Trail Overview
Pyeatt Draw
You can opt out of the most difficult section of this trail by taking the forest road that winds along the wash. An obstacle called "The Filter" causes many drivers to exit at that point. ATVs and UTVs may have a hard time in the wash, but unlicensed vehicles are permitted.
Getting There
From the intersection of Hwys. 87 and 260 in Payson, drive north 1.9 miles on 87 and turn right on Houston-Mesa Road (gas station on this corner). Follow this paved road northeast 4.9 miles and turn right on Pyeatt Draw Road, F.S. 198. Continue on dirt road northeast 4.5 miles to unmarked rocky wash on right.
