Highlight: Woodpecker Trail
Woodpecker Mine Trail outside of Phoenix Arizona is well known for being a challenging and fun rock crawling opportunity for mildly modified vehicles. The trail has numerous optional rock obstacles that will push the limits of both driver and vehicle. The trail has a couple obstacles that have reputations for causing damage to even the best built rigs. The entrance will immediately let you know what you're in for. If you're not careful, the optional left line is quite challenging and can result in body damage or a broken window. The trail has many hazards along the way, including the typical desert predators so please be cautious when outside the vehicle. The area is also known for having numerous petroglyphs that are in remarkable condition. Keep your eye out while crawling through the wash for the black faced rocks with the ancient markings carved into them. The Woodpecker Mine was originally opened in 1937 and closed in 1952. It's main ore production was from silver and lead. It's now managed by a large mining corporation but the trail is ours to enjoy. Please be aware there are many active mining claims in the area that are considered out of bounds and should not be entered. The entire region is also home to many herds of cattle that can often pop up around a blind corner, so please be cautious around blind corners.
