Description:

This is a fun little SUV trip that climbs to a high desert overlook. On the way, you’ll pass under a large railroad trestle and through a scenic narrow canyon. Drivers with hard-core vehicles can go up a short optional side canyon to test their rock-crawling skills. The trail crosses a mix of private and State Trust Land. Carry a State Trust Land permit. You’ll find many side roads for ATV’s, UTV’s and dirt bikes. There are places where it’s easy to get lost in a maze of roads.

Most of the way you just follow a well-traveled wide sandy wash with no significant trouble spots. The road to the overlook is steep and rutted in places, but any high clearance 4×4 SUV should be able to make it. Flash floods possible in washes.

Time & Distance: The trail is 16.7 miles and takes 2 to 3 hours.

Directions to the Trail: From Tucson take Hwy 77 north about 14 miles past Oracle to the town of Mammoth. On the north side of Mammoth turn left on paved Camino Rio Road just before medical building. Turn left off the pavement immediately before going into the medical building parking lot.

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:

The United Verde & Pacific Railroad was once described as the "crookedest line in the world" because it had 126 curves along its 26.3 mile length.  For the most part, this trail follows along the path of the old railroad.  It traveled between Chino Valley and Jerome.
