A TASTE OF THE OLD WEST

Long before railroads and highways reached Northern Arizona, rutted dirt tracks like the Stage Station Loop south of Williams provided kidney-jarring travel corridors. The 8-mile loop that passes by rustic corrals and the disintegrated stage station is now the domain of outdoor recreationists.

Getting There: From Railroad Road and Fourth Street in downtown Williams, go 6. miles south on Fourth Street (Fourth Street will turn into Perkinsville Road/County Road 73) to Forest Road 108. Turn right and go 8.3 miles to the east trailhead or 9.5 miles to the “official” west trailhead.

Forest Roads are good gravel/dirt suitable for passenger vehicles.

Length: 8-mile loop

Rating: moderate

Kid Friendly: NO

Pet Friendly: NO

Elevation: 6,200-6,700 feet

Best Season: April-October
