The General Crook Trail is a designated Arizona State Historic Trail running from Fort Verde to Cottonwood Wash on the Mogollon Rim. The trail follows a route created by General George Crook in the 1870's.
Although the net change in elevation is not very great, there are a lot of short and steep sections on this trail. Geology buffs may notice the rocks in this area are smooth and rounded. This type of rock is called Mogollon gravel. It was deposited here by some ancient body of water before the Mogollon Rim was lifted to its present place.
Directions: From Lewis Canyon Campground, From the trailhead kiosk at the west end of the campground, follow the trail west past the intersection for Juniper Ridge Trail. To access the trail around its midpoint, continue on State Highway 260 past the Pinedale turnoff for about 2 miles. Turn left onto Forest Road 132. After driving approximately 3.5 miles, look for blue diamonds on either side of the road.
