in this area, Upper Pasture Trail #38 was originally a road built in the late 1800's to provide horseback access to springs and other cattle waters. Evidence of this history is marked by an old horse trough beside the trail, slowly turning to rust with the rhythm of the elements. This trail stays in pinyon-juniper woodland and mixed chaparral. Watch for scrub jays and towhees moving from branch to branch. Wildflowers of every color, including creamy yarrow and bright red penstemon, grow along the path. Large granite boulders balanced at precarious angles throw shadows across the landscape. The best shade along this route, however, is found under the boughs of a few large alligator junipers that provide enticing spots to take a break and enjoy the view of Little Granite Mountain.

The western half of Upper Pasture Trail #38 can be used to access the Big Alligator Juniper tree when combined with White Rock Spring Trail #39. The western half of Trail #38 is mostly old doubletrack while the eastern half of Trail #38 is singletrack.


The eastern half of Trail #38 meanders through the 2013 Doce Fire burn area, but it's actually in decent shape.
