Highline Trail is a difficult 51-mile hike. The trail begins at Pine Trailhead on Highway 87 and ends at Two-sixty trailhead on Highway 260.
This historic trail was established in the late 1800's to link various homesteads and ranches under the Mogollon Rim. It was designated a National Recreation Trail in 1979. Several trailheads and spur trails provide access to Highline Trail, allowing it to be hiked in segments and loops.
Trails form the highline to the top of the Rim are generally steep, rocky and rugged, with elevations ranging from 5, 000 to 8,000 feet.
The Dude Fire of 1990 burned over 21 miles of the Highline and associated spur trails from Washington Park Trailhead to Hatchery Trailhead.
