Attention: This trail system is primarily for off-road vehicles (OHVs). The system contains miles of OHV trails and 51 miles of dual-use roads. A trail is defined as a way for foot, stock, or trail vehicle traffic. A dual-use road can be used by both full-sized vehicles and OHVs. Take plenty of water. This OHV area was developed with the help of the Arizona State Parks OHV Recreation Fund.
Multiuse: Popular horseback area.
Mountain biking on FR 136, The General Crook Nat. Recreation Trail from FR 574, scenic, fun, then gets very steep 5 miles in. Do 13-mile loop using TR 513, TR 511 and FR 574 (run counterclockwise). Loop is rated moderate to most difficult due to 1,000-foot elevation change.
Conditions: High-clearance okay on most forest roads. Do not use during or after bad weather. Trails are suitable for intermediate and expert riders.
Restrictions: Trails are open to vehicles less than 50" wide. Dual-use roads open to large OHVs. Wet weather restrictions apply. Muffler and spark arrestors a must.
Camping: See Prescott National Forest Campgrounds
