Jerome-Perkinsville Road Professional Review and Guide
"This graded dirt road travels through fascinating scenery between Perkinsville and the former ghost town of Jerome. The trail travels on ridge tops and on a section of the old United Verde & Pacific Railroad grade as it makes its final descent into Jerome. The trail, which also forms part of the Great Western Trail, is roughly graded along its length, although a few rough spots make it more suitable for high-clearance vehicles.
Special Attractions: Many varied views, including the Woodchute Wilderness, Jerome, and the Verde Valley; Route follows a section of the historic United Verde & Pacific Railroad; Rockhounding for Perkinsville agate. High-clearance vehicles are preferred, but not necessary. This trail is dirt roads, but may have rocks, grades, water crossings, or ruts that make clearance a concern in a normal passenger vehicle. The trail is fairly wide, so that passing is possible at almost any point along the trail. Mud is not a concern under normal weather conditions."
