Highlights

Highlight: Rocky Draw
The trail system in Apache Sitgreaves National Forest is massive so it can be a challenge to find an easily accessible campsite. This easy gravel road brings you back into the Black Mesa region where there is vast history of early inhabitants and the settlers that came much later. This route travels past several great family and group campsites that can be accessed with a 2wd high clearance vehicle. There aren't any challenges along the route but rather ample opportunities to spot wild horses or hike one of the local trails.

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.
