An out-of-the-way adventure sure to please any serious four-wheeler. Pass through mining country near the Desoto Mine. A wild roller-coaster ride across some of Arizona’s most remote backcountry. Pass through narrow creek beds with ever-changing boulder fields, then cross a series of ridges on a narrow, winding trail. Washed-out sections create hold-your-breath, tippy situations, especially for high-centered vehicles. Descents and climbs are very steep at times. Scratchy brush is guaranteed to produce Arizona pinstripes on any new paint job. Route-finding is sometimes confusing. Flash-flooding possible. Go prepared and travel with experienced four-wheelers. Help is a long way off.
