|The loop takes it's name from the historic site down on the flat below the trail, where an early camp and cavalry barracks (Fort Beale) once stood. If you'd like a scenic walk in the hills, this 3.2-mile loop trail of the Cerbat Foothills Recreation Area will fill the bill.
Camp Beale Loop Traihead - This trailhead, managed by the City of Kingman, can be accessed by turning east on Fort Beale Drive off of U.S. Highway 93, about 1/2 mile north of the I-40 interchange in Kingman, AZ. Drive 1.2 miles north and east on Fort Beale Drive to a paved road on your left marked 'Camp Beale loop Trail'. Follow this road up the hill for a short distance to trailhead parking.
The trail climbs gently up a ridge from 3,640 feet to a well-deserved rest bench 460 hundred feet higher at the top, then returns a different way. Panoramas take in Kingman, the Hualapai Mountains, and surrounding valleys and hills.
