Four Peaks Mountain Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The first part of the trail is well used because its smooth, gravelly surface attracts a lot of winter visitors in RVs. Consequently, there are many turnouts, small side trails, and areas used for RV parking in the first couple of miles. The route directions only list the major tracks to the left and right for the first few miles as new small tracks appear all the time. Remain on the main trail.
Special Attractions: Rockhounding for jasper and hematite; Four Peaks Mountain and Plomosa Range scenery; Access to a network of 4WD trails; Many sand dunes to cross at the lower end of the trail. High-clearance 4WDs are recommended, though most stock SUVs are acceptable. Expect a rough road surface with rocks larger than 6 inches, but there will be a reasonable driving line available. Patches of mud are possible but can be readily negotiated; sand may be deep and require lower tire pressures. There may be stream crossings up to 12 inches deep, substantial sections of single-lane shelf road, moderate grades, and sections of moderately loose road surface."
