Hero: Nelson
small-sr Icon
Set in the Sitgreaves National Forest, Nelson runs north off Highway 260 to join Heber Wildcat. The road is well-maintained dirt until the last two miles, when it becomes narrow, a bit rocky, and has a few mud holes. Two-wheel drive is adequate for the rougher section if it hasn't rained a great deal. There is abundant dispersed camping. Most campsites can accommodate multiple rigs of any size, tent camping, and hammocks. There is a game water catchment along the trail. Never camp within a quarter-mile of game water sources. An old corral reminds you that area is the setting for most of Zane Grey's old western novels.
