This was a simple, almost just gravel road. Any SUV or truck would do just fine. The drive itself is a little boring until you get near the top and get a view of Roosevelt Lake which is absolutely beautiful. That beauty remains all the way back down the other side. The multitude of side trails seem to be quite a bit more difficult (fun if you have a properly equipped vehicle) but the drive itself is worth it just for the views.

Fun times. That hill climb is no joke but we made it in our stock forester. The sand and whoops were fun towards the end. Cantu wail to go here again. Probably check out four peaks next.

Saturday 4/6/2019. Great ride at 4 Peaks. 67.5 miles. Stagged at first area off of 87 and rode over to Tonto Basin and had lunch at Butcher Hook and then rode back. took about 8 hours with lots of breaks. weather was great. looked like the rode was grated recently although it's still Rocky in areas. Tons of side by sides, quads, 4×4's and 2 mini vans (LMFAO). River in Tonto Basin was high. Maybe 2 or 3 feet so couldn't cross. had to take 188 to Butcher Hook.

Not bad. Dry and nice view of weavers needle and the lake.

This was an awesome trail great views and pretty easy! There are views of the lake almost the entire way and then an awesome view of four peaks at the end. This is a great fall, winter and spring trail.

Cool little trail has a few challenges but over all pretty easy. I saw folks out there with stock vehicles, don't know how they faired. I think for a novice like me with a semi equipped vehicle it was fun. took my lunch and some picks. definitely ready for more challenges now. definitely a confidence gainer for me. beautiful views almost the whole way. only saw people at the beginning and the end mostly free traveled the whole route

Great day in the Four Peaks Wilderness! We drove from 87 to 188. We took a detour took Mazatzal divide trail to the dead end, what beautiful wilderness we have in our backyard!

Dry with some creek fords, some road maintenance going on, but all in all a smooth passage, with very little traffic, and lots of photo ops. While there may be times when four wheel drive is not absolutely necessary, it would not be the same kind of fun.

Trail is not complicated at all. I would imagine any 4x4 can make it. The road to the 188 has nice views and smoother than the 143 and happened to have some snow on it. Once you make it to that town there is a diner, a bar, a hardware store,and grocery store all in one. Great staff and food was good. You end up about 20 miles from Payson. Recommend for a scenic drive

Is there a website with up to date status of the Four Peaks road other than here? Drove out there today, & it was closed. Would have been nice to know before I went. Thanks!

tried to go up today but the road is still closed . I'm assuming from the snow this last couple weeks

Beautiful easy drive, some nice pull out areas to take pictures camp, have lunch etc. Great examples of different biomes here in Arizona. Did the trail in late Feb. and had decent weather a little chilly but nice. Great views of the valley. Would recommend doing this as a long day trip starting at 143 going to Roosevelt lake, then going down 188 to do Apache Trailing coming back to phoenix for a nice big loop.

we we're so excited for this trail since it was supposed to go straight through to the 188 but it's closed 1/4 of the way through. I don't know if it's just because of the amount of snow that fell this past few days or what but we arrived to the gate and law enforcement there writing tickets to the few on ATVs on the other side of the gate.

Hopefully the gate opens at again soon but right now it's an extremely busy dirt road. Again, I'm assuming its because of the snow.

We didn't go all the way, but the trip to the top of the mountain was great.

My wife and I took this trail on as our first off road. just right as the trail progresses it gets a little more challenging but nothing outrageous. the views were spectacular even with the peaks socked in. we opted to turn around at 2 hours rather than continue to 188. 4x4 probably wasn't needed except in some mud as it had rained the prior day. Used a trail rated Rubicon.

any 2wd truck, jeep, suv will make it to the top. But don't try it in a stock car or minivan unless your willing to loose some front bumper wind skirt of maybe the bumper.

Wow. Easy to get off track if u don’t follow the map. Hills r steep and very challenging. There was one trail off the route I couldn’t get by in my Wrangler. Rocks were so big and made it very steep I turned around and went back to marked trail. Without this app I would probably been out there all night. Lol. This app is very very useful!

Accidentally hiked this trail on the way to Brown's Peak. The first part of the trail is decent, but it eventually becomes hard to follow.
Wonderful area besides!

Let's be honest here. This is a "road", not a trail. It's a great choice for the "family SUV" if you want to take the family for a Sunday drive - nice views and a nice cool place to have a picnic at the summit. You'll get your SUV dusty, but if you're looking for an off-road excursion that takes any amount of skill and a vehicle not designed to get groceries, there are many better choices in the same vicinity.

Fun easy trail, great for first time off roaders. Some fun spots and lots of great scenery and photo opportunities.
