Beautiful Sonoran Desert overlooking Bartlett Reservoir and the Verde River. Camp and fish at the reservoir. This road was once a service road for a telegraph line. Look carefully along the trail for wooden stumps, remnants of old telegraph poles. A popular ATV and dirt bike area. Please stay on existing trails at all times to avoid further erosion. Difficult. Undulating sandy terrain with extreme washouts. Use caution to avoid rollovers. Lockers recommended.
