Four Peaks Mine

Four Peaks Mine Professional Review and Guide

"Very popular mountain drive with several great hiking trails. Dispersed camping allowed. Make sure to pack out all trash. Heavily used ATV and dirt bike area. Stay on roads and trails at all times. Graded dirt road but washed out and rutted in places. High clearance recommended. Four-wheel drive beneficial. Small stream crossings possible. Snow likely at top late fall and winter."

Absolutely one of my favorite trails in the area. Very easy although I'd still recommend 4WD. Trail offers great views of Fountain Hills and the valley in the background. Also some of the best sunsets in Arizona. Camp spots about every 5-10 minutes along the trail.

Good trail. Not difficult and can be done in almost any vehicle with decent clearance. Didn't use 4wd the entire trip, but some great views and good hiking areas. Difficulty level 2.

This is the first trail that I have been on since I moved to Arizona. I have a 2004 LJ. I took my wife and 2 little girls, and had a blast! Very moderate and smooth in most areas. Great views. We saw some wild horses at the top. Great place to pack a picnic!

This trail is a great choice to break-in your new 4X4. The trail is easy, but still, be careful. Leave early on the weekends or holidays to beat the crowds. I took my kids up in my new Jeep Wrangler with the top off and we had a blast. At the parking area near the top, we hiked some of the peaks trails. After that, we followed the road down the other-side to Roosevelt lake and then came back via the Apache Trail. Lots of fantastic views, so bring a camera. Also, lots of wildlife so be looking. A super-fun day in the outdoors!

Trail was very crowded and there were a lot of people shooting guns close to the trail. Probably won't have to turn 4wd on and can make the trip with a stock suv or pickup truck. Some sedans had to turn around because they couldn't make it. Great scenery and overall a good time.

I've driven this trail several different times and have enjoyed it. Bring a camera and pack a lunch ... so much to see and do on this trail. Trail rated Easy to slightly rough (rocky in the middle). Make sure you leave early because this trail is very busy on the weekend.

This trail offers fun for the whole family. At the end of the trail, is a great hiking area which offers spectacular views. There are several off-shoots for the more serious four-wheeler. Very easy trail, cars can navigate it to get to the hiking area. Heavily populated with ATVs/Dune Buggys/Dirt Bikes, lots of sharp drop-offs and sharp curves, so be careful and watch your speed.
