Great trail. Amazing views. Make sure to have an offline capable GPS when out and about. There is very limited cellular signal out this way.

Amazing views, found a couple of hidden camp sites near the high point of the road. Some loose rock in places but a very easy drive.

The views were beyond amazing but the trail was VERY bumpy most of the way. Easy trail but you want an SUV for sure! When you get to the end of the trail, if you choose to go back towards Globe just know it's about 2 hours around the mountain! Next time we will probably just turn around and go back thru the trail. We left phoenix and round trip we put on 190 miles from our house n back to go on this 26 mile trail. Just make sure you have all day! It was nice to drive along Roosevelt Lake and the mountain drive back on the 60 was very scenic too!

we did this Trail and then look back through Apache Trail to Roosevelt what a good day

pretty simple trail. passenger cars can get around if they are careful.
pine trees for the last 15 minutes or so, mostly brush. there are a few nice places to camp along the creek.

Great trail that takes you out to Roosevelt Lake. Most suv's and trucks should have no problem..

Great ride. Very little traffic for a Friday in April. If you want more challenging trails, take the side roads near the cell tower.

If you're looking for a challenging 4WD ride, this isn't it. If that's what you're looking for, I give this three stars or even two stars. It does required a high clearance vehicle, and ideally 4WD. It has some rocky and rutted patches along the way, but nothing brutal. If it's rained or snowed lately, you might cross some shallow trickling streams.
However...if you're looking for a half-day to all-day scenic drive with opportunities for hiking, camping or just relaxing and taking in the views...I give this ride four stars. If you start from Hwy 87, the first stretch can be crowded with ATVs. Traffic thins out the farther up you go. And the views get more spectacular the farther up you go. There are a couple forest service trailheads near the top that you might want to check out also. Take your time. Enjoy. The road is almost 30 miles long. It ends at Hwy 188 in Tonto Basin. If you don't want to drive the same way back, hang a right on 188 and it'll take you back to Hwy 87 in about 14 miles.
