Slide Show

Sunday, 16 February 2014


We headed back to Picket Post Mountain after our month was up at Goldfield Ghost Town.  Picket Post is on the way to Globe AZ off of Hwy 60 just before Superior AZ. If you go past the Arboretum you have gone too far. Going up Hwy 60 towards Superior you will see you first Forest Fire Alert sign at the second Fire sign the lane on the right closes the turn and brown trail head sign is there. Comes up fast after the second fire sign.

GPS 33.269295, -111.182031
When heading east on 60 look for Fire Hazard sign on the right then the right line ends and the Picket Post turn is next.

Once you take the turn in go past cattle corrals and windmill you will come to a T turn left there go up just a short ways and you will see an area (like below) to pull your rigs into camp. You can camp here for up to 14 days. Just remember "Leave no Trace". 

For day rides you can continue to the end of the gravel road to the trail head parking lot. There is a day staging area there for horses with hitching rails.
Our campsite full of Canadians at Picket Post
