This route accesses a large network of great OHV trails. You can ride for days, but it’s very easy to get lost. Follow these directions carefully until you become familiar with the area. A fantastic place for ATVs, UTVs and dirt bikes. Those looking for extreme challenge can attempt to get through the rocky canyon east of “Squeeze Rock.” If you do any shooting, please pack out everything. No MVUM was available for this area at time of this writing.

I’ve done this trail several times over the past 16 years and ran it yesterday with 3 – Rubicon’s lifted on 35’s and 2 Hummers We ran this trail backward as described in the book and found the section near squeeze rock described as very steep uphill (shown in red ) between waypoints 3 & 4 to washed out to attempt without risking serious damage. One section was washed out with a 3.5′ vertical ledge, we returned the way we came in. Still a great trip and another beautiful day in AZ.
Tonto National Forest has removed the temporary closure due to the fires for this trail. Road conditions may have changed, don’t go alone.

The early part and last part is really disappointing with all the trash left by shooters. Not particularly scenic either. However, the red part is quite worthwhile. Running clockwise, the first portion has an obstacle that is very difficult even with 37’s and 4″ lift. We high centered but managed to pull thru. beyond that, it was a blast. The portion noted in the book with washouts is a bit tricky but the correct trail becomes apparent. Highly recommend.
AS SAID BEFORE DO NOT GO WHEN RAINING. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DO https://www.reddit.com/r/4x4/comments/osgex6/from_this_weekends_flash_flood_one_of_a_few/
