Pakoon Basin (Northern Section) - Lime Kiln Pass - Black Rock and Mud Mountain

This page describes roads in the northwest portion of the monument in the upper Pakoon Basin from Whitney Pass north to Black Rock Mountain. Roads are listed in numerical order, not by routes. Use this guide with the BLM Arizona Strip Visitor Map. All roads in this area should be explored with a high clearance four wheel drive vehicle with all-terrain tires in good condition. Some roads are only suitable for UTVs and specially modified short wheelbase 4x4s.

This is not a complete guide to all roads in this area. This list is made primarily of the numbered roads on the BLM map that are used by the recreating public frequently. For all other roads assume they are for specially modified short wheelbase 4x4s. Some are only for UTVs. Always turn around if it gets too rough for your vehicle.
