Description:

Twenty one air miles northeast of Cave Creek, Arizona, in the Bloody Basin area of the Tonto National Forest, the Verde River makes a Z-shaped bend between two prominent rock out croppings. There, in 1943, Flagstaff Sheep Company, which had been grazing sheep in the area since 1926, constructed a cable suspension bridge to provide safe passage for it's sheep across the river. In 1988, weakened by years of service and floods, the bridge was dismantled. A year later, a new structure of similar design was erected on the site, even though sheep ranching was no longer carried out in the area. It provides hikers, horseback riders, and hunters access into the Mazatzal Wilderness, located a few miles east of the Verde River.

This is a great trail for beginners not looking for too much challenge. The trail is very dusty but it is unlikely you will get scratches or damage to your Rover.

Description:

Smiley Rock trail will leave you smiling as you enter the historic mining town of Jerome and hit the dirt shorty after the fire station. The trail begins as a well maintained road, and gradually builds in difficulty as you gain elevation. Near the end, the last couple of miles provides excellent challenges as you navigate rocky stream beds. Tire placement is critical and rock stacking is expected. Stock vehicles with stock tires should use caution.

The trail is mostly easy/moderate but there is a 1/4mile rock garden towards the end which may require spotting for some.

The trail is located just outside Jerome, AZ which is about 90 miles from Phoenix.



Features: Allow plenty of time to see historic Jerome. The town is a major tourist attraction offering an array of quaint gift shops, art galleries, museums and restaurants. If you’re into mining history, plan a stop at the Gold King Mine and Ghost Town along the route or take a short side trip to Jerome State Historic Park. Both of these attractions require a small fee. Once in the backcountry, you’ll enjoy your secluded adventure through Martin Canyon, which follows the southern border of the Woodchute Wilderness. Hike and camp at various points along the way. Some of this trail is officially part of the Great Western Trail. This rating applies to the portion of the trip through Martin Canyon which is narrow and rocky. Skid plates and good articulation are recommended. Brush is tight in several places. Much of the route is an easy gravel road.
