Hero: Vernon McNary Road
small-sr Icon
The Vernon McNary Road connects the small Fort Apache Native Lands hamlet of McNary on Highway 260 with the small village of Vernon near Highway 60. The southern five miles of the road are on Fort Apache Tribal Lands. Please stay on the road through this area. The road then traverses the Sitgreaves National Forest before crossing private land towards its northern end. The road starts in a dense pine forest, transitions to a juniper and pinion forest, and eventually crosses open grasslands. Los Burros Campground lies approximately 7 miles from the southern end of the road on the edge of an alpine meadow. The free campground has numerous sites and a vault toilet. The campground is on the site of the historic Los Burros Ranger Cabin, still standing proudly today. There are plenty of dispersed campsites along the road's many spur trails.
