This smooth backcountry road winds through pine forests on the Mogollon Plateau in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest. The trail is not suitable for vehicles more than 35 feet long because of the winding road and tight curves at Chevelon Crossing. The trail is a well-used, graded gravel road, which can become very washboardy. Chevelon Crossing is a scenic and historic canyon area. Next to the crossing is a U.S. Forest Service campground that was built originally by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. There is water in the canyon year-round. Special Attractions: The deep gorge of Chevelon Canyon; Access to many backcountry campsites and roads within the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest; Elk may be seen in the area. This trail is graded dirt but suitable for a normal passenger vehicle. It usually has gentle grades, is fairly wide, and has very shallow water crossings (if any).
