Enjoy a leisurely hike that spans green pastures, a sparkling creek and tall ponderosa pine!

Built in 2012, this loop is part of the white mountain trail system and you may park directly at the trailhead. A paved walking path starts at the trailhead and leads you to a bridge that provides a beautiful view of Show Low Creek and the surrounding meadow. 

After crossing the bridge, you will embark on a subtle incline that enters the tall ponderosa pine. Do not mistake the dirt road on the right as the trail, but continue until the paved walkway ends and the dirt trail begins on your right. 

You will start a short climb and note some large boulders in the area with a sign that says Woolford Trailhead. Continue to the right to complete the loop where you will eventually circle back by hiking the base of the bluff. Continue along the trail and it will take you back towards the bridge where you started. Be sure to bring a camera to snap photos of the beautiful meadow, wildflowers and grazing horses.
