Highlight: Boulder Bypass
Young, Arizona is one of those isolated towns in the mountains that time has almost forgotten. The region is scattered with wonderful easy 4x4 trails that may hold hidden secrets. This particular by-pass trail from Haigler to Young, allows you to avoid the pavement through town but also catch a glimpse of some very unique and massively large boulders. They seem to have fallen out of the sky and landed in this small area. You can park or camp nearby to explore some of these large anomalies. Boulder Bypass is a locals shortcut to get into Young without having to travel on Hwy. 288. While the trail may not be challenging, it's a great location for a remote camping experience while having access to Young and the Haigler Creek area.

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. Please visit our website to follow us and for opportunities to join us on our adventures.
