Overview

Rough side trip leaves County Road 24 north of Cave Creek.

This short well-traveled trail follows Big Maggie May Creek at the beginning. Trail then climbs along the ridge tops with high views of Gray Gulch and New River. For additional challenge, you can continue on legal roads beyond the portion described here. Unlicensed ATVs and UTVs are allowed on this trail, but you must transport to Waypoint 01. Forest Road 24 is for licensed vehicles only.

Drove the whole trail today. Took us 3 hours out and back with some quick stops along the way. Trail was appropriately marked as moderate. We drove it with a stock Wrangler Unlimited with good A/T 31" tires with no issues...with smart wheel placement, especially through the noted "tippy" areas which required careful passage to avoid bridging. Overall fun trail with some good views.
