Another one of those, "not really a shortcut 4x4 trails," 3 Slabs may have been named after early residents named this trail due to the finding of 3 head stones found along the trail. Near Parker, Arizona, this fun little off-road trail is packed with rock crawling and wash driving while the trail cuts the corner on Cienega Springs Road. The trail is hard enough that it could pose a challenge to a lightly modified vehicle thus this is a fun little side trail for people who love rock crawling when heading out to some of the other trails like The Duke, The Duchess, or The Desert Bar. The next time you are with a group and want to spice up your boring drive down Cienega Springs Road, take the "not so shortcut" down 3 Slabs and have a little fun.
Take Cienega Springs Road 1.0 miles from Highway 95. The turn off is to the east and can be found at Waypoint 6 on the Cienega Springs Road trail review.
Please note the exit for this trail is behind bushes an can easily be missed.
Joshua Noesser grew up in Southern California but has lived in different parts of the country during his young adult life. Josh was first turned to four wheeling when he road with one of his friends dad up Surprise Canyon in the Panamint Valley at age14. After nearly 3 different roll overs later and a half dozen intense waterfalls, Josh was hooked. At 16 he purchased his first Jeep a CJ 7 and by 17 was putting his first locker in it.
Currently, Josh is the owner and CEO of Nybble, an IT Solutions Company based in Orange County, California. Nybble isn't your normal IT company where everyone stays in and plays video games. Nybble's average company trip is out on the trails since a good amount of his staff enjoy wheeling too. As Josh likes to say, he offers the only IT Company with the ability to provide services in extreme locations. "If you want a server at the top of The Hammers, we will take care of that for you."
Today you can find Josh out on the trail behind the wheel in one of his three different off-road vehicles. See the vehicles below for more information.
If you ever run into Josh, please say high, he is a very friendly person and is always happy to have a new person join the group.
