This short trail climbs up the twisting road to the Apache Maid Fire Lookout in the Coconino National Forest. The trail, maintained by the forest service as access for the tower, is normally slightly rutted but is generally suitable for high-clearance vehicles. Special Attractions: Panoramic 360-degree views from the Apache Maid Fire Lookout; Connects with other 4WD trails within the Coconino National Forest. 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.
