Overview

What a great way to get into the heart of Tonto! The trail starts as an easy dirt road that takes you into the forest. This early driving is prone to vast open skies and low trees and brush. As you wind into the forest, the trees overtake the skyline, and the road narrows. Soon the branches will be brushing the dust off your roof and attempting to add custom pinstriping. It crosses several other trails in the area leading to a multitude of adventures! You can work your way into serene forests, high prairies, or desert valleys to the west.
