Painted Rock Dam and Sonoran National Monument

Easy riding when dry. Can be tricky in the wet. Make sure you know where you are going before you take off in the desert. There are many unmarked turns and it can very easy to get off the trail. This ride skirts sensitive wilderness areas so STAY ON THE TRAIL! Spectactular scenery awaits around every corner!

Table Mesa Road, Humbolt Mt Lookout and Seven Springs Road
New River AZ

Seven Springs Road from Carefree is easy fast graded dirt road. Same with the drive up to Humbolt Lookout, which provides spectacular 360 degrees views of Horseshoe Lake and the surrounding area. Table Mesa Road can be easy to moderate depending on recent weather events.

Cave Creek to Prescott via Seven Springs and Bloody Basin Roads
Prescott AZ

Great easy ride. Fast graded dirt roads. Scenery is better traveling from west to east. Crossing the Agua Fria River near Cordes Junction could be a problem after heavy rains. Otherwise the crossing is usually a trickle.
