Trail Overview

This is a great technical trail with many obstacles available for the less faint of heart. Secluded in the desert between The CAP Canal North of Vistancia and Carefree Highway. Filled with awesome washes, 24" obstacles, blind Steep Climbs, and plenty of alternate routes around the obstacles. This is also a fantastic night ride that actually leads to the Boulders OHV area and Cow Creek Road (Crown King). Hard to imagine such awesome off-road trails being so close to civilization.


This trail is technical including steep pitch and roll angles.
