Fun, easygoing trail with great views at the top. No problem for a stock 2017 Tacoma TRD Sport.

Fun, relatively easy, had a couple tricky areas but no problems in a stock Jeep. Beautiful views and lots of wildflowers in the spring time.

Excellent 4wd ride for a half-day or full-day. It can be a little crowded in parts on a nice weather weekend...otherwise I'd give this road a five star rating. The lower parts of the loop are fairly easy going. The higher parts (especially along FS 650) can get tricky at times. I've been on this road several times, and the condition of the road is never the same two trips in a row. If there has been any weather recently, parts of the loop can be slippery, or even snow covered in winter months. There are several shallow streams you'll cross. I've never been up there when they've been deep enough to consider not crossing, but I bet it happens at times.
So...the rating of easy to moderate for this road can depend on current conditions. Personally, I wouldn't drive the entire loop without a high clearance 4WD vehicle in good working condition. Good tires and all...
The views, trails and wildlife along this route are awesome! One of these weekends, I'm going to camp overnight in one of the spots up high. There are many!
Oh, and one last consideration. The trail rating says dog friendly. Personally, I wouldn't bring any dog up there (or anywhere in Superstition Wilderness and similar areas) if that dog hasn't been through training to ignore rattlesnakes. This isn't a problem in the winter when the snakes hibernate. But there ARE rattlesnakes in the summer. And way more dogs get in trouble with rattlesnakes than humans do. There are several options for training your dog about rattlesnakes by going to this link - https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=dog+rattlesnake+training&*

Had a great time on this trail. Lotsa folks sharing this trail. Why some people start in the opposite direction is beyond belief. Trail does get really narrow. Springtime views are beautiful.

Great for 4x4s

The Coke Ovens are located on private property and the owner is aggressively protecting his ownership rights. Beware.

Great trail! Not too rocky or crazy, gets narrow in some places, and that's coming from a Honda Element driver haha.

Very hard to find the trail because there really is no trail. You just walk through the canyon. To get there, stay on the dirt road for about 4 miles. Once you descend a steep and rocky stretch of dirt road, you will see a 1ft x 1ft white sign. The sign said something like "pack it in, pack it out". Go to the right of this sign. There will be a trail marker about 100 yds down that road. That's where the "trail" starts. There are some points of interests like in the pics. The canyon looks great. We went in December and there wasn't too much water.

It was a lot of fun. Went with some out of town friends and the hubby. We all had an amazing time. We drove an element and it got through everywhere pretty easily. Recommended for sure!
