“This is a pleasant, well-graded trail past Bog Springs to Kent Spring, with big views along the way.”— Bruce Hope
At 0.9 miles from the trailhead, the #156 leaves the old road to the right (east) and becomes a trail again. It will remain a trail all the way to Kent Spring. The trail climbs gradually on long traverses and short switchbacks until, 1.6 miles from the trailhead, you reach Bog Springs. There is a short side trail going down to the springs.
Past the springs the trail continues to climb until, at about 2.25 miles from the trailhead, it turns the corner of a ridge and begins contouring south toward Kent Spring. There are some excellent viewpoints along this stretch of the trail. You can expect good views of Madera Canyon, the Baboquivari Mountains, and Kitt Peak Observatory to the west.
At 2.8 miles from the trailhead, the Bog Springs Trail #156 ends at Kent Spring and its junction with the Kent Spring Trail #157.
