Overview
The Pleasant Valley Trail is actually an extremely hazardous road that is used by high-clearance, 4-wheel drive vehicles, but it is not recommended for motorized vehicles. The trail follows Limestone Gulch from the San Francisco River road to Pleasant Valley, on the east slope of 6980' Sunset Peak, where it connects with FR 215A. On the right side in Limestone Gulch, in less than a mile, an old rock smelter ruin can be seen.

Note
This is a moderately difficult hike.

    To hike
    From Safford, head east on Highway 70/191. 10 miles from Safford, the highway splits, turn left onto Highway 191 and follow it for another 23.75 miles to a highway junction known as 3-Way (old drive-in movie theater and store). Turn left to remain on Highway 191. From the 3-Way junction, head north on highway 191 for approximately 9.4 miles to milepost 163.9, in the town of Clifton (this point is just after crossing the 2nd railroad track and before the Circle K store). At milepost 163.9, turn right onto Zorilla Street, then make an immediate left onto Frisco Avenue. Frisco Avenue crosses a bridge over the San Francisco River at 0.55 miles, and becomes the San Francisco River Road (unsigned). Follow the San Francisco River Road for another 0.9 miles, to the first canyon on the right, which is Limestone Gulch. There are no trail signs or designated parking areas (You're on your own!).
