Trail Information


FR 935 winds through old-growth pine forests, crosses alpine meadows and passes through ranch land still worked by cowhands on sure-footed ponies. After you leave the pavement be sure to close the gate behind you. The trail immediately crosses a wide-open meadow with spacious campsites on both sides. The trail winds along the contours of this rugged landscape mostly smoothly but occasionally forcing you to choose a line to bypass protruding boulders. Often cows and calves are laying in the shade and watch idly as you roll by. Several small spur trails go off at angles along the way, so pay attention to the guide unless you are in the mood for some more exploring. Though in this beautiful country, side trips are often good trips. Before long FR 935 deposits you onto

Stoneman Lake Road

, a good route to other adventures in the area.

For an area of Arizona with roads that are well maintained, this trail made a fun little side trip. All the mud holes all have work a rounds ... one even had a triple layer of work a rounds! Earlier in the day, on another trail, we saw a herd of around a couple dozen elk, and they absolutely were not afraid of us. They grazed around about 200 feet from us. On this trail we saw two different herds of elk ... the first group took off as soon as they could see us. The second group were shadows moving through the trees. Look closely at the second picture and you'll see the only elk we could capture in a picture.

Out here to test out a bone stock GX470 and I can say I rather enjoyed this road. Spent 2 hours hanging out and didn’t see a soul!! Really good campsites too! Small rocky cobble and some mud. Wishing I had some all terrain tires and aired down but really a super easy and simple toad.

Enjoyed the great campsite on the edge of the meadow. The relaxing wind in the pines always makes my blood pressure drop. Fun little trail to drive.
