North Woodpecker Trail connects from the northeast end of the Woodpecker Trail to the south end of the Highway to Hell trail. It is a great connector to use if you do not want to backtrack the Woodpecker Trail and you don't want to do Highway to Hell. The road has a couple of optional minor rock-crawling spots that may require something more than a stock 4x4. There is a memorial at the south end of North Woodpecker Trail where it connects to Highway to Hell. This trail has amazing views of the eastern section of the Middle Gila Canyon. Interestingly the trail is almost completely on BLM land, with a little section right in the middle that shows it is private land owned by the AZ State Assoc of 4 Wheel Drive Club, Inc. No camping was observed.
