Highlight: Buckskin Mountain Trail - AKA Back Way To The Desert Bar - Parker
Who doesn’t love going off the beaten path, the road less traveled? Buckskin Mountain Trail is just that, when leaving The Desert Bar, this trail offers drivers a way out of the bar that is relatively remote and at the same time offers some of the best sunset views of the valley. This is no easy 4x4 trail, the trail is a solid intermediate path with several long loose hill climbs and even a waterfall obstacle. Thus the next time you are looking to spice up your drive to The Desert Bar or thinking about taking a different way home, check out Buckskin Mountain Off-road Trail near Parker Arizona.

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.
