This easy trail follows the broad valleys of Tonto Wash and Long Canyon, passing close to Tonto Mountain. The majority of the trail lies within Prescott National Forest; the rest passes through the open ranchland of Arizona’s cattle country. Special Attractions: Pleasant, easy trail that crosses through ranchland and Prescott National Forest; Views of Granite Mountain. High-clearance vehicles are preferred, but not necessary. This trail is dirt roads, but may have rocks, grades, water crossings, or ruts that make clearance a concern in a normal passenger vehicle. The trail is fairly wide, so that passing is possible at almost any point along the trail. Mud is not a concern under normal weather conditions.
