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 trail is a very scenic trail located about 30 miles north of Phoenix, near Bumble Bee Arizona. The trail travels above and eventually winds through a wide canyon that offers a mild challenge for most 4x4 vehicles. In the early 1900's, the area was once a rich silver and gold mining region but only a couple small operations remain to this day. Along the way you may choose to divert down a very steep ledge road to the stone cabin ruins found in the wash below. There are also many beautiful sections with towering shade trees offering relief from the desert sun. Always remember to pack extra water for trips such as this.

This trail is wonderful traveling in either direction, both offering great views of the surrounding Bradshaw Mountains. Either way, be sure to plan for a stop at the very unique Cleator Bar and Yacht Club where you'll be greeted with a one of a kind bar experience. At this point you can explore one of the many trails in the area or continue up the mountain to Crown King and Senator Highway.

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!
