“A trail down a valley with a somewhat misleading name as there is an abundance of trees.”— Ethan Martinson
The southeast corner of the trail has a junction with the Maah Daah Hey trail. There are a number of trail makers at the junction, but in case they are missing, know that the Lone Tree Trail does not cross the creek. The trail passes immediately next to Tomamichael Spring. There is a trough at the spring so wildlife could be spotted in that area. The water from the spring is not considered safe to drink without being treated. Completing the trail via the South Petrified Forest Trail will be a 12 mile hike.
The trail can also be accessed by following the Ekblom Trail starting at the Peaceful Valley Ranch or from the Cottonwood Campground and getting on the Maah Daah Hey. Both of these options require crossing the Little Missouri River. Checking the current river level is advisable before attempting either option.
