Broken Arrow Trip, Sedona AZ.

With all the USFS closures in NM, we are planning a 3 day Weekend to Sedona, AZ. in July (dates will be based on the groups availability) sometime after the 4th, Got Broken Arrow and a few other trails planned. As of right now we plan to drive over on a Friday: check into Hotel do a little Sudz-n-Grub that night. Saturday: Wheel all day with dinner & Drinks to follow. Sunday: sleep in, late Breakfast and run Shnebly Hill road back to Flagstaff(told it has fantastic scenery and is very picturesque trail) to finish up, getting us back to the Albuq. area early Sunday evening. If anyone is interested let me know. I will put together all the info and get it posted if there is any interest, as far as hotel(s) plan on 2 nights, and your personal supply's for this trip. To the best of my knowledge any of these trails can be ran by a stock rig so don't let that stop you. This is just going to be a nice family orientated get away, hoping for a "1st Wed's group" field trip..LoL All rigs are invited. Any input is appreciated.

You are going to Sedona in July? Brave man. It'll be packed.

For beer and food head to Oak Creek Brewery and Grill in the Tlaquepague Village.

I will carry my AZ trails book with me. The next time we meet up you can check it out.
Broken Arrow is a good choice. It is one of my favorites. We did the trail the first time in a stock TJ Sahara, so you're knowledge holds. We also did it in a Exterra, but it wasn't the same.

I am sure it will busy in town, but hopefully the trails wont be to bad. The Pink jeeps are out all year for the most part, so no avoiding them. Guess we'll see.

I did hear Oak Creek Brewery is a great place, A local friend of mine recommended it as well.
He is going meet up with us and show us few of his local favorite trails. A lot of the trails in that area are close and short so several can be ran in a day with ease. Should be a nice time.

He kinda said the same about Sedona being busy, but a very do'able wheeling weekend.

The Pink Jeep's know what they are doing. It's the idiots in rentals and Hummers clogging that trails that you have to watch out for.

Welcome to the Forums .
We may not make it ether lol, If the USFS keeps closing everything with all the fire danger. We have plans to go to Ouray, Co around labor day for 3 or 4 days but prob gonna miss out that one this year. As of right now we are still going to Moab in Oct for a 5 days, but AZ & CO are pending do to fire session and USFS closures.

Haha I hadn't realized I hadn't posted here before. I guess I've been lurking too long...

I'm finding a shortage of weekends this Summer it seems. Colorado is going to have to happen one of two weekends in July or sometime in August. I'd love to go up for the leaves changing in September, but I have Elk and Deer hunts covering most of the weekends that month. We'll just have to see.

Moab in October sounds fun though.

I'll post up a thread when I get some dates nailed down. I'm thinking a Thur-Sun stay, heading up Wednesday night after work. I've never been before so I'm hoping someone will go who knows the trails better than I do, to plan routes that make sense. I have the Wells books, but sometimes it's hard to judge how long a trail might take, and which trails are good return trips.

Blackbear/Imogene is a must though.

Once you do, you will want to go every year. Absolutely amazing trails breath taking scenery. You can make it as hard core or mellow as you want, just a great time.

Any of the trails in the San Juan Mnt's are sure to please, Blackbear if is F'ing crazy scary no photo's can do it justice but a must do for sure.

There are four trails around that area that are on the Jeep Badge of Honor site:

Engineer Pass (Rated 5-6)
Imogene Pass (4-6)
Black Bear Pass (4-6)
Ophir Pass (3-4)

that I would like to do.

I've been to Moab in Oct, it is nice. And a perfect excuse to escape the Balloon Fiasco.

If you haven't gone on one before, have you thought about the Ouray, CO. Jeep jamboree. I think you can hit all of those except Black Bear Pass.
