Highlight: FR 935
FR 935 winds through old-growth pine forests, crosses alpine meadows and passes through ranch land still worked by cowhands on sure-footed ponies. After you leave the pavement be sure to close the gate behind you. The trail immediately crosses a wide-open meadow with spacious campsites on both sides. The trail winds along the contours of this rugged landscape mostly smoothly but occasionally forcing you to choose a line to bypass protruding boulders. Often cows and calves are laying in the shade and watch idly as you roll by. Several small spur trails go off at angles along the way, so pay attention to the guide unless you are in the mood for some more exploring. Though in this beautiful country, side trips are often good trips. Before long FR 935 deposits you onto Stoneman Lake Road, a good route to other adventures in the area.

Hi! I'm Wade. After 43 years as a pilot, split evenly between flying fighters for the Air Force and Boeing 737s for the airlines, my feet are firmly planted on the ground. Seems I spent a lot of my flying time looking out the cockpit window thinking, "Yep, I could drive that trail." My trips range from a few days to a month. Most are solo in my silver 4Runner named Bullit. We range over all the southwest exploring remote places and trying to get as much dirt under the wheels as possible. Occasionally I get in some hiking, backpacking, and bushcraft as well. My most ambitious Overlanding plans include a trip to Tuktoyaktuk and Dead Horse when travel restrictions permit. Sharing my experiences as a member of the Trails Offroad crew, instructing at Overland Expo, and hosting the Gaia GPS Offroad podcast are true pleasures. Hope to see you on the trail soon.
