Picket post is just before Superior AZ in Tonto National Forest. If you head east on Hwy 60 coming out of Apache Junction just before Superior you will see first a "Forest fire alert" sign the right lane will end and you will see the brown trail head sign for "Picket Post" turn right. You will then drive in until you come to the "T", at the "T" you turn left drive just up a little ways and you will see an area that even the biggest trailers can pull in and park on the left side.
