Highlights

Highlight: Price Road
Price Road serves as the primary southern entry into the Florence OHV area. The road serves two separate communities that you pass along the route. There are numerous ranches and farms in this area because the Gila River runs adjacent to and sometimes part of the road. You will notice the old canal system along the early sections of the route; these are vital to the area farmers and residents. The views of the mountains on the eastern horizon will begin to grow closer as you travel the desert road. "The Town of Florence was founded in 1866 and is the sixth oldest European settlement in the state of Arizona. Florence is the county seat and is situated in the central portion of Pinal County, Arizona, about 45 minutes away from the Phoenix and Tucson metropolitan areas. Three major transportation corridors run through Florence, including Highway 287, Highway 79, and Hunt Highway. Many prominent recreational landmarks and areas of interest are in and around Florence. The Gila River is a prominent landmark that runs through historic Florence. The Gila River served as the northern border in the Gadsden Purchase in 1854. In addition, Box Canyon, Martinez Canyon, old Silverbell Mine, and many other sites to the east of Florence provide visitors with fantastic scenic views and an opportunity to hike, explore, off-road, or otherwise enjoy the Sonoran Desert. Also in the area are the Casa Grande Ruins, Lost Dutchman State Park, Boyce Thompson Arboretum State Park, Tom Mix Monument, and the Superstition Mountain Wilderness Area." source: http://www.florenceaz.gov/town-history

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 pass on that knowledge to our subscribers. We truly enjoy traversing long, beautiful back-country routes with epic campsites, but we equally enjoy pushing the limits on challenging rock crawling trails. Our rig was built to do everything, and that's what we hope to share with our subscribers.
