Ed, it is about 10 miles north of Lake pleasant. Sort of like you were taking the back way to Crown King, but instead you head west to Morristown. It is a very pleasant ride for the most part. A little challanging in the river bottom, but not too bad. Maybe a five or six on a scale of ten. I'd rate the back way to Crown King closer to 8 or even 9 for just a few short but challenging sections.
