Re: Cerro Rd Off of 60 Near Top of the World

@pixelfrog I have not been recently, but have always entered off of 60, just north of the Arboretum. If memory serves.... Happy Camp Rd.(?) through Whitford Canyon - of course you are trying to get over to FR 342. This route is somewhat slippery in rain, but 2WD in dry times. Seems it is about 10 m...

They will be Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Jan. 15), the first day of National Park Week (April 21), National Public Lands Day (Sept. 22) and Veterans Day (Nov. ...

Re: Won the Wave Permit! Please help!!!

Concur about the Buckskin - a do-not-miss highlight. Having spent quite a bit of time out by 'The Wave' I would suggest merely exploring that whole area. Although 'The Wave' gets all the attention, the whole Coyote Buttes North area is awesome and worthwhile in its own right. The teepees area is coo...

Re: Tonto Pass required for Cave Creek TH ??

The FS has a long-standing habit of thumbing their nose at laws they disagree with. Even since they have lost multiple lawsuits (at what cost to the taxpayer?) they continue to extort $ from those using non-conforming parking areas/trail-heads. Of special note is the group of tyrants who were runnin...

Re: Tonto Pass required for Cave Creek TH ??

The Tonto National Forest website lists Cave Creek Trailhead as a picnic area subject to the Tonto Pass requirement. I’ve seen some arguments saying that hikers who simply park and do not utilize any of the amenities (trash cans, bathrooms, etc.) are not subject to the pass requirement. But I would...
