The vast 2.9 million acres of the Tonto National Forest provide many opportunities to experience everything from the desert floor to mountain peaks over 7,000 feet. Whether you want to run the full Montana Mountain Loop in your offroad vehicle or head to the Superstition Wilderness's vast network of hiking trails, Rogers Trough helps you fully experience all the Tonto offers.

Connecting Rogers Trough with Hewitt Canyon Trail and Happy Camp Road creates the Montana Mountain Loop OHV route. The loop has sandy washes, deep canyons, and a shelf road with vast views of the valley below. Wrapping around the 5,528-foot Montana Mountain on a narrow rocky trail leads to multiple dispersed camping opportunities before returning to the desert floor through an array of tight turning switchbacks.

For the hiking enthusiast, Rogers Trough Trailhead at the end of the trail provides access to the Arizona Trail, Grand Enchantment Trail, West Pinto Trail #212, and Reavis Ranch Trail #109. Hiking north from the trailhead takes you deep into the 160,000-acre Superstition Wilderness, where, if you're lucky, you may come across the famed Lost Dutchman Gold Mine.
