Pleasant Valley District
This trail system is located east of Payson near the Mogollon Rim, surrounding Young, AZ. This is a remote area. Lots of trails in the area make this ranger district a summertime favorite.
Cave Creek District
Trail 42 (Telegraph Trail) follows an old telegraph line. If you look closely, you can still see many of the original telegraph line poles. This trail is very scenic and can be very challenging, please allow for extra driving time.
Sunflower mine, this trail has been plagued with bad luck. Fires and monsoons have taken their toll on this road. Hopefully, the latest improvements will keep this trail open for some time to come.
