My Arizona Offroading Adventures

Here I will keep a list and all my pics from my offroading adventures. This list of trails is from the book, "Guide to arizona Backroads & 4-Wheel-Drive Trails". They are almost all listed as easy or moderate. I don't plan on trying anything too tough until I do some good mods. Right now she just has 34" toyo open countries on her. Here are the first 10 trails:

Harquahala Peak
Belmont Mountain
Crapshoot (difficult)
China Dam, Ft Tule
Tip Top Mine
Vulture Mine
New River
Big Maggie May Creek
Black Canyon City Overlook
Box Canyon at Hassayampa River


Some of these may also turn into camping trips. I will try to post up my next trail with at least a week's notice. Anybody wanting to join me is more than welcome. I may be hitting up other trails in between as well. Should be a very fun year for my family and I!

Harquala Peak- 26 May 2013

The Toyota had to turn around at the top where it is the toughest....just didn't have the power for one of the last inclines. The Chevy blew a tire on the way down. My Dodge took the toughest route every chance I got and she had no issues. Pictures don't do this trail justice at all.

We are pretty fortunate to have so many great trails here. However, a lot of them require some pretty serious equipment and are not for the faint of heart due to the hazardous terrain and weather conditions.

It sure is a ton of fun! I hated trading in my pavement puppy (Viper Truck) but trips like that make it all worth it.
