High Clearance possible when dry
From Phoenix, take I-17 North to exit 236. Turn East (right) onto Table Mesa Road/FR41. At 1 mile you will pass the Tee Ranch, there are actually 2 ranches on the right side, stay left on FR41. At the second ranch, you need to get out of your vehicle, open the gate, drive through, and close it behind you. The next mile or so is relatively flat and easily passable in a car, the last 2-3 miles require a high clearance vehicle, as you cross a very small stream and the road becomes much rougher. There are several small turnoffs where you can park and just add a little milage to the hike. About 4.25 miles from I-17, you will cross a cattle guard with a small corral and a Tonto National Forest sign on your right. There is a small clearing to park here.

The "very small stream" crossing is the New River wash, which flooded with an enormous flow in the Winter of 2009-10. It now will require very high clearance. I did it in my Toyota tundra, and put a big dent in my front skid plate. Most cross this wash in a rhino or short wheel based vehicle like a FJ cruiser or Jeep.
