Fry Canyon Trail is a beautiful forest road nestled in the mountains between Sedona and Flagstaff. It is a nice shortcut between I-17 and 89A to get you close to the forest roads on the west side of 89A, above the Mogollon Rim. It also provides a great place for camping, though it can be a bit crowded in the Summer; especially on weekends.
Starting Point: Head south from Flagstaff, Arizona
You can find this trail just of I-17 exit 333 on the west side as a frontage road in front of a Shell station.
Along 89A it's on the east side of the road about ten miles south of Flagstaff and about sixteen miles north of Sedona.
I've been writing for TrailsOffroad since August 2015. Before that, I had been off-road in places like central and northern Utah, east and west Texas, and central and northern Arizona. I've even driven off-road on an island in the Caribbean (the one time I've driven a Jeep off-road).
I joined TrailsOffroad because it combines my three favorite hobbies: Off-roading obviously; I've also been blogging for most of my life - even before it was done on the internet (ever heard of a dial-up BBS?) - and even wrote a political column for Examiner.com for a few years; I also have experience with building websites and promoting on social media. These experiences made writing for Trails Offroad a good fit for me, and I've been enjoying it very much.
When I'm not working at my IT job, or playing with my kids, I go on runs with a group of people who like to collaborate on [AZFJ.org](http://azfj.org), and run my own online marketing and web content company (my wife calls it my hobby business) [The Rotisory Foundation](http://rotisory.spaldam.com) (named after a BBS I used to run back in High School and College before the Internet became overwhelmingly popular).
I'm a big Toyota fan. I've owned two 4x4 Tacomas, an older 4x4 Toyota pickup, and I'm now on my second FJ Cruiser (the first was a TRD SE 6 speed, that I got rid of after my twins were born).
