to everyone who made any suggestions for us, thanks! Bullhead was awesome. There are tons and tons of places to go off-road, we just couldn't fit enough trails in! I loved it. It was a great chance to get our feet wet, so to speak, in off-road driving.
We first went to the Arizona visitors center, because I thought my wife would enjoy the burros in Oatman. I said to the woman at the desk, "We want to go to Oatman, but we want the dirt road there.." she didn't let me finish, interrupting with, "Oh. No you don't. They don't maintain that road." I was like, "DUH! That's why I want to take it Lady!" She went on to explain how perilous a journey it would be on the dirt road, which is (Silver Creek Rd.), and my wife and I both looked at each other, smiled, and walked out.
We ended up taking Silver Creek Rd., and if I had missed out on that trip I would be so upset. It was great. For anyone who hasn't been, this is like 4 lanes wide, with no challenge to speak of. A Toyota Corolla passed us going the other way. People live on that road. That lady at the visitor center has no clue, and probably hasn't ever been on the road.
Now Silver Creek Rd. is super tame, but there are tons of trails and get you off the main road. We drove around those hills for several hours and had a great time. Az visitor center lady gets an F- and a status of Epic Fail.
