This was definitely a fun jeep trail. It's located around Payson and just north of Payson up ST RT 87. This goes along some great scenery in the beginning, but towards the middle of the trail starts to turn into some tough rocky climbs and descents, and then down into some shrubby areas along the way. However, I would definitely make sure that you way have a 4x4 with skid plates or you will tear your vehicle up. Towards the end of the trail you have to cross into a small river and then drive straight ahead into the river for about a 100 feet. After this spot it's easy once you come up on the farm down the trail. The trail then continues all the way straight into downtown Payson. I will say that out of all the moderate trails I've been on this had some of the hardest spots.
