This trail is 6 miles long. It starts along FS561 shortly before you reach Transfer Campground. There is a sign on the right (east) side of the road for the Box Canyon Trail. This is a good place to park. The trail ends near Golconda, as it intersects FS556A.
This trail can be difficult to follow at times, particularly the section between Gray Beal Spring and Lucy Halls Park. Take a preloaded GPS route with you as well as a map. You will probably need both.
Many people do this trail as a loop combined with the West Mancos Trail heading back towards Transfer Campground. This makes for an 11 mile loop.
This trail can also be accessed by FS331 to eliminate some eroded and steep sections.
You will pass a few reservoirs along the way. This is Box Canyon Reservoir.
