Out in the deep depths of the northwestern Coconino National Forest is an old off-road dirt trail called Jerome Rd. Today it is primarily used as a connecting trail to and from Casner Mountain Trail. I can only speculate that the origins of this road have something to do with the old ghost town of Jerome or it's namesake, but even the oldest of maps do not show a direct geographic connection between the two. In fact most older maps don't cover this area very well at all because it's right in-between major cities, making it difficult to see the full picture.
Head south following the sign towards Winter Cabin trail. This is the northern end of the [538D / Turkey Butte Loop](http://www.trailsoffroad.com/trails/1952-turkey-butte-lookout-loop).
