Highlight: Smasher Canyon
With a name like Smasher Canyon, you have to expect it to have its challenges. Well, this one does not disappoint. Smasher is a popular rock crawling trail in the high desert of central Arizona near the small town of Clarkdale. Be prepared because it offers an incredible challenge for even the best-built vehicles. The white stone ledges and large boulders really push you and your rig to the limit. The ledges and boulders that are found throughout the entire trail average 2 feet tall and require a good spotter to keep from being high centered all the time. The difficulty also goes up because the trail doesn't have any by-passes. So get ready for a long day on the rocks and bring your A-game for this one.
