    High Clearance possible when dry

    To hike
    From the Phoenix Area: Take Hwy 60 (Superstition Freeway) east 75 miles to Globe/Miami. Turn left (northwest) onto Hwy 188 (GPS coordinates 33o 24.959'N, 110o 49.741'W) and drive 14 ½ miles to intersection with Hwy 288 (GPS coordinates 33o 33.920'N, 110o 57.210'W). Take Hwy 288 Scenic Byway towards Young. In about 4 ½ miles you will cross the Salt River Bridge (GPS coordinates 33o 37.155'N, 110o 55.310'W). Continue along Hwy 288 passing by FR203, also known as Cherry Creek Road (GPS coordinates 33o 38.582'N, 110o 57.104'W) and FR60, also known as A-Cross Road (GPS coordinates 33o 42.795'N, 110o 58.690'W). Hwy 288 will soon gain considerable elevation heading in a general easterly direction leaving Lake Roosevelt at your back. At a hairpin curve bending to the north, look for the unsigned Right Turn junction with FR189 approx 100 yards past milepost MP273 (GPS coordinates 33o 43.952'N, 110o 57.309'W). Scenic FR189 dips immediately into a wash and heads towards the east. A high clearance vehicle is required to negotiate FR189 if dry and 4wd required if recent rain/snow. In 4.8 miles you will reach the Oak Creek TH (Parking & Trail Start for Trails- Coon Crk#254 & Coon Sprgs#124) located near an abandoned cabin and corral (GPS coordinates 33o 45.524'N, 110o 54.806'W).
