Cutthroat Campground Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Rolling, grassy hills bordered by pines and a wide, blue sky welcome you as you drive windy AZ 261 on the way to Big Lake Recreation Area. The green is a welcome sight for dry eyes used to the desert dust and thirsting for moisture.
This is roll-the-car-window-down country, so turn off the air conditioner and let the delightfully brisk summer air whip through your hair. High in the White Mountains in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest, 450-acre Big Lake and its smaller sibling, 100-acre Crescent Lake, await with tantalizing cool, blue water."
