Highlights

Highlight: Roosevelt Vista
The Roosevelt Lake region within the Tonto National Forest is an outdoor enthusiasts paradise. There are countless trails leading you to scenic vistas but FR140 leads you quickly and easily to one of the best views in the region. This trail is an easy out and back scenic stop or an excellent camping location for exploring the other trails in this area. Roosevelt Vista leads you to a couple of different side trails, each with incredible vistas and campsites. Along the canyon rim, 800 feet above the Tonto Basin, you will find a couple campfire rings and several vantage points for photographs.

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 passing on that knowledge onto our subscribers. We truly enjoy traversing long, beautiful back-country routes with epic campsites, but we equally enjoy pushing the limits on difficult 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 https://www.xploremor.net to follow us and for opportunities to join us on our adventures.
