Growing up, everyone had a friend that was a bit short, rugged, rough and tumble, not that great to look at, but fun to be around. If that friend was a trail, he'd be FR 228. Beginning near the beautiful Casner Park, the trail immediately takes you into the belly of the Coconino Forest. That means pine trees, cattle tanks, rocky roads, and drift fences in the middle of nowhere. You aren't that far from civilization, but as Jeremiah Johnson famously said, it "feels like far." You'd be no more surprised to see a grizzled cowboy on his horse with his cattle dog trailing along behind than an OHV coming around the next curve with the sound system cranking a billion decibels. The past and the present aren't that far apart in this land. Go see what you can find on this short, rugged trail.
