great trail very pretty, two wheel drive the whole way, however be careful of monsoon season, half the road towards lake pleasant goes through washes. took us three hours from our house in Avondale and back. it was super fun, highly recommend it.

Fun trail.. lights bumps in a few spots but other then that, very smooth. Well kept up road. Saw some wildlife. No 4x4 needed. Did this in a 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Great road and great scenery. This was accessible by most cars. Nothing hard in this run. Most of the road had just been scraped so it was relativity smooth.

We drove the entire loop on Castle Hot Springs Road with no problems. Road conditions were mostly good, some areas slightly washed out from the recent rains. River beds, creek beds, and washes still had some water running across the road, but it was shallow and we were able to cross with no problems. We have a Jeep but didn't need to put it in four wheel drive at all. It's a nice drive, a lot of interesting sights to see. We even saw a group of wild horses with one burro hanging out with them!. If you're looking for an easy drive, I highly recommend this trail.

Road construction on the western part of the drive. Otherwise it is a nice drive with lots of well graded roads. Some areas are prone to flash flooding.

Fantastic drive! Road is well groomed and easily travelable by most vehicles. The last review said the road was closed about 3 miles in, but we were able to travel the entire route from the East side of the 74 to Morristown. When we reached Castle Hot Springs we were amazed at the progress of the resort and can’t wait for it to be finished so we can check it out a bit closer. https://www.castlehotsprings.com

Went there today and if traveling westbound on trail from Lake Pleasant to Morristown the trail is closed at the Hot Castle Springs Hotel. All vehicles had to turn around so it was about a 3 mile ride. Anyone know if this will open again or is it now closed with the opening of the hotel?

Awesome scenic drive, would really like to hike or bike it. It would be an easy hike. Good gravel/sand road for mountain or trail bike, not road bikes. Many photo opps of rough terrain, cliffs and rock formations of many colors, highly recommended during golden hours. Good opp to see multiple groups of wild burros. Yes, it’s Easy to drive with a 2 wheel vehicle with some decent clearance IF ITS DRY! Many washes to cross, and a few places the wash is a good part of the road. We travelled in direction from Mt Pleasant to Morristown. Enjoy, it’s like a whole different world back there.

Extremely easy off roading, unless you have a lowered sedan you’ll be 100% fine. Great views although the trails pretty long.

Really beautiful drive. Drove it in a 2WD Kia Sportage with no problem whatsoever. Not busy at all today (Friday).

It was a nice trail, beautiful views, it's a great way to get to the lake as well. It's definitely not a moderate trail, I would say easy at best most any car can probably do this trail.

A great way to spend your day! Very easy trail, especially for a first timer. A little bumpy toward Lake Pleasant, but over all, it was a good ride. Highly recommend checking this out!

Castle Hot Springs road can be picked up either in Morristown (off US-60) or from its other terminus on AZ-74, close to Lake Pleasant. 2wd accessible, though there are sometimes rough spots in the regolith. It's too bad that the Hot Springs themselves are closed, apparently from some private landowners who aren't really taking care of the place, but it is also a nice drive with some awesome views of the Heiroglyphic Mountains.
