Highlights

Highlight: East Pocket Road
If you are a weekend explorer or want an area that can serve as a short expedition run, you've come to the right trail. East Pocket Road by itself is not terribly exciting, especially at the north end; however, it provides access to many incredible destinations, including the Mogollon Rim. Here you can find breathtaking views from above the red rocks and dirt found in the northern Verde Valley below, along with one particular spot known as the Edge of the World with awesome dispersed, primitive camping spots. At the very end of the road, you'll find the East Pocket Lookout Tower, where you hike the final half-mile on foot to see the tower. S

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 a now-extinct website 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. I also run my own online marketing and web content company The Rotisory Foundation (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).
