Overview

Take scenic drive across mountain face near historic Jerome.

Just getting to this trail is a scenic treat. You’ll climb through Jerome, a quaint historic mining town, art center and bustling tourist attraction with great restaurants and art galleries. After the town, 89A continues to weave its way to the base of 7,860-ft. Woodchute Mountain. Once on the trail, you’ll climb halfway up the mountain, then level off on a twisty adventure across the mountain’s face. Breaks in the trees offer high views of impressive Verde Valley.

Lots of fun driving and several great viewpoints! Rather bumpy, very rocky, but no big boulders, typical moderate. Prius has no chance here! Few spots need driver attention. Run it all on 4L, and sway bar disconnected for a smoother ride. No need for lockers or tire deflation. However, the trail really needs major brushing, we were constantly running into branches from both sides and even from the top. I would not take full-size vehicle here. The trail is lightly traveled, I suspect because the gates on both ends may scare people. These are for livestock, not for cars! This is 100% public land.
