Description

From the Pinal Peak Trailhead, Pioneer Trail 196 drops abruptly off the east-facing side of the peak and initially follows the bottom of a shallow fern-covered drainage in a southeasterly direction. After ¼ mile, the trail passes through a gate (be sure to close it) to Squaw Spring. After about 1.5 miles, travelers can view Pioneer Basin from a ridge. In the last 1000 feet before reaching Pioneer Pass, the trail was an old jeep road. Starting from the Pioneer Pass Trailhead, this trail is one of the easier ascents to Pinal Peak.
