One of the most-visited urban forests in the U.S., with approximately 5.8 million visitors annually, the Tonto National Forest spans almost 3 million acres of diverse terrain just outside of Phoenix, Arizona. Tonto encompasses a wide variety of vegetation ranging from cactus-studded desert to pine-forested mountains, and numerous recreational opportunities throughout the year.
Our four new Trails Illustrated maps are the most detailed and up-to-date for the forest, carefully researched and developed in cooperation with local land managers and agencies. Each map contains easy to read trails, numbered forest service roads, campsites, access points, scenic points-of-interest, and important facilities.
Like all Trails Illustrated maps our new Tonto National Forest titles are both highly durable and environmentally friendly. The four-map pack includes Trails Illustrated maps 850-853 and covers the following areas: Mogollon Rim, Superstition Wilderness, Mazatzal Wilderness, Pine Mountain Wilderness, Four Peaks Wilderness, Hellgate Wilderness, Salome Wilderness, Sierra Ancha Wilderness, Salt River Canyon, Bartlett Lake, Horseshoe Lake, Saguaro Lake, Canyon Lake, Apache Lake, Roosevelt Lake, Verde River, Salt River, The Rolls and Bulldog Canyon ATV areas, and more.
