New to AZ! I need some to do some wheeling!

I just moved to Arizona for college and I brought my WJ with me. Im below Sedona in Prescott and I need some places to wheel! With homework and all I can't get away forever, local would be best. Any help would be sweet

Look east 89A goes over it to Jerome.

Look up Smiley Rock. Something less agressive there's some neat offshoots from Perkinsville Road east of Chino Valley. (Theres the old Narrow Gauge road bed that paralells Perkinsvill Road) North of that there are some casual roads off of Verde Ranch from Paulden.

In the Bradshaws you can take Senator Highway and scoot over to Mayer.

There's always Bloody Basin too. You can scoot north to Fossil Creek and even ford the Verde at the Old Childs power station. There's even a hot springs there.

Buy a trails book. Arizona Trails by Peter Massey, Jeanne Wilson & Angela Titus is a good one (several, actually. They're broken down into regions) It's available at Barnes & Noble at the mall. About $25 each.

I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!

Take I-17 north to Table Mesa Road.Its just north of New River.Most people go to the west but you can go east also off the freeway.Get a TOPO Map at Map World if you want to see the roads there.

Yep stock would be okay.Of course roads change after every storm and such,so it would be pretty much check it out before you leap. The river bed is a quick sand area in some places.You just have to watch where you drive.
I had a stock 7 and drove all over that area from Gillette to Tip Top ghosttowns. Check out www.ghosttowns.com and get a couple books called Ghostowns of Arizona and Ghost Railroads of Central Arizona
