Silver King, FR 229, travels north from Superior along shelf roads and through a small canyon with great views. The easy road is graded dirt until passing a cattle corral and old windmill, where it swings east into the Silver King Wash canyon. The track gets narrower and rougher until it terminates at a Y intersection. FR 2447 runs left and north. The right leg of the Y goes onto private land and is blocked within a few hundred yards with little room to turn around.

The trail provides good mountain views with hillsides that feature a large variety of cacti. Wildflowers dot the landscape in Spring.

Two large campsites suitable for RVs sit near the trailhead but right on the road. One small hunter's camp exists inside the small canyon. Silver King is not a good road for camping. See the connecting Mattie's Grave for better camping options.
