The Oak Springs Trail leaves the Pine Trailhead at the southwest side of the parking lot.  You will pass through another of the Arizona Trail's beautiful iron gates before a short run takes you to Highway 87. 

After crossing the highway, continue on the Oak Springs Trail through another gate.  The trail meanders through some tall pines before intersecting with a Forest Service Road (FSR) 258, also known locally as Old County Road.

Signage will direct you along the FSR for just under a half mile, where you will encounter a steep rocky climb. If you are on a bike, riding beyond this point becomes challenging as you have many steep and rocky grades as you make your way to The Walnut Trail 251 and FSR 428 (Hardscrabble Mesa Road.)
