Trail Overview

This trail starts a couple miles East of Camp Verde off highway 260, and follows Cedar Flats Rd (FSR 214) to the Apache Maid lookout tower. The first 11 miles are on a mild and well graded dirt road, as long as there hasn't been any recent rain would be suitable for any stock SUV. Once the trail passes Twin Buttes Tank, it immediately becomes very rocky and has a few steep sections. High clearance and suitable tires are highly recommended. There are some excellent opportunities for dispersed camping along the entire route, as well as multiple side trails that can extend your adventure. Please remember to leave any gates you encounter in the same condition that you find them in.

The last 20 miles of the trail are very rocky and uneven. Two sections require you to climb up and over rock ledges approximately 30" tall.
