Part of the Boggy Draw Trail System.

Boggy Draw Lower Loop is an 11-mile trail. This trail is a “lollipop” style loop as it has a short loop on its far end, and is an out-and-back on its southern-end.

Boggy Draw Lower Loop can be accessed from a main intersection with Mavericks Trail and Bean Canyon Trail. The trail appears as a straight-shot northeast and makes its way to meet Boggy Upper Loop Trail.

Much of the Boggy Draw network was built by linking together cow paths created by the cattle that graze here every summer. Eventually, the Mavericks trail was added along with the Bean Canyon Loop and Italian Canyon Loop.
