Trail Information

Highlights

If you are a weekend explorer or want an area that can serve as a short expedition run, you've come to the right trail. East Pocket Road by itself is not terribly exciting, especially at the north end. However, it provides access to many incredible destinations, including the Mogollon Rim. Here you can find breathtaking views of the red rocks of Dedona and the northern Verde Valley below. One particular spot, known as the Edge of the World, has awesome dispersed primitive campsites. At the very end of the road, you'll find the East Pocket Lookout Tower, requiring a half-mile hike to see the tower and the incredible views.

The only reason to deflate are the washboards! Initially, it will feel bone jarring, once past Roger’s Lake, it appears they **** down some gravel to smoothen the ride. Very deserted on Sunday afternoons, with only a couple other fellow campers nearby, we felt as if we had the entire area to ourselves.

Easy trail. Washboards will shake you down but the views at the end along with the camping well worth the drive.

The views at waypoint 30 make this trail worth it alone. It’s incredibly beautiful. It’s a super easy trail.
