Bloody Basin Road (FR269)

Bloody Basin Road (FR269) connects Interstate 17 and Seven Springs Road (FR24), and continues east to Sheep's Bridge, a popular destination. It has several routes coming off of it as well. It is regularly maintained between I-17 and FR24, but east of there its character changes significantly, becoming quite rough. Even that section is usually easily manageable in a stock 4x4 vehicle though.
