Set in the Tonto National Forest, Hewitt Station runs along the southern edge of the Superstition Mountains. A section of private property cuts the road in half. The western portion of the trail is described here.

Hewitt Station, FR 357, is an easy, well-maintained dirt track. After rain, large puddles form on the road. The puddles have hard bottoms. The trail deadends at private property and has little room to turn around. The trail connects to Hewitt Canyon Road and Bomboy Mine. Shooting is popular along this trail, with numerous established ranges on the north side of the track.

Camping is abundant along Hewitt Station. FR 3493 spurs off the trail into a warren of tracks between Comet Peak and the Whitlow Ranch Flood Control Basin. The spur has a plethora of dispersed campsites of all sizes, many with fire rings. A large campsite sits under massive salt cedars towards the trail's east end. The site has several fire rings, shade, and room for up to five vehicles.
