  1. A small group and I just completed a Casner Mountain run. We had some warm but enjoyable weather all day. It was good to see some familiar faces and meet some members for the first time. I enjoyed teh day out and hop eevery one else did too. A big shout out to @MzPriss and Bill for tail-gunning, I appreciate it! Those in attendance were: @MzPriss @LaZorraRoja @Sputternutz @Dcoleaz The road to the Casner Mountain trail was pretty uneventful. Casner Mountain trail itself was a little different. The road to the gate was indicator of things to come. Lots of wash outs, ruts and pretty rocky to the gate. Along the way we were joined by a whole bunch of grasshoppers that made themselves known. They liked hanging out on my windshield and side windows, which wound up creeping my wife out. 🤣 The switchbacks on the way up are pretty chewed up, rocky and rutted in multiple places now. It was still a fun ride up to the top with views that were good indicators of teh elevation gains we were making. Because of the conditions I kept the pace a little slower and kept a better eye on the turns. Once at the top we stopped and took in the views, all of which are amazing. The ride along the ridge-backs that divide Sycamore Canyon on the west from the Red Rock Secret Mountain Wilderness on the east always has some spectacular views. We stopped along the way and took in the views directly across from Sycamore Point. Overall once we got up top the trail is in relatively good shape, nothing too challenging. Once we reached the end of Casner we meandered our way across FR 538 where we found a nice shady spot near Power Tank for lunch. We had lunch there while being serenaded by a herd of cows that were hanging out. After lunch we made our way out across multiple trails through various types of terrains finally taking FR 237 and ending at I-17 early in afternoon. Thanks again to those who joined us today!

Apache Maid Area Exploration- Camping At Buckhorn Cabin Saturday June 3rd & Sunday June 4th Primitive Tent Camping | No Facilities Join me for 2 days of easy low mileage exploration on this overland style run.

    Camp Verde To Mogollon Rim Overland Style Run Friday June 16th & Saturday June 17th Primitive Tent Camping | No Facilities Join me for 2 days and approximately 105 miles of exploration on this overland style run. This route will take us from Camp Verde to the Mogollon Rim where we will camp. I have pieced this together using various trails in the area. Most of these trails are easy to moderate based on my research, nothing too technical is involved. There some rocky two track sections mixed for good measure. Extra fuel is not necessarily required, however, if you have the ability to bring some it is worth considering doing so. Note this is an Offroad Passport Club members-only event. View membership options → Run details and sign ups can be found here.
  4. DATE CHANGED FROM SATURDAY 5/20 to SUNDAY 5/21! Join us for a challenging climb up to an incredible scenic overlook and abandoned asbestos mine. This moderate rated trail runs through a burned area and is therefore prone to washouts, large eroded ditches, and inconveniently placed boulders and downed trees. It's also extremely narrow in places, so no full-size rigs please. Note: This is our second 2023 run on this trail, members that were on the standby list for the first trip have sign-up priority for this one. Click here for the trip report from our last attempt...

  5. Join me for a short day run on the moderate 4x4 trail "Crapshoot" in the Table Mesa area. This loop should make for some great views of the current spring bloom. Most stock high-clearance 4x4's with a low-range option on the transfer case can make this trail, though sway-bar disconnects and a small lift are recommended and will make things much easier. Total newbies may be intimidated by some of the steep loose climbs and small ledges, but folks with even a little experience on moderate trails should be fine. Click here for details or to sign-up...

The obstacles range from mild to wild, making this the ultimate "choose your own adventure" trail in the Valley. Click here for details & to RSVP...

  18. FYI - The name is a joke, there's nothing even close to "formal" about this event! UPDATE: The location has changed to a dry/dispersed campsite instead of the campground, see below! This year the party is in Cottonwood, AZ! We've got plenty of fun planned (even beyond the fireside shenanigans and general good time!).

Location: Our original campground reservation was canceled due to COVID-19... Location confirmed! We've found a dispersed camp spot accessible by higher-clearance trucks/SUVs and RVs. It's 30 minutes east of Camp Verde, just off AZ Hwy 260 on Forest Road 142H. I don't believe the Forest Road is signed with a number, so you'll need the map or GPS coords below. Google Maps link...
