- There are great views from both points of Crazy Jug Canyon, Tapeats Amphitheater, Steamboat Mountain and Great Thumb Mesa. FR 425 is a sparsely traveled, primitive road through a valley of oak, aspen and Ponderosa stands. Interspersed among those stands area a number of sunny, upland meadows and several excellent campsites. This is an excellent place to see deer, eagles and coyotes as well as all of those smaller but just as interesting critters that frequent these habitats. Near Big Saddle point there is a large stock corral and FR 292 heads south to Crazy Jug point. The ride here is uphill and washboard, but the view will make you forget the effort. A number of loop rides are possible off the main route using different combinations of roads.
