Very easy but scenic trail. I use this as a return route to the Valley after driving the mostly easy 4-Peaks trail that ends about 10 minutes from the dam where Apache Trail starts.
I would rate this trail very easy. This was a fun trail, but I was expecting a little more adventure. However, it is very scenic and we saw some wildlife. We also encountered another jeep trail called Reavis Trailhead and headed up that as well.
Anyway, this is a good trail for those that are just looking for something easy.
The Apache trail is very scenic/historic and great fun for the family. If you go during the hot summer months, just leave very early so you hit the dirt part of the trail at 5:00 AM so you can finish the Apache Trail before it gets hot. For a great bonus, you can easily combine the nearby Four Peaks Mine trail into your adventure for a fantastic off-road day!
beautiful trail, saw a mountain lion, and lots of birds. accidentily wandered off trail around the back side of a mountain and found a indian pueblo, didnt bring our camera with us and so we are going to have to go back. Very scenic, stock suv would be fine, no boulder climbing involved, no shelf roads, just a relaxing trip with a couple steep gravel inclines. Gravel im guessing is brought out by the miners who originally were in the area 50 years ago.
Easy Trail!! We took my stock SUV on this drive... But what a beautiful drive it is!! Very relaxing, great views, quaint towns along the way. I would totally recommend it!
