Drive Warning See Directions details.


Overview A very remote, rugged, and scenic off-trail boundary area of The Tonto National Forest - Salome Wilderness; This area is also an active open range cattle ranching area and in season, thought to be an active game hunting area.

Ranching History: See Google Earth Screen Shots with Detail Captions - Photos 11-13.


Hike All hiking is off-trail and rugged, and rocky, with some dense vegetation to bushwhack through to reach more scenic view areas into: Workman Creek Canyon, Salome Creek Canyon, Park Creek Canyon, Turkey Creek Canyon, Thoroughbred Creek Canyon, and more...
(It should also be noted that hiking in from Park Tank on the continuing FR2752 two-track, it is easy to connect with the official HAZ Hike Guide trail Park McFadden Trail #55 that continued up to McFadden Peak and the Fire Tower)


Water Sources Seasonal Park Creek (with water pooling) which runs parallel with FR2747 is easily accessible from Camp Grasshopper.

    Strictly 4x4

    To car camp trip
    From the PHX Area:
    Hwy 60E to Globe at Hwy 188N; Hwy 188N for 12+ miles to Hwy 288N; Hwy 288N to approx 0.5 miles "past" FR561 (road to McFadden Peak & Fire Tower); With strictly high clearance, 4WD vehicle, and quality off-road tires, look for easy to miss but signed 4WD Vehicle FR2752 (on West side of Hwy 288);

    Please Note: The first .6mls of this very rough, very rocky 4x4 FR2752 travels within a seasonal creek area, so it's not recommended to plan a visit to this very remote area during forecasted heavy rain/wet conditions; See the Hike Guide attached and "official" Gps Driving Route (from Hwy 288 / FR2752) for this 4.9ml one-way driving route to recommended, and unsigned FR2747 off-road, private Camp Grasshopper location at: N33.90577 W111.00514;
