Heres a link to a book that is good start with the info you want "in the Jeep" when getting out to new areas that you are unfamiliar. "Guide"

Other sources can be found online too.
Be careful with those books unless it is updated to this year. There have been some changes regarding trails and closures here in AZ and you could get heavily fined and not to mention make those trying to fight to keep the trails open look real bad.

Lots of info here...if you search...otherwise just ask.

That route you took is amazing. Next time you can turn right when you get to the T and you can go out towards red creek or even go left after the right and cross the Verde river and go to fossil springs and then end up in Camp Verde or Strawberry.

Of course don't do that until the summer time as the water will be too high and fast with the rain and snow we are now getting up north.

If you want a trail guide I would be glad to show you around.

Definitely. Will do.

Thanks! I did not know that. I did go right and go a ways down the trail that was marked verde river but I didn't finish it because I was tired and didn't want to be falling asleep on the drive home.

Definitely will probably take you up on that sometime.

I don't mess around with that, if it says no trespassing or anything like that - I don't go in.
