I saw a triplog from @CannondaleKid the other day from his hike to the Mazzie Swingset, and it had been over 2 1/2 years since I had been to the swingset, so I decided to go back out there. I didn't want to drive all the way out there just to hike to the swingset, so I also drove to the end of FR 201 and hiked up to Mount Peeley.

Mount Peeley
This is the 3rd time that I have been up to Mount Peeley, and it is always an enjoyable hike. I did Mount Peeley first, and FR 201 was in good shape all the way to the end. It is narrow in lots of places, and I was glad that I did not meet any oncoming traffic on the drive.

The Mazatzal Divide Trail was a bit overgrown -- it wasn't bad, but it could stand to be trimmed. It was a bit breezy at the summit, which made it feel a bit cold; we managed, to find some rocks to sit behind and get out of most of the wind. Views are great up there, so it is an enjoyable summit.

Mazzie Swingset
After hiking Mount Peeley, we drove back on FR 201 to FR 191 and parked. We hiked along FR 191 and made our way to the swingset. As @CannondaleKid mentioned, there were some new seats on the swingset. I am not sure about the history of the swingset, but it is not something that you expect to see in a wilderness.

Synopsis
These 2 hikes were very enjoyable on a nice fall day!

Distance and elevation gain for the 2 hikes are below. Stats above are the sum of the two.
Mount Peeley: 5.28 miles with 1,501 feet of AEG
