Part of the Boggy Draw Trail System.

Mavericks Loop starts at the Boggy Draw Loop trailhead and heads south, and then east. It rolls along with a few short climbs and descends through the pinon forest to the south until you see a fence and a field. From there, it climbs to the east past the start of the Italian Canyon Trail and up to a small pond. The trail subsequently does a winding loop south and then back up north, near the same pond. The trail then heads west by a larger pond and some slickrock, then back to the parking lot. This trail is a moderate 6-mile trail which gains 485 feet.

Much of this trail 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.
