Likely In-Season!
History: 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.

    To hike
    From Phoenix head out on the Beeline / SR87 north to Sunflower. Just north of Sunflower off SR87 between milepost 218 & 219. Turn left onto the signed turnoff for Bushnell Tanks. Follow 0.1 mile and hang a right onto FR22. Continue on FR22 for about another 2.4 miles to Ram Valley... unsure at this time...
