The trail, which begins at Loop B of Canyon Point Campground, provides the forest visitor with a unique experience. The trail leaves the developed setting of the campground quickly behind and traverses to the lip of a sinkhole and then descends steeply to the bottom.
Upon entering the sinkhole, the environment changes dramatically. Thick with tall Ponderosa Pine, aspen, Douglas and white firs, the sinkhole also harbors a variety of flowers and shrubbery.
Canyon Point Campground is located 17 miles southwest of Heber, Arizona along State Highway 260. Enter the campground and follow the signs to Loop B. Once on Loop B you'll see signs for Sinkhole Trail.
Best Season: Spring through Fall
Restrictions: Smoking and campfire restrictions may be in effect during the summer months.
