Except for the moderate but sustained climb at the start, this is an easy ride to an alpine meadow with great wildflowers in early summer. The climb can be avoided by driving the first 2.7 miles. Junction with FR 9016 and the end of the ride at the west end of Fry Park. You can hide your bike or lock it to a tree anywhere along the last mile of the ride, and hike north to explore the park. It’s especially fine after a wet spring when the wildflowers are blooming.

Definitely drive up the first couple of miles to save the effort up the hills and switchbacks. There are a number of side trips (spurs) that you can take here where you might be able to peer down on Oak Creek Canyon if it not were for the thick trees. Fry Park is quite awesome with views of the San Francisco peaks in the distance. I encountered some car traffic (4 or five cars/trucks). A GPS is recommended since FS roads are either not marked or their signs have been vandalized and removed.
