The Crook Road begins at this point with the first in a series of mile markers across the Mogollon Rim segment of the military supply trail connecting Forts Whipple, Verde and Apache. Reconnoitered in 1871 by General George Crook with a small detachment of cavalry, the route was 100 miles shorter than earlier trails and opened the rugged Rim country to tactical operations. The Boy Scouts of America, Grand Canyon Council, re-marked the road in 1975-76 as a Bicentennial project. In 1978 it was designated Arizona's first Historic Trail.
