Trail Information

Highlights

The Rolls OHV Area is located just outside the Phoenix Valley, in Tonto National Forest, and covers 27,000 acres. It features 65 miles of varied-width trails, offering breathtaking views and hiking trails around the Four Peaks, along with camping, fishing, and water sports at the back coves of Saguaro Lake.

The trails in the area cover a wide range of terrain, including deep sandy washes, hard-packed dirt, loose rock, and steep bedrock climbs. Most can be enjoyed by high clearance, stock 4x4 vehicles. However, there are a few more challenging spots, primarily on the eastern edge of the Rolls, that would require a more modified vehicle.

Easy trail that will test the reflexes of your suspension depending on your speed. Hit this trail after some rain and you can splash around in the puddles. Usually take this trail on my way down to the Saguaro Lake coves by connecting FR1343, FR13, FR1813, & FR1814 or FR1830.

Difficulty Accuracy: Spot On

Rating 3 stars just because this isn't all that technically challenging (as long as you pay attention), but is pretty bumpy. And there are lots of other (much easier) drives in the area that have much better scenery (e.g. the Florence Kelvin "Highway"). Difficulty rating is spot on. No problems even in a stock 4x4 as long as you take a careful line.

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.

Temporary Closure
Visited: 06/25/2021

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 The order shall remain in effect until July 31, 2021 or until rescinded, whichever occurs first.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.
