Northern Arizona is a huge area. Where are you thinking? Western by Kingman and the Colorado River? The eastern area by New Mexico? Or the area around Flagstaff, the GC, and Page?

Flagstaff area in particular, but I'm willing to drive a few hours to see some new country

Just north of Flag is quite a few really neat places where you can see old volcanic activity. I haven't been up there in awhile but you can probably find some good info on the web about it.

If you drive out through Sunset Crater National Monument pickup a map of the area. Just to the east after leaving the park on the main road you will find a dirt road (FR 776) on the right side. It leads to the Cinder Hills OHV area. Loads of cinder... hills! Lots of fun in the loose stuff. Even though I've lived here for many years my wife and I only recently started exploring the area. It is a hoot! Just don't get buried! It can be soft and deep in places.

You'll find a good map and guide in the book 'Guide to Arizona Backroads and 4-Wheel-Drive Trails' by Charles Wells & Matt Peterson.

There are plenty more places to explore. Check out Sedona, too. Has some fun slick rock trails.

I picked that book up by random chance at a Half Priced Books up at Paradise Valley Mall for $4 and it is really, really descriptive. I second the recommendation.

Northern Arizona Places to Go

Pick yourself up the book called "Guide to Arizona Backroads & 4-Wheel Drive Trails" by Charles A. Wells. You can get it just about anywhere. I believe I got mine from Amazon. It's about $25 and well worth it. It shows about 75 trails, 86 maps, over 300 photos plus it has the GPS Waypoints. Each trail is identified by Easy, Moderate, or Difficult and explains why. There are many great off roads adventures in the Grand Canyon area (North Rim), around Sedona, and many around Prescott area. There is even a nice Ice Cave in the Flagstaff area.
