Very easy in the summer months a 2 wheeled truck can do it, but in the winter months it can be tough there are parts of the trail that never get any sun, so the snow is high and frozen. I am part of the Yavapai Search & Rescue (Jeep Posse) there has been 4 rescues up there this snow season. You know the rule "never go alone" take another jeep with ya

**** it, GAS IT!

Both of the guides mentioned are good. Backcountry Adventures by Peter Massey and Jeanne Wilson will have a few more trails in your area. Arizona Backroads is easier to follow. Hope you are having fun if you stay for the summer all the forests in Arizona have unlimited roads and trails (even with the new regulations).

Time's fun when you're having flies.

Senator highway is a fun trail. also, there is a long *** trail/road (ignored old train route) that leads from Jerome to Williams. It's called Perkinsville road. It's a long trail, but there are many many beautiful sights. And some not so beautiful. It's only fun if you have the time to do it.

Also in Sedona, there is Broken Arrow Trail, and a couple others.

Out toward Skull Valley there are are many trails that I cant name off the top of my head.

If you feel like venturing a little farther out of your way, you can check out Box Canyon or Table mesa.

On senator hwy, once you make it to crown king, you can continue on the trail all the way down to Lake Pleasant down here in the valley.

Head down the 69 and go north on the I-17 about 3 miles from the junction and get off at Dugas road. take that road all the way into Strawberry. That is a fantastic trail with a good river crossing too.

Do your homework, and don't go anyplace you don't think you could get out of. You have tons of options from Prescott. and they are all good ones too.

Everyone IS out to get you, if you just believe in yourself and try hard enough!

well it depends really. Most "towns" not cities it seems to not be a issue. Here in havasu, we run about anything on the road. As long as it has plates and lights. I have seen open wheeled rigs here in town ever day. Prescott has done alot of growing since i was there last, about 18 years ago. But for a few inches I would think the local police wont care. If they do you will have to get some flares or fab up something on the cheep.

Arizona Revised Statutes says the whole tread MUST be covered. I'd worry about Prescott PD, BUT I'D WORRY ABOUT PRESCOTT VALLEY PD MORE!

PS, Hope you've already got a job lined up, because they're few and far between.

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

AZ revised statutes are WAY lenient with their vehicle laws. Don't even think twice about it. People ride their dune buggies and ATV's around town in these parts.

you gotta be really effing up to be stopped by PD in this state. PLUS the more rural the area, the more lenient the law is on this issue.

Everyone IS out to get you, if you just believe in yourself and try hard enough!

Are jobs really that hard to get? I'll be working in the HVAC/R industry. When I moved away in 2009 I had two jobs while I went to school. They were crappy jobs but...

Just curious.
