Trail Information


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.

Great technical trail and about the same as last year, I still think it should be rated a solid 5. It was easier to navigate after having work done (axles & lockers, steering linkage, gearing and bigger tires) on my rig last summer, didn't really bottom out this time.

This trail was very technical and fun, I ran it from northeast to southwest. I feel the rating should to be increased to a solid 5, maybe even a 5-6. I was in a 2008 Wrangler JKU with a 4" lift and 33" A/T tires and barely made it through. I've been on trails rated at a 5-6 (Back Way To Crown King twice) that were about the same although this trail did seem a little more technical/harder. I did come down HARD (added a new dent to it) on my passenger side rock rail at one point. Looking forward to running this trail again in the future but not until after I re-gear, add a locker and 35" M/T tires.

Drove by a few months ago while playing on the trails. Someone made nicer tombstones.
