Trail Overview

398 is a longer powerline trail in the Tonto National Forest near Camp Creek, Arizona. It's a main route from the west entrance to this OHV area off of North 14th Street and runs east, accessing tons of 4x4 trails before ending at an overlook of the canyon that is Camp Creek. A lot of it is a wide and easy dirt road beneath the powerlines on top of a wide-open mesa, sometimes on a rim overlooking the valley below. But it also has to go up and down a bunch of small hills to follow the powerline route. The small hills are often rutted and covered in loose rocks with washouts on the side of the trail to watch out for, which adds some difficulty. Although probably mostly taken to access other trails, it does have pretty cool views above the valley.
