Check out Arizona Virtual Jeep Club. They have some organized trips and can provide you with more information. You will have a blast exploring as there are tons of trails and historic places to check out. You will want to head towards the high country to escape the heat.

I live just 15 mins north of Avondale.

I live in the east valley, I'm not to sure about anything in the West valley where you're going to be, in there east there are tons of "stock friendly" trails I took my jeep on when it was stock, the historical "Apache Trail", which you can see videos of on YouTube, which is an awesome drive with lots of history. The superstition mountains have tons of little trails that spur off the Apache trail that are fun to explore. You'll get a chance to visit some of the Lakes out there which are beautiful.

Four peaks, the big tall mountain to the east, you can go almost all the way to the top and its the tallest mountain in Central Arizona, and that's an awesome trip for a stock jeep, also has many spur trails that breakoff, very easy to follow, well traveled, you may only come across a few other off-roaders, if you go on a weekend there will be quads all over the place but gets quieter as you near the top. Definitly a blast, nothing to crazy, but good for a stock jeep.

I here there is a bunch of stuff in North Phoenix, and I hear Florence, to the east, also in the superstition mountains, is a challenge and is more for trail rigs.

You are coming to the right place my friend. There are more trails to run here in AZ than in most other states combined. To the west of the city you have the White Tank Mountains that have some good trails for the more stockish jeeps. To the north of the city you have the Table Mesa area that has a little something for everyone. To the East of the city you have the Florence Junction/Middle Gila area that has more trails for everyone. A good run for a stockish vehicle is the Lake Pleasant to Crown King run which is about 5 hours, but worth it when you get to the top. Then Tucson has some good low level trails. Basicly you can find trails for all skill levels all over the state.

As mentioned check out the AZvjc www.azvirtualjeepclub.com

I'm out on the east side. The Rolls/Four Peaks area is a good run. Florence has tons of good runs. When you get out here, drop me a PM and I'll take you out somewhere. It's a hike from Avondale, though.

Lastcool is out that way.

Just moved to Chandler a couple months ago. Our church has a group that goes out once a month or so. They go by C.O.R.E..

another one from Prescott Valley, (Humboldt actually). I grew up around here and have enjoyed several trails around phoenix and up her in the prescott area. Just recently purchased my third jeep and intend on slowly making the necessary modifications. Pending the money. Hope to see you on the trail some time.

Another one from Prescott Valley here. Great trails here in AZ.

If you make it up north, here are a couple of good clubs:

Welcome! You're more on the East side in Tempe than the West side. That means you're closer to Florence and all the nice trails there.
