Highlights

Highlight: Rolls OHV FR 1343
The Rolls OHV Area is a special place in the Phoenix Valley that offers some breathtaking locations that are mostly accessible by stock 4x4 vehicles. You can pick a shady spot under a tree or put up a canopy right on the water and relax. The area is very popular and it's a good idea to get there early if you want a beachfront spot at one of the coves on Saguaro Lake. The trail has many hazards along the way, including the typical desert predators so please be cautious when outside the vehicle. You can spend a weekend exploring the area while camping at one of the coves. Follow one of the arteries leading north to the Four Peaks region for some spectacular panoramas, returning later to the cove, for dinner and a bonfire on the shoreline. This short trail is an access point to many trails in the area.

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 https://www.xploremor.net to follow us and for opportunities to join us on our adventures.
