Trail Overview

This Jeep trail is 50 miles, including the road up to and down from Pinal Peak and the one out to Madera Peak.This series of easy, scenic roads will take you from Pinto Mine Road on US 60 to the summit of Pinal Peak, out to Madera Peak for some nice overlooks then down into Globe. The very southwest section of the road is eroding and may reach moderate difficulty soon. The main trail reaches 6,000' elevation and Pinal Peak is almost 8,000. The road to the peak is frequently impassible in the winter but is a nice cool drive other times of the year.

Great trail. A little bit of almost all types of terrain. Paved road out was closed/blocked on the east side but you can get out or gain access from the east end of the same road. There are a couple areas the roads are pretty washed out, so keep an eye out. We will definitely be back.

Some pretty rocky areas Fording light stream alot More technical than a full beginner trail IMO Rode up to the top of pinal peak Guess my atv was a bit topheavy and was a bit too aggressive with a sideways part of the trail Flipped it sideways, barely managed to unflip with 3 small ratchets…. Bringing the big one and rope next time Overall really beautiful trail though Not an abundance of great camping spots really…. Top of pinal peak is awesome but was still really cold this time of the year… very snowy and wet, would have been alot of work to get a good fire going to warm up
