Built in 1868 as a military road. The road was so rough and it's grade so steep that it required at least two teams to a loaded wagon through the pass and exceptional brake power to take it down.
No description yet - feel free to submit one. Here's what I've figured
out so far...
This is listed as a route by Scott Deuty in his book "The Four Wheel
Drive Trails of Arizona - Volume 1" Which BTW you won't find on Amazon or
such. It may be available at REI. When I got the book a year ago
from their website it took THREE months to receive! Obviously I won't be
pluggin' that website...lol!
Trail data listed is out and back from the junction in Ram Valley. It's
about a 2.5 mile drive from SR87 (Beeline Highway) on FR22 which is part of the
AZT. I'm not sure on the road conditions to the Ram Valley junction.
I'd recommend four-wheel drive if you're unsure yourself. Park and hike left
from the junction. The right fork is a continuation of the AZT thru
Boulder Creek Trail up to FR422. Which continues on towards well known
Lone Pine Saddle about 15 miles away from Ram Valley.
