Trail Information

Highlights

Deep in the heart of the Mazatzal wilderness is a trail full of Saguaro fields, washes, and great camp sites. If this trail sounds like fun to you, then you need to head up to Four Peaks and check out Forest Road 11. While it doesn't offer the most jaw-dropping views, it does offer seclusion and plenty of intersecting trails to entertain your inner explorer.

Arizona National Forests and State Lands are back open for travel. There are still some very important fire restrictions in place. These restrictions can often change by specific areas.

Tonto National Forest officials will close the state’s largest national forest due to ongoing extreme fire danger beginning at 8 a.m. on Friday, June 25. The forest is implementing this forest closure as a precaution to protect the health and safety of the public, employees and firefighters by reducing the risk of human-caused fires. No one is allowed in the closure area, including Forest Service personnel, unless they are responding to a wildfire or other emergency or patrolling to ensure enforcement of the closure. The order shall remain in effect until July 31, 2021 or until rescinded, whichever occurs first. Residents or businesses using roads in the restricted area to the extent necessary to access their private property are exempt.

The #TontoNF will be terminating the Bush Post Fire Flooding Public Safety Closure Order effective Friday, Feb. 5, 2021, at 8 a.m. In mid-June of last year, the Bush Fire scorched almost 200,000 acres on the Mesa and Tonto Basin Ranger Districts in the Four Peaks Area. Following the fire, a Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) team conducted assessments to identify impacts and recommend actions for mitigating risk in and around the burned area.

Still closed, presumably because of fire damage and flood danger

The Bush Fire is burning around and through the Four Peaks region. The trail will remain closed for a while. I have attached a link to the Bush Fire Incident Site that has more details about the fire. https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/article/6773/51960/
