Trail Overview

Cherry Cutoff is a wide and beautiful trail that cuts across the boulder-speckled countryside of the Prescott National Forest. Wide enough to turn around in most places, this road is peppered with the marks and ruts of erosion and water runoff, heavier on the Eastern side of the trail. There are no obstacles on this trail over 12", but do take care, as the ruts and occasional sneaky rock might jump out at you if you're not paying attention. There is a water crossing on this trail, with a steep entrance, so high clearance is recommended. There are a couple of small sporadic campsites toward the Eastern edge of this trail as well.

Difficulty

Uneven, rutted dirt trail with potential for loose rocks and sandy washes. Water crossings less than a foot deep. Potential for mud holes and trail obstacles up to 12", including ledges and short, steep grades. Roads are typically one vehicle wide with places to pass.
