Blackett's Ridge Trail
This is one of the "Must See" hikes in the area, if your in town for a short while and want a hike with spectacular views of the Coronado National Forest, then you have to do this one. After you park your car in the lot, walk over to the Bear Canyon trail head, it will be off to the right of the visitors center. Shortly after you start the hike you will come to a paved tram road, turn right and walk along the paved tram road until you come to a small building, cross the bridge to your right and start out along the Phoneline Trail, very shortly you'll see the trail head sign for Blacketts Ridge Trail. At the top you'll have incredible views of Thimble Peak to the Northeast and an awesome view of the Phoneline Trail way down below.
