Highlight: The Duke
Welcome to near buggy territory! Whether you have a built Jeep Wrangler or an insane Toyota truggy, this trail is going to make you work for that gold star. Even though this off-road trail is a short one, unless your 4wd is working, your lockers are spot on, and your tires are large and deflated, you are not going to make it. With one of the single hardest waterfalls near Parker Arizona, this trail is going to punish your 4x4 like it has never been. This showstopper has one of the most epic 15+ foot tall waterfalls with insane large holes, large enough to swallow a 44 inch tire like it was nothing. Even the most epic offroad enthusiast might turn around for this one and take a different road out. Thus, if you are bit insane, and you are looking for something that will either give you bragging rights or a good, bad story, The Duke near Parker Strip on the Colorado River and more importantly near The Desert Bar is the place for you.

1. Duke Trailhead at Deliverance (0 mi)
The trail slips off to the west away from Deliverance. At first it doesn't seem like anything special as you follow this narrow canyon.

Josh Noesser

Mapping Crew - California

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.
