“A trail through a forested section of Chiricahua's spires with views of the Mushroom Rock and Chiricahua Mountains.”— Anne Travels
After about 0.75 miles, the trail will enter a section of burned forest. The trail continues over low, rolling hills between the blackened trunks, with new vegetation growing out of the sun-baked soil.
At 1.25 miles from the Ed Riggs / Hailstone Trail Junction, the trail junctions with the Big Balanced Rock Trail (left / straight) and the Inspiration Point Trail (right). This is the official end of the Mushroom Rock Trail, although the hike can be extended to access Inspiration Point or loop around to the parking area via the Big Balanced Rock Trail.
