Phoenix, and neighbors.

Just wanted to know how many of you all frequent the forums.

Anthem, North Valley

2004 TJ.



I am going to be putting together a hand full of runs each spring and fall.

We just went to Crown King. All day. Pics on the forum.

Going to be putting together a Back way to Strawberry run soon. Half day.

I wouldnt count on sunflower mine its supposed to be open wednesday the 1st but one of the guys from azvjc went to check it out and the bridge is impassable and the first obstacle is going to require heavily modified jeeps. They had a big run going for opening day but got cancled due to trail conditions and the bridge being impassable by vehicle. Check out face book for pics

I'm originally from northern Arizona and have only need up to crown king a few times so I don't know any real trails around the valley. I want to see what my stock jeep can do out here

I would also be interested in a beginner run. Would be my first time and since I just picked the jeep up its sitting on bone stock suspension and tires. Don't plan to lift right now, but picking up some DuraTracs hopefully pretty soon. I have no plans to hit trails where I'm risking any damage at this point since its my DD.

I won't be around this weekend, but a future run would be good. I was reading the crown king thread and that looks like a blast. Can bypass the rough stuff if I wanted.

We did Broken Arrow last weekend. Was good times...

We need to pick a general location to head to.



Table Mesa is close and has some easy trails for stock Jeeps. I know one little wash that is a great couple hour run.

I would probably be in for something on the 18th. I'm stock now though. I've done bulldog canyon, box canyon and back road to crown king so far. If its a beginner course make sure everyone has permits if you go somewhere that requires it.

Got kids this weekend, but I would be down. The weekend of the 18th I'm heading out of town for a family thing. Following weekend is Memorial Day weekend and we are heading to Golfo de Santa Clara (El Golfo) Mexico to go have some fun on the beach and dunes. Lots of offroading fun with the Jeep and our RZR's.

Keep in mind I'm bone stock sport so no rock crawling or trails where I'm gonna risk damage at this point.

I was reading up on What to do in Az - Experience AZ 4WD Adventures and wanted to try Hassayampa Canyon since it looks fairly easy, has some water normally and cool views. This is what I'm looking at doing for my first offroad experience.

ok, sorry for the absence. Mom had her second stroke...

I would still like to do a family trip up in Sedona this weekend...

Possibly Blue Monster and then Soldiers Pass...

You will need a Red Rock pass ($20.00) good for the year or ($5.00) for the day... I will track down the closest location.

Coconino National Forest Passes for Red Rock on myscenicdrives.com

Blue Monster is a Moderate run, 8.2 miles. 1.5 to 2 hours. Will get there via I17 exit 287 head Northwest on 260 to Cherry Hill RD.

https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=3...sz=16&t=m&z=16

Then lunch and head off to Soldiers Pass.

Soldiers Pass is a Difficult run, 2.5 miles. About 1 hour. Get there Via 179 in Sedona, head west on the 89A...

https://maps.google.com/maps?q=34.88...num=1&t=h&z=18

Leave from gas station in Anthem located on the west side off of Anthem Way between 8:30 to 9:00 am.

https://maps.google.com/maps?q=3552+...ona+85086&z=17

I am taking my family ages 5, 4, 2.

I am sure I am missing something, let me know...

Ahhh, wish I didn't have to head out of town this weekend. Would be an awesome run. Looked at Soldiers pass, probably the only part I would struggle is on Devils Kitchen. Please, plan something again like this. Would love to do the family trip thing when I can.

Edit: btw, hope mom is doing better.

Reading experience-az it looks like you are fine, but Devils Kitchen has some steps. They didn't look too hard.

I'm in for this. I'll have to pick up a red rock pass once in Sedona though.
