Highlight: FR 11
Deep in the heart of the Mazatzal wilderness is a trail full of Saguaro fields, washes, and great camp sites. If this trail sounds like fun to you, then you need to head up to Four Peaks and check out Forest Road 11. While it doesn't offer the most jaw-dropping views, it does offer seclusion and plenty of intersecting trails to entertain your inner explorer.

Mapping Crew - Arizona

While living in the Midwest, I developed a passion for searching out new trails and hidden spots. That passion continues to this day in the beautiful southwestern United States. My wife and I are full-time RVers who travel from region to region exploring every nook and cranny we can find. While we're getting to know the locals, we gain insight into these areas, then passing on that knowledge onto our subscribers. We truly enjoy traversing long, beautiful back-country routes with epic campsites, but we equally enjoy pushing the limits on difficult rock crawling trails. Our rig was built to do everything and that's what we hope to share with our subscribers. Please visit our website to follow us and for opportunities to join us on our adventures. You can also view our vast video library on YouTube XPLOREMOR.
