Highlight: Jacks Canyon Road
This off-road trail is not about the paved road within the city, but the one at the top of the Canyon along the southern edge of Schnebly Hill. This portion of the road is a rocky dirt off-road trail with some moderate challenges. It is also becoming overgrown in some areas due to the light use it sees. Getting to the end of the road, followed by a short hike provides some excellent views of Jack's Canyon from the top of the Mogollon Rim. You'll also get a good view of Munds Mountain Wilderness Area, which provide a nice view of rock faces and green forests.

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).
