First to Review

This is a beautiful part of the upper Arizona grasslands but lets be clear that this is a relatively flat dirt road and not a hiking trail. We were able to drive in the first 2 miles in our cross over SUV (2-WD) and we could have done much more but we decided to walk. There are interesting things here to see: old cattle pens that had to be from two centuries ago, literally fading into the landscape, large watering holes and two ancient Indian ruins with lots of Petroglyphs. We walked about 6 miles round trip and a ranger we met told us we that the road goes all the way to carefree. This road would be great for mountain biking or OHV as well.
