FR 71 in the Prescott Nationa Forest is an easy dirt road connecting Highway 89 in the west to County Road 73 and Perkinsville Old 354 Road in the east. The road is sometimes called Drake Road for the large cement plant on its western end. For offroaders, the trail's primary purpose is accessing the southern end of the Kaibab National Forest and its wealth of camping and wheeling opportunities. The trail crosses open prairies before climbing into a pinion and juniper forest. Two small campsites are on opposite sides of a seasonal wash about midway through the trail. While easy in dry conditions, this trail could quickly become impassable with flooded washes and slick roadbeds after heavy rain.
