If you're familiar with the valley, think of a triangle. Take Dynamite E from Pima till it ends at the Tonto entrance. Hang a left and go curvy road straight till that ends at Camp Creek. Rio Verde will be on your right (totally barricaded) - go left and have a ball all the way up to before you hit Bartlett Dam Rd. it's in between there somewhere. Then head west a mile or so to the transmission lines, then play on all the trails between there and where you started at Pima and Dynamite.
Here's a vid. Go play. Don't squish the quads. : )
TRAILS - On this one, at about the 2:21 mark, I see a new trail, hang a right, and decide to go check it out!
Been ridin trails on anything that moves since I was a kid. When your wheeling (particularly by yourself!) in a vehicle you also drive to work, ALWAYS keep in the front of your mind, this question: Can I back out of this place, that I'm at, right now? (Without mangling my daily driver)
When the answer becomes, "I don't know", you may JUST have gone too far. : )
Well, where I was "at" at the end there, was more of a crossroad. It's fairly easy going in and; I was very mindful of the stone walls inches from my nice black paint. Especially the ones by the bends - so I knew it would be tough, but probably doable (cant memorize everything) to put the trans in R and crawl back.

Crossroad: Keep going? Jeep's already got tons of desert pinstripes anyway, but from plants, not stone. I walked up another 50 yards and, if I was open to adding desert rock stripes, or maybe a spotter would have helped, I could have kept going at least that much further. But where I stopped, if I had gone 10 yards further I'd have to commit.
So yep, I threw it in reverse and floored it all the way back out without putting a scratch on it! : ) Uh. No. It was a painstaking and methodical (almost autocorrected to mythological - it was that too) few minutes. Not a lot of fun when you're just wondering which panel is going to take it first. : )
Impressed myself. Did get out with zero damage.
Lastly, if you're like me. You're ALWAYS looking for places along the trail, even if it is for an 11 point turn, to flip it around. : ) Thus, thumbnail. That spot was only about 100 yards, and 2 turns back. Not the whole 1.8 miles. : )
- EnWJoy -
Yeah - between app crashes and wifi static, it's a 8/+€#!!
EnWJoy the trail!
