Trail Overview

Russell Tank Road weaves its way gently through the glorious Ponderosa Pines of the Kaibab National Forest on the Coconino Plateau. There are no obstacles over 12" on the pretty single-track dirt road, but there is plenty to see. Elk about in this area and large primitive campsites are sporadically scattered, with evidence of past kills.
