History
See label

Hike
The trail is surrounded by a beautiful mixed conifer forest. Edward Abbey (1927-1989) an environmental writer, worked for two seasons as a lookout at Aztec Peak and made reference to it in one of his books.

Abbey's Way leaves Workman Creek Road (FR 487) to the northeast and heads towards a mountain meadow, which was part of an old homestead ~1914 to 1939, Peterson Ranch (Glars Pete Peterson). The trail then climbs directly up the pine and Douglas fir-covered slopes of Aztec Peak towards the lookout tower. The trail wraps around the peak and meets FR 487 just east of the top of the peak.

FR487 Gate
Typically closed December 1th thru April 1st. Check with Tonto FS.
