Lowerumble I just picked up my new 2013 Rubicon and am staying in Maricopa, near Phoenix for a week. Anyone know of any club crawls or anything going on? Anyone feel like going out?

xdbltrblx Plenty of places to go. I would suggest willow springs and pyeatt draw. Two very cool trails.

So many places to go, about 2 hours max in just about all directions from Valley.....Sedona, Payson, the Rim, Globe area, Flagstaff, even Tucson......nooooo not Tucson, you'll be a Devil not a Wildcat, first lesson to living in AZ
His ratings are rated harder than they actually are.

Very much like (maybe, noticing your forum name "Beaver") being a beaver rather than a duck Oregon State vs. University of Oregon.

Most importantly is mutual passion for Jeeps.

CapnRich22 yeah and if you get tired of the sand and rocks, the mogollon rim isn't far away and its 8000+ ft elevation and pine trees and tight trails i like going up there in the summer, i just got back from the north rim of the grand canyon and caught a fallen tree to the fender and dented it up haha but it was great times, beautiful country there and almost 9000 ft
08-10-2012 03:59 PM
BeaverJeeper sounds like i'll need more armor!
08-10-2012 12:08 PM
unclesamsmisguidedchild Trust me it does. If not pinstriping watch out for the rocks that just jump out at ya.
08-10-2012 06:30 AM
BeaverJeeper oh wow! never would have thought. i don't think my jeep has a spot for another pinstripe! lol
08-09-2012 01:38 PM
Rogue-Tracker Lots of Arizona pin striping if you are having a good time with your off road adventures. Wife had a fit with the first few scratches but now just looks forward to the adventure. She now plans were we will go every weekend.

i'm pumped to see some rocks! and some sand! and maybe i can go wheeling and not have to clean out twigs and leaves that are in every nook and cranny!
Lol you will still have to do that arizona pinstriping is everywhere. And the bad part about our twigs is they all have thorns.

Rogue-Tracker My wife and I summer in Oregon and wheel the Tillamook State Forest as well as trails in Eastern Oregon and Southern Washington. The last three winters have been spent in Arizona exploring off road trails every weekend from Wickenburg south to the border. Usually start out Good Year, Phoenix, Mesa Area then Tucson, Benson. This year most likely run southeast from Portland Oregon through Idaho, Utah and New Mexico then work our way back up from Yuma. As mentioned everything brown but a lot of great trails with any kind of complexity you might be looking for.

RatherBNarizona check out Sycamore Creek as well... my favorite.

desertgoose I'll suggest the back way to crown king. We had 30+ vehicles head up that way a week ago and all obstacles have a bypass to the side if you aren't comfortable. Google the town, I know between now and early October they are having both a rib and chili contest.(different weekends of course) It turns into an all day thing, 4-6 hours up and 2 hours back home by the I-17. The rest of the time is always enjoyed at the saloon.

JoeBot13 Start with the Apache Trail ... just outside of Phoenix ... I'll be honest its just a well maintained dirt road ... no challenge whatsoever but its a good start with great views ... it leads you up north and towards roosevelt lake ... and if you keep following it will take you up into the white mountains ...

Check this link out also ... Az game and fish dept's website with ohv areas ... tons of stuff in and around Phx ... get up north as soon as you get a chance though!

desertgoose There are plenty of great trails around here that I haven't even had the chance to see within an hour of PHX... yet. Just depends what you are looking for, but summer time is best to wheel up north.

ryanmar Pick up this book-

Guide to Arizona Backroads & 4-Wheel Drive Trails by Charles A. Wells. I got it off Amazon for $15 I think. Book has 75 trails all over the state and has sub categories (Difficulty, location, etc) as well. Very well detailed
07-26-2012 04:49 PM
unclesamsmisguidedchild Not to mention Florence is close as well.
07-26-2012 03:42 PM
BeaverJeeper awesome! good to hear!
07-26-2012 11:45 AM
ferninAZ I just got back from Sedona which is not in Phoenix but close enough. Beautiful up there. Very much something that should be explored if you are in the area or headed to the Grand Canyon.
07-26-2012 10:23 AM
Rockjeep94 Very wrong there are trails everywhere. Its hard to google map a trail when everything is brown and looks the same.
