we just bought a house in Wickenburg, about 1 hour northwest of pheonix. i was wondering what good trails there are in my area. what i am looking for is mostly rockier intermidiate trails that would require a modified vehicle. also, are there any off road parks or clubs in the area?
its a ways. it depends how many people are in your group and their capabilities of course. it also depends on who is on the trail in front of you and how fast they are going. Most of this route is easy to moderate; however, there are a few difficult places that will challenge stock vehicles. The road has gotten worse over the years, especially the steepest part in the last four miles. Erosion has exposed more rocks and deep ruts have formed.
at a moderate pace, you could make it in about 5 hours maybe more.
its about a 46 mile trail from the carefree highway.
Everyone IS out to get you, if you just believe in yourself and try hard enough!
Have you been out to Box Canyon, just north of Wickenberg? You can go up thru most of Box Canyon and then follow the trails and eventually get to Stanton. Take 93 to Rincon Rd. Follow that until you get to the riverbed (the 2nd crossing, I believe).
i actually havent been down there but my parents bought a summer home and i am going down with them at the end of march. probably going to bring a jeep down so that's why i am wondering. thanks for the help.
A lot of good suggestions have been made already. Congrats on the new place
We have a book that covers Arizona trails, with 75 trails from all over the state. Most of the trails already mentioned are included, as well as many others in this book.
