Highlights

Highlight: Constellation Road
The Wickenburg, Arizona region has a rich history in mining and cattle ranching. Constellation Road, one of the main routes in the region, allows users to easily pass several old mines and a couple working ranches before finally reaching the Hassayampa River Canyon Wilderness Region. The area has many unmarked mines with one of the largest being Monte Cristo Mine where many of its original structures are still standing. The trail ends at the Hassayampa Wilderness Region where there are several miles of great hiking through some beautiful and remote canyons. The region has numerous unmarked "jeep trails" that seem to crisscross everywhere in the desert, with some hiding desert secrets. The trail connects with Corner Spring which joins with Robert's Spring, making for a great all day 4x4 loop.

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.
