Highlights

Highlight: Three Corners
Have you ever wanted to stand in three states at once? Well pack up your 4x4 and head out into the Arizona desert to plant your feet at the state line junction for Arizona, Nevada, and Utah. In November 2016 there was an updated marker installed, way out in the desert to signify their meeting point. This long 4x4 trail will take you right to the point where you'll find a decorative placard and flags from all three states. While there are a couple of ways to get to the monument, this route is the straightest way there and it offers a couple of mild challenges for stock 4x4's. The trail travels up a large mesa above the town of Mesquite, where you'll have beautiful panoramas of the town and surrounding mountains. The trail accesses numerous other trails that can be combined for a truly enjoyable all-day adventure in the desert.

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.
