Trail Overview

This road often dances between ponderosa pine groves, and expansive alpine meadows, called parks by the locals. Sheep Springs Road traverses three large parks; Tie, Brolliar, and Long. Along this road you might encounter elk, mule deer, and pronghorns. Don't be surprised if you see hikers in the woods, as this trail crosses the historic Arizona National Scenic Hiking Trail.
