Highlight: Camp Wood Road
Camp Wood Road gives the adventurous overlander a smorgasbord of all that central Arizona has to offer. From the grassy plains of Williamson Valley to the pine forests of the Prescott National Forest, you experience Arizona’s ranching history with views of the historic Cross U and Yolo ranches. The central Arizona experience continues with miles of dirt road through high desert chaparral, with its pygmy forest of junipers, before descending into Wild Horse Basin, which, with its backdrop of the majestic Shipp Mountains, reminds one of Colorado. No authentic Arizona experience is complete without a copper mine, and this journey does not disappoint ending in the copper mining hamlet of Bagdad with its giant copper mine, formed in 1882. The remoteness of Camp Wood Road gives the journey a special flavor. With constantly changing biomes and scenery, the miles fly by. Try it for yourself.
