Part of the Boggy Draw Trail System.

Boggy Draw Upper Loop is a moderate 10-mile trail. Boggy Draw Upper Loop can be accessed from the northern end of the Boggy Draw Lower Loop.

The trail gains over 900 feet in the loop and is the furthest northern trail in the Boggy Draw trail system. Much of this trail system was built by linking together cow paths created by the cattle that graze here every summer. Eventually, the Mavericks Loop trail was added along with the Bean Canyon Loop and Italian Canyon Loop.
