Description:

Highlights: Very remote location, exceptional vistas, lots of wildlife
Near: Safford, AZ
Distance: 10.78 miles round trip
Elevation Gain: 2942 ft

Summary: This hike takes you to the top of Basset Peak, the highpoint of the Galiuro Mountains. The hike starts out at 5000 ft in elevation. The trail follows Ash Creek to its headwaters at the bottom of a large basin, which is marked by a lone stand of aspen trees. At this point the trail climbs up and out of the steep walled basin. Once you climbed out of the basin and on to the prominent ridgeline you will be at the intersection of the Ash Creek trail, the East Divide Trail, and Basset Peak Trail. Follow Basset Peak Trail for another mile to the summit.

Trailhead: From Tucson take I-10 east to Wilcox. Take exit 340, then follow Fort Grant Road north for about 18 miles to its intersection with Ash Creek Rd. Follow Ash Creek Rd west for about 15 miles. This should place you approximatley at the intersection of Sunset Rd and Ash Creek Rd. If you are in a two wheel drive vehicle this will probably be the start of your hike. Otherwise, continue up Ash Creek Rd another 2.5 miles to the trailhead and parking location. Note that the total hiking distance for this hike is relative to the trailhead. (Lat:32.50678 Lon:-110.23358)

Description:

The back way to Black Canyon City is a BLM off-road 4wd trail that travels parallel to the Black Canyon Trail's hiking network. It's very skinny in spots, being only one vehicle wide in areas where passing cannot be accomplished easily. In other areas, passing most likely will require both vehicles going slightly off the trail while avoiding any cacti plants that could puncture even the toughest rock crawling tires. The southern half is otherwise not difficult as you drive on well-packed dirt through gentle curves and hills. However, further north, especially around Slate River, you'll find larger rocks, looser dirt, tighter turns and steeper hills. There's even a few hundred foot long section of the road that was chiseled out of a steep rocky hill-side. Four-wheel drive is definitely a must, and some spots may even require a locker and/or a traction control system depending on the driver's and the vehicle's capabilities.

Description:

Blazin M Ranch was originally settled as a dairy and cattle ranch in the late 1800s. In 1966 Chuck Mabery purchased the property. After dabbling in cattle, the Mabery family grew and sold organic vegetables. Following the 100-year flood of 1993, most of the cultivated land was washed away. The musically-inclined family turned their talents into a new venue by creating Blazin’ M Chuckwagon Dinner Theater.

The Old West town was constructed in that same year under the direction of Doug Wright, a schoolmate and close family friend of Dan Mabery. Many of the building materials were recycled from Hollywood movie sets that Doug had helped construct.

In 1994 the Ranch opened with a chuckwagon-style dinner and live Western stage show. Most of the original band members have retired but their love of country music and cowboy humor has endured and become a staple of the Ranch.

During the fall of 2010 under the management of Copper Spur LLC, the Ranch underwent an extensive upgrade with upscale merchandise in new shops, additional activities and an enhanced museum. The menu was revived with southwestern signature dishes and the entertainment was updated with new music and cowboy humor.

About Boulders
It’s crazy but I used to be a pizza cook at this location when it was part of a different chain. I remember the fun we had and the great friends I made. We would go rock climbing all day and come in dead tired to work in the evenings. A lot has changed in the last ten years, but not my love of cooking pizza, spending time with pals, or rock climbing. I hope to serve up some great food for all of our guests and provide a place to come hang out and relax. If you have a chance to look around, check out the many pictures of travel and adventure sports. These are just a few of our great passions here. I have tried to include some of the unique foods that my wife and I have encountered in our travels. Have a cold beer and enjoy a great pizza pie!

Boulders is all about the food, craft beer, bike riding, rock climbing and adventure! With 30 draft handles and 70 plus bottles of craft beer. Bring a friend and check out our selection. Park your ride inside (your bicycle, that is) grab a seat at the bar top or take a seat on the patio.

A unique and scenic drive through a narrow, steep-walled canyon. Once in the canyon, there are several moderate-size rocks to get over. Stock SUVs with good ground clearance should be okay. It is a good idea to be spotted through the tough spots. You may bottom out occasionally but damage is unlikely. Stay off this trail if rain is expected, the canyon is extremely dangerous when flooded.

Description:

This trail combines the astounding Sedona beauty with moderate to challenging difficulty. The Red Rock country is the backdrop for this expedition that includes sights named Submarine Rock, Chicken Point, the Roundabout, and Devils Kitchen, with the challenge of slick-rock obstacles.

While relatively short in terms of distance, this trail calls for slow driving due to its tightness and rocky terrain. Many places are challenging because the driver needs to be well aware of their vehicle spatially and how to manage it over slick-rock, so drivers should have some experience.

The stock Range Rover, Discovery (including LR3), and Defender are well equipped to deliver a fantastic day.

Description:

This is such a popular area for four-wheeling that the Tonto National Forest instituted a permit system several years ago. Locked gates bar entry, and the combination you receive with your permit works for six months before the lock is changed.

This is hilly area with enormous boulders that tower as high as the buildings downtown. With the yellow-green lichen growing on them, they look like something from another world. Every time you crest a ridge you're treated to a new vista, and you get some of the best views of the Superstitions, Weaver's Needle and Four Peaks that you've ever seen.

Enormous coveys of quail make their homes here, as do javelina, deer, and hundreds of birds and smaller mammals. In spite of the lengthy drought, springs continue to provide water year-round. Ruins of old mining shacks dot the landscape here, and scattered along the hillsides are piles of stones put there by Spaniards to mark their mining claims.

A permit is required for this trail. It’s easy to obtain and free. Carry it with you at all times. This is a highly sensitive area and subject to closure. The trail passes through scenic Sonoran Desert with views of Goldfield and Superstition Mountains. Several short, steep rocky climbs that require careful tire placement and some driving skill. Suitable for aggressive stock SUVs with high ground clearance. Go with a friend and carry a tow strap.

Description:

Canyon de Chelly was established on April 1, 1931 as a unit of the National Park Service. It is located in northeastern Arizona within the boundaries of the Navajo Nation. It preserves ruins of the early indigenous tribes that lived in the area, including the Ancient Pueblo Peoples (also called Anasazi) and Navajo. The monument covers 83,840 acres (131.0 sq mi; 339.3 km2) and encompasses the floors and rims of the three major canyons: de Chelly, del Muerto, and Monument. These canyons were cut by streams with headwaters in the Chuska mountains just to the east of the monument.

Canyon de Chelly is unique among National Park service units, as it consists entirely of Navajo Tribal Trust Land which remains in the ownership of the Navajo Nation and is home to the canyon community, while park matters are administered by the National Park Service. Access to the canyon floor is restricted, and visitors are allowed to travel in the canyons only when accompanied by a park ranger or an authorized Navajo guide. The only exception to this rule is the White House Ruin Trail.

Most park visitors arrive by automobile and view Canyon de Chelly from the rim, following both North Rim Drive and South Rim Drive. Ancient ruins and geologic structures are visible, but in the distance, from turnoffs on each of these routes. Tours of the canyon floor can be booked at the visitor center and at lodgings in the vicinity of the canyon. There is no fee to enter the canyon, apart from any charges imposed by tour guides.

Accommodations for visitors are located in the vicinity of the canyon, on the road leading to Chinle, which is the nearest town.

The National Monument was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on August 25, 1970.

The park's distinctive geologic feature, Spider Rock, is a sandstone spire that rises 800 feet (240 m) from the canyon floor at the junction of Canyon de Chelly and Monument Canyon. Spider Rock can be seen from South Rim Drive. It has served as the scene of a number of television commercials. According to traditional Navajo beliefs the taller of the two spires is the home of Spider Grandmother.

Description:

Chaco Canyon was the major center of ancestral Puebloan culture between 850 and 1250 AD., and the hub of activity in Four Corners area. The people who lived in Chaco Canyon left behind a well-organized and planned complex of buildings, laid out on a north-south grid and awe-inspiring for their size and complexity.

Any route to Chaco Canyon will involve driving some distance on dirt roads which are seldom maintained and may become impassable in wet weather. Call (505) 786-7014 to check the road conditions before you go. The nearest gasoline station is 60 miles from Chaco Canyon. Be sure to fill your tank.

The National Park Service recommends entering from the north. Take US 550 three miles south from Nageezi, NM, (or 50 miles west from Cuba, NM). At mile 112.5, turn onto County Road 7900. Follow the signs to Chaco Canyon entrance, 21 miles away. This route includes 16 miles of rough, dirt road.

If you are approaching from I-40, take Exit 53 and follow Highway 371 north. Don't let the signs you see along the way dishearten you. They show the mileage to the north entrance, but as long as the road is passable, you can get there by a route that's about 40 miles shorter. Follow Highway 371 to Highway 9 east (this turn is not well-marked, so pay close attention), then turn north onto Highway 57 and follow the dirt road for 20 miles.

A third route into the park passes through Pueblo Pintado, north on Navajo 46 for 10 miles, then turn left on County Road 7950 for 16 miles and follow the signs to the park. This route goes over 33 miles of dirt roads.

Don't let your road map fool you. While it looks like Highway 57 from Blanco Trading Post goes into Chaco Canyon, it does not. The road is closed at the park boundary.

Description:

Difficult trial that changes dramatically with water.

Jan 10, 2013 - downgraded to a 3 due to trail modifications from mining/forestry service activity removing and altering some of the more difficult obstacles.

The Charouleau Gap is one of the best 4WD trips in the Catalinas. This scenic route is for 4-wheel drive vehicles only. The road up and over Samaniego Ridge is rough, rocky and requires good ground clearance as well as excellent traction.

On the western half of the trip there are broad and expansive views as you climb up and back down Charouleau Gap, and the roads aren't quite as bad since they have been graded in the past. For the northern half of the trip, much of your time is spent down around the Canada del Oro wash and is especially rough in places. The toughest single spot by vehicle is known as The Step (N32.53085 W110.78176); because of the incline it is preferable to drive down it from Oracle; however, many manage to climb up it from the Catalina side. Mar, 2013 - The Step has now been bypassed by the forestry service.

The other tough spot is a quarter-mile stretch known as (yep) the Quarter Mile, which if driving from Oracle starts about a mile south of The Step (around N32.51812 W110.78185) and goes down to the bottom of the elbow in the route. One other place of note is a spot known as the Elevator Shaft (N32.56493 W110.78086), a climb that is long and steep, but has a solid surface for vehicles because of past grading. The route also has interesting rock formations, the remains of an old adobe home at a place marked on topo maps as Coronado Camp.

Directions:
From the Phoenix area, take US-60 East towards Globe. Just after Miami and before Globe, take HWY-188 left towards Roosevelt Lake. Make a right onto well signed HWY 288. About two miles after crossing the Salt River, turn right onto Cherry Creek Road (signed as FR203), a well graded dirt road.

Description:
The first part of FR203 is graded and easy driving through desert landscape. After you cross Cherry Creek near Ellison Ranch, the road gets rougher and you need 4WD. This is mainly because the Coon Creek fire has created a lot of flash flooding and rock falls that keep the trail "fun". The trail rating is a 2.5 -- a stock truck could make it with good tires. Most of the road is a shelf road that follows north along the cliffs.

Description:

Visit the site of an old dam from around 1890 commonly referred to as China Dam. You can drive to it with your vehicle. It is located a couple miles north of Lake Pleasant, just outside the Park boundary, on Humbug Creek. A hole in the center has kept it from silting in. It was used to store water for a high pressure mining operation along Humbug Creek. A flume also can be found that was used to transport water to mining operations downstream.

Description:

The Cinder Hills is a scenic recreation area enjoyed by many off-highway vehicle enthusiasts. Its numerous volcanic cinder cones and craters surrounded by a ponderosa pine forest environment gives the area its unique value. Due to a growing interest in this area for off-highway vehicle recreation, additional management direction is needed to protect sensitive resources and to provide for continuing use of this recreation.

Approximately 13,500 acres in the Cinder Hills has been designated for off-highway vehicle recreation. Management emphasis is for the use of 2-, 3-, and 4-wheel vehicles.

Description:

This is a moderate trail and any stock Land Rover is capable of handling this trail.

We will meet in Florence and follow the road that parallels the Gila River. Then we turn north into Box Canyon. The canyon is very scenic and is very narrow in sections. This section of the trail is fairly easy but there are several moderate sized rocks to get over.

After the canyon we make our way to the Coke Ovens. This part of the trail is long and there are many obstacles encountered like steep climbs, rocky steps, and other challenging rock obstacles. However, there are challenges for everyone! We will have lunch at the Coke Ovens which are huge beehive shaped ovens.

After lunch we make our way back track about a mile up the ridge and descend towards the Gile River and follwo the trail out towards White Canyon Wilderness. this section of the trail has suffered from heavy rain errosion over the past year but is still very passable. We end the day where Battle Axe Road meets Highway 177 just south of Superior.

Description:

Easiest way to get there is thru Mayer, AZ. off Hyw 69 to Prescott.

Where is a Circle-K in Mayer. From the Circle-K take Central to a left on Miami. From Miami take a right on Main St. Just past the Double D Bar on Main St., take a left on Wilks. At the three way junction at the end of Wilks, take Jefferson, which is the Goodwin Road.

The Goodwin Road intersects the Senator Hyw about half way between Prescott and CK. It's about 25 miles of dirt road.

Take a left onto Senator Hyw, stay on it for approx 4 miles and turn left onto FS 89. It goes thru a burned off area, decends a hill and crosses a large wash. Turn left into the wash and have a good time! Once thru the rocky sections, both of which are relatively short, you climb over a ridge or two until you get to the next major wash at the Goat Ranch. From there, the trail goes up the the Peck Mine Road. This appears to be the main road, but the DeSoto trail is a very sharp turn to the left. If you cont. out to the Peck Mine you intersect the main road to CK and miss all the hill climbs and the mine itself.

There are two cattle ponds on this section. They probably have water in'm. Prior to the second pond you have the option of going out via the "official" route in Charles Well's book, or heading up to the DeSoto Mine. There is a faint left turn off the main trail prior to the pond - that leads to some VERY VERY interesting off camber sections. I had my wheelin' buddy hang off the high side as a counter weight thru one spot- the body roll made it feel alot worse than it is, but looking out the drivers door down 45 deg angle at steep hillside always gives me the puckers

If you proceed on to the pond itself, the trail goes up and over the top of the ridge. The route can be very confusing at this point due to a bunch of mine roads branching off the main road. Stop at the top and explore, it offers some great veiws. The main mine is to your right on top of the hill. Once you cross the top, the trail leads down to a large flat section and the main road is bunkered off. If you look to the left edge of the brush on the flat section, you will find a steep decent down to a mine shaft- that is the way out of the maze. Follow that road out to the CK road - you come out above Cleator by a few miles.

If you have the time and want to see some more neat country, take a left at Cleator on the old railroad bed cut just east of the Cleator Bar. It will take you back to Mayer once it intersects the Old Cordes road.

Lots of varied terrain with great veiws and a ton of history. You pass close to one of the more famous Apache vs. Miner fights in the old west. Battle Flat is a great story of survival and outright toughness.

Dry Creek Scenic Road, a 6.5-mile portion of State Route 89A from Cottonwood to Sedona, crosses the Verde Valley on its way to Red Rock Country, with side trips to Cathedral Rock or Sedona’s backcountry of colorful hidden canyons and ancient ruins. The journey takes less than a half-hour nonstop, but plan on adding at least an hour or two for each side trip. After crossing the cottonwood-shaded Verde River, the highway climbs east. Look back for views of Cottonwood, Clarkdale and Jerome, which clings to the side of Mingus Mountain.

This Red Rock gem is a somewhat easier trail that leads to adventure! Don your hiking boots and be ready to visit two breathtaking natural arches, Devils Bridge and Vultee Arch. If that isn't enough adventure, a side trail to Ven Deren Cabin brings you back a hundred years to an old settler's cabin that was actually used in two hollywood movies.

Once upon a time…

… in a land far away, well actually it wasn’t that far. In fact, most of you are familiar with this place…It is a very hot place that we locals refer to as the Valley of the Sun. Well in this valley there was a very strong-willed, determined, feisty lady that wished to leave her footprints (legacy) in the valley she LOVED so dearly. Carman Tafoya, better known as Grandma, wanted to create a place where people could gather and enjoy the riches of fresh home made Mexican food. So in 1982 she purchased a little hole in the wall with enough room to squeeze in seven tables. Little did she know that in thirty years her restaurant would TRIPLE in size, expand to a Sky Harbor Airport Terminal, and become a multi-year, award winning establishment with many, many returning customers.

Although the size of the kitchen never increased the stomachs of the customers did and has for many years! Grandma would like to thank you, the customers, for making El Bravo one of the most popular Mexican food restaurants in the Valley of the Sun.

Description:

El Camino Del Diablo (Spanish for The Devil's Highway) is an historic 250-mile (400 km) road which currently extends through some of the most remote and arid terrain of the Sonoran Desert in Pima County and Yuma County, Arizona. In use for at least 1,000 years, El Camino Del Diablo is believed to have started as a series of footpaths used by desert-dwelling Native Americans. From the 16th to the 19th centuries, the road was used extensively by conquistadores, explorers, missionaries, settlers, miners, and cartographers. Use of the trail declined sharply after the railroad reached Yuma in 1870. In recognition of its historic significance, El Camino Del Diablo was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.

Description:

Four Peak, south of Hwy87 from FR143

The Four Peaks area and the El Oso Mine trail is a great place to explore within a short drive from Phoenix. I wanted to lead a trail for the 4x4wire Arizona Isuzu and Mitsubishi group, and felt that this trail would make the perfect introduction. We met at the start of the El Oso (four peaks) road, with everyone showing up at about 9:30. We made introductions and started to air down in preparation for the 18 mile drive on the graded road (designated FR143). This area is popular for all OHV users, so quads and trail bikes are to be expected, especially close to the highway.

Climb in elevation in the Mazatzal Mountains on FR143. This road eventually ends at Punkin Center NW of Theodore Roosevelt Lake. The trail rises to over 5,000' and reaches a saddle at Pine Mountain. This is where FR422 (Edwards Trail) heads north leaving FR143. This road is still tame and has a few steep climbs, but traction is good. At FR463 (N33 44.741 W111 22.175 NAD83) we left the main the El Oso mine trail (FR422) and start on the Joline Mine trail. This is where all of the challenges are encountered.

Within a few hundred yards of FR463, the trail yields some challenges, including some nice slabs that will test the suspension travel of the vehicle. This portion of the trail runs along a ridge overlooking Big Pine Flat, with some nice views. This area was damaged by fire many years ago, and is now just recovering. The brush here is very tight, and is the worst you will find throughout the loop.

Before we serve our ribs, we pull them out of the smoker and toss them on the grill to caramelize the sauces, creating a chagrined sweetness on the outside locking in the deep-down smokey flavor.

Description:

There are three distinct topographic zones within the area: The craggy summits of the peaks, the complex series of ridges and drainages below the peaks, and the area of bluffs and short deep gorges bordering Apache and Canyon Reservoirs. Elevations vary from 1,600 feet near Mormon Flat Dam to 7,657 feet at the summit of Brown's Peak, the northern-most and highest of the four peaks.

Plant communities and their relationships with each other are particularly interesting in this area. This is due to the rapid changes in both elevation and aspect. North-facing slopes often will have entirely different vegetation than will an adjacent south-facing slope. Rapid changes in elevations produce unusual neighbors, with species of plants usually growing hundreds of miles apart found side-by-side. At the highest elevation, Ponderosa pine and some Douglas fir are found. There are one or two small stands of aspen on the north slope of Brown's Peak. At intermediate elevations (6,000 - 4,000 ft.), extensive stands of Mountain chaparral are encountered.

Pinyon pine, Gambel oak, and manzanita are typical species, and often form impenetrable thickets. Below 4,000 ft., semidesert grasslands blend into the Upper Sonoran Desert. Impressive stands of the giant Saguaro cactus can be seen at the lowest elevations. Of particular interest are the narrow canyons with riparian vegetation, including pleasing groups of cottonwoods and sycamores. Also of special interest are areas that have burned over at various times in the past, with various sub-climax species to be found.

As with vegetation, the rapid changes in elevation bring together diverse species of wildlife within a relatively small area. Studies have shown that this area contains one of the highest concentrations of black bears in the State of Arizona. Campers should take all appropriate precautions, especially with food storage. Other mammals found here include ring-tailed cats, skunks, coyotes, deer, javelina, and mountain lion. A band of desert bighorn sheep has been reintroduced near here, and a rare sighting is possible. Rattlesnakes, scorpions, black widows, centipedes, millipedes, etc., also call parts of this area home.

The inception of the idea for Helio Basin Brewing Co. started, albeit merely as a pipe dream for the founders, almost 15 years ago over a few homebrew batches with some friends at Allegheny College in Meadville, PA. After graduation they went two different directions, Mike to the Marines as an officer and Dustin to the Siebel Institute to start a professional brewing career. As time passed, one thing always kept coming up in conversation, the idea of opening up a brewery.

Dedication to the quality and consistency of the beer, the food, the service and the atmosphere are all top tier priorities at Helio Basin Brewing Company. Our team of like-minded people have a passion for creating a place that not only offers top quality brews and food, but also creates a sense of community for its customers as well as its craft brewing compatriots. Our menu is purposely and uniquely concise. In staying with the vision for quality, our Chef and her team have created an amazing menu that is distinctive and also allows us to focus on freshness and variation. We find it to be the perfect blend of simple, delicious and unpretentiously sophisticated.

This is another long overland style trip to whet your taste for adventure. One of the most scenic and popular wilderness areas within Arizona is the Sycamore Canyon Wilderness, with its striking red rock canyons and mountains. Although there are more than 70 places with the name Sycamore in Arizona alone,

Sycamore Canyon near Sedona is probably the best known. The canyon is 25 miles long and up to 7 miles across at its widest point. Scattered throughout are many cliff dwellings left behind by early Indians.

This trail leaves Perkinsville Road in the Prescott National Forest to travel a roughly graded , single-track trail toward the Sycamore Wilderness Boundary.  The trail winds through the pinyon/juniper forest, crossing through a number of small canyons.  The red bluffs of Sycamore Canyon come into view as the trail passes an old cabin.  The trail ends at the Sycamore Canyon Wilderness boundary.

Description:

A great trip, but a long one. This trail starts on the NE corner of Lake and takes about 1 day to drive in and another to drive out.

A lot of areas where the trail can easily be lost, and you are travelling in extreme remote conditions. You need to bring everything you're going to need if you want to make it out.

The trail follows the original trail carved by the mormons on their way to establish a town in Utah, and many of the dynamite holes and blast areas are discernable.

Trail Rating per Wells book - Difficult

The first part of the trail is scenic but uneventful. Conditions quickly become more interesting along the power line, especially one very steep hilly section that gives the trail it's difficult rating. Attendees should expect everything from shelf roads, washouts and deep ruts in a few sections.

Toughest spot is a short section of steep rocky hills near the end. Most of the trail is easy, handled by any stock Land Rover with proper off road tires and transfer case for the steep section.

Sound like a day at the beach?  Well, actually, the sands at the Hot Well Dunes Recreation Area were a beach surrounding a lake approximately two million years ago.  What remains today offers one of the most unique recreation spots in Arizona.  Where else does the opportunity to ride in sand dunes and soak in relaxing hot tubs exist at the same location?

Haekel Road - From Safford, travel seven miles east on Highway 70.  Turn right (south) on BLM's Haekel Road and proceed 25 miles to the area.

Fan Road - From Bowie, drive two miles north on Central Avenue to Fan Road. Travel one mile east on Fan then go north on Donahue for one mile. Turn east on Rosewood and follow it for six miles to Haekel. Go another nine miles north to the site.

Tanque Road - This road provides access from Highway 191.  The turnoff from Highway 191 onto Tanque Road is located near milepost marker 105.

Description:

Jack Handle is about a 6 hr or so to drive for an experienced, well equipped group of say 5-6 trucks from the trail head, plus several hours to and from the trail.

Expect about a 9-10 hr day minimum to run it out and back if everything goes smooth. Any more trucks or any issues on the obstacles and that could easily go much higher.

Non-experienced drivers or trucks without the needed mods would make it a real headache to get through in a reasonable time frame. Add the high potential for vehicle damage and the trail should really only be considered for club runs of suitably prepared people/vehicles with plenty of time.

Description:

This is a very scenic and historic trail. Most of the trail is graded dirt road (40-50 mph)except the 14 miles into Jackson Cabin from Hooker Hot Springs which is considered easy-moderate (5-10 mph) and suited to any 4x4.

The trip takes us east on I-10 to Pomerene, north to Cascabel, east and north to Hooker Hot Springs. This area is owned by The Nature Conservancy and at present allowing vehicle traffic (who knows how long this will last, so take advantage of this great opportunity).

Several trails in the area have been permanently closed to OHV. Hooker Hot Springs has casitas for rent which includes hot spring privileges. Along the trail to Jackson Cabin we will pass several ranch houses (Browning, Pride) which are in remarkable shape including wind mills. The Pride ranch house can be rented for overnight stays.

We travel through several lush canyons with sycamores, cottonwood and huge oak trees. Jackson Cabin in a quaint little valley with lush vegetation and surrounding Galiuro Mountain cliffs. Jackson Cabin has a rich history and there is a log book full of stories for your enjoyment and add your own. The Cabin is fairly clean and cool inside thanks to the 2 foot thick rock walls. The Cabin is habitable for humans and can/has been used for camping (stove, fireplace, table, screens on windows and doors).

Description:

The dealership's playground for demonstrating a Land Rover's capabilities to those who might never take their Landy off-road.

From a former LR Scottsdale employee:

The track takes about 10 - 15 minutes to drive. A vehicle can start every 5 minutes or so. A word of caution: there are some panel crunching rocks if the cross axle obstacle line is off. Know too that the first ascent after the water provides for a very slick surface and requires some skill when there have been a multitude of vehicles ahead of you. Sliding backwards after an aborted run is known to happen. And the hills are quite narrow.

The fencing is there so that you have one point of reference other wise its blue sky and no reference to your right or left. Freelanders will take a wheel off the ground on the off camber, rounded slide slope. In the heat expect your vehicle to slide 6-8' on that slide slope. Slide slope is approximately 38 degrees (every factory rover is designed for 45). Watch yourself if you've put in lift and loosened your suspension.

The course is to demonstrate the near end limits of the vehicle - and there may be a restriction on Series and Defender vehicles.

Description:

The San Francisco Peaks are actually the remains of an extinct volcano. Millions of years ago this great mountain was shattered by an explosion similar to the one that devastated Washington's Mt. Saint Helens in 1980. Inside the now quiet caldera a lush alpine environment has blurred evidence of that cataclysmic event.

The trail into the heart of the ancient volcano begins in beautiful Lockett Meadow. From this island of emerald ringed with aspens and high peaks it follows a primitive road into the mountain's now quiet Inner Basin and then connects to the Weatherford trail. Here, extensive stands of aspens cover the steep slopes of the old caldera coloring them solid gold in early fall. In spring and summer, wildflowers add a sprinkling of blue, red and yellow. From the basin's rims, avalanche tracks streak down the talus slopes and remnants of old lava flows bear witness to the mountain's cataclysmic heritage.

Snow may remain here even into summer. Cross-country skiers continue to ski as late as June in some years. Hiking is the most popular way of visiting this beautiful and unique environment; however, and hikers begin coming to the basin before the snows have completely melted from the trail.

Animals you may see in this high country include porcupine and elk. Black bears have been known to stroll right through groups of picnickers without so much as a glance at their lunches. The hermit thrush sings his best here. The climb to this high mountain place, where spring comes late and fall arrives early, is moderate but steady, but the reward is worth every bit of the effort.

Description:

A scenic route running from the Beeline Highway to the riverside area below Bartlett Lake giving breathtaking views of Bartlett Lake, the Verde River and the Mazatzal and Superstition mountains.

When driving this trail from the Beeline side the driver is offered up a challenging rock garden right about 1.5 miles into the trail. The garden doesn't have any bypasses but does offer lines of varying difficulty. Adding to the mix is a series of seeps and springs that keep this section of the trail damp nearly year round. It's easy to slip throughout the rock garden. The remainder of the trail is sandy wash and loose gravel.

This trail has extensive brush than encroaches on the trail from the sides as well as the top. We did not trim this trail. You will get desert pin striping on your car. A Discovery that pre-ran the trail had roof rack damage from low hanging branches.

A lifted Rover is required for this trip as are recovery points front and rear. You will also need at least one locker, and a second may limit the need for winching.

Description:

There are two parts to this trail, getting to it (the section described here) and running it (see "Martinez Mine Loop"). Getting to it means traveling in normally through Box Canyon and the trail to the Martinez Cabins. The section to the cabins had changed a little due to some extra washouts and some rocks but it’s still not overly difficult. Unlocked trucks might have a little difficulty with getting cross axled in places but should make it through with care. The cabins are still there but the white one has half collapsed and the generator that used to be behind it has now been dragged some distance back to the rocky creek on the way in.

McFate Brewing Company (formerly Fate Brewing Company) is a local brewpub with two locations in Scottsdale, AZ specializing in bold beers and perfectly paired bites.

Every community needs a place to go to celebrate the better things in life. New jobs and relationships. Good friends and happy families. And to us, that place has always been the local brewpub.

So in 2012, we built McFate's Tap + Barrel to be the place in our community we'd take our best friends to. And we did it the best way we knew how—by cooking up delicious wood-fired pizzas and brewing mighty fine beers in small batches, then rotating them often to make sure they're always fresh, and always thrilling.

After frequently running out of our own beers, we expanded in 2015 to a much larger brew house and restaurant located in south Scottsdale.

Come along and join us for a pint and a pie. You're always welcome in our little corner of the world.

Description:

Experience the wonder of discovery among the buttes, mesas, canyons, and free standing rock formations that fill Monument Valley. The tranquility of the land, culture, and traditions infuse the valley with a uniquely Navajo flavor.

Monument Valley was created as material eroded from the ancestral Rocky Mountains, and was deposited and cemented into sandstone. The formations you see in the valley were left over after the forces of erosion worked their magic on the sandstone. A geologic uplift caused the surface to bulge and crack. Wind and water then eroded the land, and the cracks deepened and widened into gullies and canyons, which eventually became the scenery you see today. Natural forces continue to slowly shape the land.

Monument Valley is a Navajo Tribal Park (30,000 acres) established in 1958 and located on the border of Arizona and Utah with in the 16 million-acre Navajo Reservation. The Park is about 5,500 feet above seal level and accessible year-round.

Temperatures range from an average low of 25 degrees F in the winter to an average high of 90 degrees F in the summer. Rainfall averages eight inches/year.

The North Mountain Brewing Company is a locally owned family operated business, founded by Phoenix area native Rob Berkner who shares a passion for the Arizona desert culture and the art of craft-beer brewing. Rob and his wife Candy are proud to bring their interpretation of the history and art of a traditional brew-pub.

Our inspiration comes from the public houses of Colonial America and Britannia, mixed with the spirit of the iconic beer halls of Europe. With a modern interpretation, this decidedly American establishment gives beer drinkers a new place to call “Home.” Our decor, motif, theme, and state-of-mind revolve around brewing, the history of brewing, and how the wonderful creation of beer has brought many societies together, and helped to create a sense of “community.”

What a great concept! A festive gathering hall where the entire town is welcome to enjoy great tasting beer, food, fun, and the company of its fellow neighbors.

Description:

Nestled between Stewart Mountain and the Goldfield Mountains in the Tonto National Forest of Arizona lies a man-made reservoir called Saguaro Lake. The reservoir was built between 1925 and 1935 with the construction of the Stewart Mountain Dam, and it is fed by a series of up-stream lakes from the east: Roosevelt, Apache, and Canyon. Saguaro Lake in turn feeds the Salt River to the south. Being the last lake in the chain, it is almost always brimming full, even in drought years, making it a wonderful recreation site. For the fisherman, the lake offers Walleye Pike, Largemouth Black Bass and Striped Yellow Bass.

Butcher Jones Trail runs along a section of Saguaro Lakeís northern shore, offering many scenic overlooks of the lake and the surrounding mountains. Colorful mountains surround the Salt River basin and add a dramatic backdrop to the lake. Butcher Jones Trail 463 provides access to some choice vantage points from which to catch a birdís-eye view of the lake.

Once through the green gate almost any capable off-road vehicle can make the journey to the coves via a network of un-maintained dirt roads, hills and washes. The first cove is about three miles from the entrance, and the fifth cove is about ten miles away. The washes are soft smooth sand, but the area between the washes includes a number of hill climbs and descents that are noted for their deep ruts and loose gravel.

Rovers with low rage recommended for this trail.

Description:

This trail was described in The Arizona Republic as 'one of the prettiest drives you'll ever take'. The trail begins at the base of Salt River Canyon, where US-60 crosses the Salt River northeast of Globe. The trail begins with the outstanding scenery of traveling along the bottom of the Salt River Canyon, a feeling of being inside a mini Grand Canyon. We will splash through Cibeque Creek where it meets the Salt River, and work our way west toward the Rock Canyon grotto, which may be seeping water if there has been enough precipitation. Lunch likely will be along Gleason Flats, which offers a wide view of the valley and the Salt River below. The trail finishes through Cherry Creek road and wonderful views of the Sierra Ancha mountains, and finally connects with State Route 288.

Note: This trail begins on the Fort Apache Indian Reservation, and requires that each vehicle purchase a day permit for $5.00.

Description:

Twenty one air miles northeast of Cave Creek, Arizona, in the Bloody Basin area of the Tonto National Forest, the Verde River makes a Z-shaped bend between two prominent rock out croppings. There, in 1943, Flagstaff Sheep Company, which had been grazing sheep in the area since 1926, constructed a cable suspension bridge to provide safe passage for it's sheep across the river. In 1988, weakened by years of service and floods, the bridge was dismantled. A year later, a new structure of similar design was erected on the site, even though sheep ranching was no longer carried out in the area. It provides hikers, horseback riders, and hunters access into the Mazatzal Wilderness, located a few miles east of the Verde River.

This is a great trail for beginners not looking for too much challenge. The trail is very dusty but it is unlikely you will get scratches or damage to your Rover.

Description:

Smiley Rock trail will leave you smiling as you enter the historic mining town of Jerome and hit the dirt shorty after the fire station. The trail begins as a well maintained road, and gradually builds in difficulty as you gain elevation. Near the end, the last couple of miles provides excellent challenges as you navigate rocky stream beds. Tire placement is critical and rock stacking is expected. Stock vehicles with stock tires should use caution.

The trail is mostly easy/moderate but there is a 1/4mile rock garden towards the end which may require spotting for some.

The trail is located just outside Jerome, AZ which is about 90 miles from Phoenix.



Features: Allow plenty of time to see historic Jerome. The town is a major tourist attraction offering an array of quaint gift shops, art galleries, museums and restaurants. If you’re into mining history, plan a stop at the Gold King Mine and Ghost Town along the route or take a short side trip to Jerome State Historic Park. Both of these attractions require a small fee. Once in the backcountry, you’ll enjoy your secluded adventure through Martin Canyon, which follows the southern border of the Woodchute Wilderness. Hike and camp at various points along the way. Some of this trail is officially part of the Great Western Trail. This rating applies to the portion of the trip through Martin Canyon which is narrow and rocky. Skid plates and good articulation are recommended. Brush is tight in several places. Much of the route is an easy gravel road.

Description:

According to Wells, P. 165, difficult. Stock SUV's can reach Sunflower Mine. Difficult portion of the trail begins later. It becomes rocky and narrow with tight brush (sorry John S.) in places. One narrow shelf road with loose rock. 13 miles about 4 hours.

Sunflower was a cavalry water station in 1868 and was a side station to Camp Reno. Known as Camp O'Connell, there was one building by the roadside on a military road from Fort McDowell to Camp Reno and to Payson. The military left Camp Reno and Sunflower in April 1870. Apaches were surprised when they found Camp Reno empty, and they burned everything down to the ground.

The trail is FR25A, the road to the mercury mine. A high clearance vehicle is required.

The mine was abandoned when the Viper Militia destroyed a bridge over a deep chasm while experimenting with explosives. The Forest Service has now rebuilt the bridge. It is a short walk to one of the mine tunnels and on beyond to view the large amount of equipment. This is a scenic drive through wilderness and a short walk.

The Sunflower Mine produced mercury. The mercury was extracted from an ore called cinnabar. This ore was broken down into fine particles which were then burned in vertical furnaces to produce mercury gas. After passing through multiple U shaped pipes, the mercury gas cooled and liquified producing pure mercury. The mineworks building still stands and all the processing machinery can still be seen.

This fun and challenging trail will test your vehicle and driving skills.

This trail requires a modified Land Rover. The minimum requirements are working low range and offroad tires. Rock sliders are recommended to prevent door sill damage.

Description:

This trail is a true vehicle tester. Modified only no stock. Locker recommended.

This trail is adjacent to Catalina State Park in Tucson. It is the pole line for power/phone to Mt. Lemmon. Great view of Tucson and Oro Valley.

This is a difficult trail (3.5 to 4) that runs up the north side of Catalina State Park. It was originally used to establish phone and power lines to Mt. Lemmon and WAS another access to the top of Mt. Lemmon until the Wilderness area was established cutting off a corner of the trail preventing access to the top. This trail has no stop rocks, boulders, rocks, cracks, rock faces, rocks, and washed out areas all within about a 2 mile trail that takes 5 to 6 hours. Oh and did I mention there are a lot of rocks along the way. It's an up and back trail but provides challenges for all. Modified vehicles are recommended, locker suggested.

Description:

Sycamore Creek offers outstanding views on a moderate to difficult trail. There are a few 'Oh My' obstacles that look much worse than they are as well as some play hills to challenge any Rover.

The trail starts by crossing the dry Sycamore Creek and wandering through a mildly improved area back and forth across the creek to a dry wash. The wash narrows and can be tricky for full sized vehicles without extra clearance. As the trail starts to climb out of the wash the views begin. There are options of varying difficulty to obtain the ridge where stunning views of Four Peaks and the desert are afforded. A windy narrow desert road travels ridges and ravines offering easy to moderate off-roading.

Shortly after a steep decent into a wash a wall like obstacle is reached. It is easy to drive by because it is a slab of granite that does not resemble the road. A great sense of accomplishment is felt for new comers as they conquer this impossible looking obstacle with ease. More easy to moderate terrain follows

After climbing to a saddle with interesting quartz rock a steep twisty decent takes you into another wash. The wash has some small boulders and interesting wheeling. This wash will take you to the exit Lower Sycamore Road. Here you have the opportunity to try numerous play hills some of which shrink to canyons only inches wider than your car.

If you want more adventure, continue down stream in Sycamore Creek until you hit the Verde River. At low flow times, you can cross the river even in a stock Rover. On the other side of the river a seldom used road leads you back to Fountain Hills.

Offers optional play hills and one optional obstacle for those wanting more challenge. It can be run in 3-4 hours depending on the number of vehicles and the usual circumstances. Stock vehicles can run this.

Description:

The trail is scenic, the difficulty is moderate. Telegraph Canyon is a favorite. This trail begins at Superior, winds up through Telegraph Canyon, Upper Box Canyon, a lunch stop at the abandoned Ajax Mine, and a wild completion over the 'dragonback' ridges. This trail is perfect for the stock Land Rover (or should that be the other way around!), and any difficult spot has an option.

The trail’s main challenges come from the rocky sections at the start of the trail as it proceeds toward Telegraph Canyon and from a narrow pathway at the edge of the shelf road and some deep washouts. Telegraph canyon is fairly wide, surrounded by jagged peaks, and has excellent views in all directions. As the trail winds around the head of the canyon climbing its way up the ridge, the views get better and better. The section of trail before Ajax Mine has some fairly deep washouts that have left a narrow pathway with just enough room to get a full-size vehicle through.

 

We will meet at the Circle K gas station in Superior at 9am with departure at 9:30am. The gas station is on the right side as you enter Superior on US60.

Description:

Temporal Gulch is a scenic trail that starts off in the town of Patagonia. It follows Forest road 72 into the Santa Rita Mountains. There are various spurs that can be taken also. The trail is easy for any Land Rover with a decent set of tires. Low Range not required, but can be useful for the descent back down the mountain.

This spur trail travels through one of the most scenic and varied canyons in the Santa Rita Mountains. The fantastic views and moderately challenging trail, coupled with excellent backcountry camping and birding opportunities, combine to make this trail a favorite among many. The trail departs the picturesque town of Patagonia, and for the first 6.1 miles is well-graded dirt, as it travels through the open grasslands alongside Gringo Gulch and into Coronado National Forest. Special Attractions: Panoramic views over the Sierra Vista Valley and mountains to the east; Access to hiking trails and national forest campgrounds; Reef town site. High-clearance 4WDs are required. This trail has either a rough, rutted surface, rocks up to 9 inches, mud and deep sand that may be impassable for inexperienced drivers, or stream crossings up to 18 inches deep. Certain sections may be steep enough to cause traction problems, and you may encounter very narrow shelf roads with steep drop-offs and tight clearance between rocks or trees

Description:

Turkey Creek to Mammoth via 'The Rug Road.' Moderate+ trail with some steps and loose rock climbs (stock LR's without running boards okay), Historic trail, full day.

Rug Road got its name from the remnants of carpet that people have used to fill holes and ledges along the road to make it more passable. The road is one of the roughest roads in the southeastern Arizona - it is not for the faint of heart. Travel on the Rug Road requires a good high-clearance, four-wheel-drive vehicle and experience driving in these conditions. The road transverses Table Mountain between Turkey Creek on the east end and Mammoth on the west end. It is only about 20 miles long but will take a full day to traverse. You may want to plan for two days to be safe and to let your body recuperate from the rugged road!

Description
Vulture Peak Trail is a short, but steep, trail that takes hikers 2 miles from the base of Vulture Peak, elevation 2,480 feet, to a saddle at 3,420 feet, just below the summit. The trail is located in the Sonoran Desert and treats visitors to a larger-than-life garden including saguaro cactus, palo verde, mesquite, bursage, creosote, jojoba, ocotillo, ironwood, and numerous cactus species, including prickly pear, teddybear cholla, barrel cactus, hedgehog cactus, and various shrubs and grasses. Years with abundant winter rains can result in springtimes with hillsides awash in thick blankets of wildflowers. Hikers can expect to see globe mallows, mariposa lilies, blackfoot daisies, lupine, red penstemon, desert poppies, and brittlebushes. The area provides habitat for a number of mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians.

Directions
From Wickenburg, drive west on U.S. Highway 60 for 2.5 miles, turn left at the Vulture Mine Road, and drive south for 7 miles, then turn left at the Vulture Peak Trail sign to the parking lot.

A photographer’s dream. Beautiful Sonoran Desert with towering red buttes on all sides of the trail. A fun drive offering real adventure.

 

Washouts possible and rock stacking may be required. A lovely lunch break at the river provides fun for the kids.

 

Beautiful Sonoran Desert with towering red buttes on all sides of the trail. A fun drive offering real adventure. Hike into the nearby White Canyon Wilderness area north of the trail. Winding, rutted road with moderate climbs and descents. Narrow in a few places. Our group drove the trail following a period of torrential rains. Several places were badly washed out, which required some rock-stacking for several stock vehicles in our group. While the road is well defined most of the way, one section crosses a low sandy area along the Gila River. Rains had washed away previous tire tracks making route-finding difficult. Skid plates and high ground clearance recommended for stock vehicles. Brush may lightly touch your vehicle. Go with other vehicles in case you need help.

Description:

This trail runs through an arid region of southern Arizona, passing through some old, established ranches and grasslands, giving views of the Tortilla Mountains and the Santa Catalinas.

Suffering Wash, Bloodsucker Wash, Rattlesnake Tank, and Hot Boy Mine tell their own tales. This trail runs through an arid region of southern Arizona, passing through some old, established ranches and grasslands, giving views of the Tortilla Mountains and the Santa Catalinas.

Special Attractions: Less-traveled dirt road that accesses Summerhaven at the top of Mt. Lemmon; Historic site of American Flag. High-clearance vehicles are preferred, but not necessary. This trail is dirt roads, but may have rocks, grades, water crossings, or ruts that make clearance a concern in a normal passenger vehicle.

Description:

Woolsey Peak is a beautiful, uniquely-shaped lava-dome monolith located in the desert north of Gila Bend in southern Maricopa County, about 60 miles driving from Phoenix. It's a peak that gets viewed thousands of times a day by travelers along Interstates 8 in Gila Bend of Interstate-10 to the north - the peak itself rises over 2,000 vertical feet above the desert plain and a good 1,000 feet above any of the other peaks in the region (collectively called the Gila Bend Mountains). Instead of the more usual pointed summit shape that most of the peaks have in this region, Woolsey's summit is a broad rounded dome, surrounded by a palisade of cliffs on all sides.

Below the cliffs is an encircling apron of black basalt lava rock seemingly all set at its angle of repose. Then, of course, down below that is more typical desert terrain of dirt, rock and cactus. It's very beautiful country, and the peak is the centerpiece of the Woolsey Peak Wilderness which spreads for 64,000 acres.
