FR10 to FR1356 and Exit on SR88

Four Wheel Drive road through the Goldfield Mountains, north of Apache Junction. Requires a gate pass code obtained from the Mesa Ranger District office. We followed FR10 to FR1356. Followed FR1356 all the way through to SR88 - the Apache Trail. Beautiful scenic desert. Part of the route went through an area of desert that burned in the summer of 2005. The burned section is near SR88.
Heading Northward on FR1356 Road turns eastward from this point 'Castle Mountain' The Jeep
