Primarily a 4x4 playground, this area has numerous rocky desert trails with some great scenery. A gate combination code and a permit is required to access the area, which can be obtained online or in person from the Tonto National Forest. The permit is free but you will need to provide a driver's license or some other valid form of identification. Still, the process is quite simple and only takes a few minutes.
