Hero: Heber Mormon Crossing

Heber Mormon Crossing runs 25 miles north from the town of Heber-Overgaard to Highway 99, which goes to Winslow. The trail starts off Highway 260 with a brief paved segment. The portion of the trail in Navajo County is a well-maintained graded road. The maintenance level goes down a bit as you travel north, ending with a short section of unmaintained two-track after the trail departs the Sitgreaves National Forest. A tight hairpin switchback on the north side of the Chevlon Crossing forced a 35-foot restriction on vehicle length. Towing anything beyond a short teardrop-style trailer would be problematic on the hairpin turn. The trail passes through a pine forest before giving way to junipers and grasslands to the north. Effects of the 2021 Wyrick and 2009 Durfee wildfires are evident along the trail. Though the Durfee fire helped bring back the original grassland habitat needed by larger wildlife. The Chevlon Crossing is quite scenic. There free Chevlon Canyon Campground has a pit toilet, tables, and fire rings with grates. Dispersed camping is available via man of the spur trails.
