Gorgeous high mountain views on a clear day. Although the road is wide, it is great fun to ride. Optional difficult side trip on 422A leads to a circle of giant boulders, a great camping spot. Numerous Indian grinding holes in the rock are an indication that this was probably an historic Hohokam Indian site. To extend trip on easy terrain, consider riding down the east side on El Oso Road. It continues an additional 9 miles to Hwy. 188. Make sure you have plenty of gas. You’ll follow a wide gravel road as it climbs gently across Sonoran desert. Gradually, as you approach the peaks, the road begins to narrow and climbs more steeply. The best views occur after about 15 miles, before you reach the top. After Waypoint 04, you’ll head north following a high scenic ridge.

Nice easy scenic trail with only one or two spots crawling over loose rocks up to perhaps 6-10" across so most stock 4X4s should be fine. I've done the trail twice in the last two years. I enter at the Rolls and exit by Roosevelt Lake rather than further north.
