Trail Book for AZ

Is there a good guide to the trails in AZ? Moving out there next week and just wondered what is the best way to learn the trails.

There are a few good ones. The "Guide to Arizona Back roads is a good one.
I would recommend an Arizona Gazetteer too.

'78 CJ-7, 401 w/ headers, T-18, 35" muds, 4" lift, MSD ignition box, locked diffs.

Go to one of the book stores and get Ghosttowns of Arizona and Ghost Railroads of central Arizona. is a site also with info
If you've been to Pleasant already there's a road to Crown King there.Its about 25 mile trip with a burger and beer on the other end.You can also go there off I-17 and Bumblebee Road N. of Phoenix

I got one for graduation last year that I absolutely love. Gives you all kinds of info and is super easy to navigate. It also comes with coordinates to plug into a gps so that you know you're on the right trail. I can give you suggestions on a gps as well if you're at all interested. but the name of the book is "BACKCOUNTRY ADVENTURES" and then running down the side it says Arizona. It is written by Peter Masey and Jeanne Wilson great for all AZ trails up to a 5 or 6 I believe (beginner book). If you get it take it to staples or some place similar and have it spiral bound so it's easy to open and leave on the page.
