Highlights

Highlight: Rolls OHV FR 1863
The Rolls OHV Area is a special place in the Phoenix Valley offering breathtaking views that are accessible by stock 4x4 vehicles. This particular trail offers a chance to explore some of the narrow canyons of The Rolls region. This trail and region in general is popular with the atv and dirt bike community because of the sandy washes and narrow winding canyons. You can spend a weekend exploring the area while camping at one of the coves on Saguaro Lake. Or follow one of the arteries leading north to the Four Peaks region for some spectacular panoramas, returning later to the coves, for dinner and a bonfire on the shoreline. The Coves and Rolls Area is always under threat of closure because of misuse, so please always pack in - pack out, completely extinguish fires and follow the designated trails. You DO need a Tonto Day pass to park in the paved parking lot nearby. You DO NOT need a Tonto Pass when you are off-road, at the lake coves or camping in the desert. The trail has many hazards along the way, including the typical desert predators so please be cautious when outside the vehicle.

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 pass on that knowledge to our subscribers. We truly enjoy traversing long, beautiful back-country routes with epic campsites, but we equally enjoy pushing the limits on challenging rock crawling trails. Our rig was built to do everything, and that's what we hope to share with our subscribers.
