Nestled in a group of interesting side trails on the eastern portion of the vast Coconino National Forest, FR 513C cuts through a deep Ponderosa pine forest. Free-range cattle graze the area in summer. But elk, deer, turkeys, and the occasional black bear also call this forest home. Hancock Tank and several other dammed drainages along the way hold water for all the creatures of the forest. While not far off the pavement, campers and adventurists often overlook this area. FR 513C makes for an fun little drive with fine scenery and enough challenge to hold your interest and make your passenger reach for the grab handle now and then. Combined with the other similar trails nearby, this little gem can be part of a very enjoyable afternoon on the trails without the usual weekend crowds.
