Hero: 9512E

Running parallel to the steep dropoff of the Mogollon Rim, 9512E has dozens of campsites for those seeking escape from the desert’s summer heat among the shady Ponderosa pines. The views southward across central Arizona are inspiring. The largest sites sit at the eastern end near the Young Highway. This area can support very large RV and trailer groups. The sites westward grow smaller but more private, with several still large enough for an RV or full-size camping trailer. The trail ends at a lollipop turnaround with several small rocky campsites with unbeatable views.

The existing trail is poorly depicted on maps but very obvious when driving. The trail is rutted with minor potholes. Be prepared to clear downed pines blocking the trail early in the season.
