Written Directions

Note: on the eastern end of this road, Three Forks Road is also referred to as National Forest road 249 and starts 1.8 miles north of Alpine. The road travels to intersect with AZ Rt 273 and Rt 261.

Scenery

This is newly paved, two lane National Forest road that traverses a section of the National Forest damaged by a forest fire in 2011. The road provides a rare glimpse into the devastation of a wide ranging forest fire and the subsequent rebirth of a forest.

Numerous scorched, yet still live, trees interspersed among thousands of acres of fire ravaged and dead trees.

Road Quality

Lots of twisties as it winds it's way along a forest stream. The pavement is perfect as it was newly paved after the forest fire.

Roadside Amenities

Road side amenities are non-existent. A few camping pull offs dot the road but no paved areas exist off the highway.

Additional Info

This is a seasonal road and is closed during the winter. Major mapping services still show the road as dirt/gravel.

This is one of my favorite rides to see the fall colors in eastern Arizona. I've been visiting this area since I was a small child and love the new pavement on FR 249. Followed up the ride with lunch at the Bear Wallow Café in Alpine.
