Woodpecker Trail Arizona

Florence, Arizona

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.

Yampa Bench Road - Maybell, Colorado
Technical Rating: 1-2
Difficulty: Easy
Length: 42.0 Miles
Duration: about 3 hours
Status: Open

Yampa Bench Road

Maybell, Colorado

The Yampa Bench Road offers amazing panoramic views in a beautiful and remote part of Colorado. The switchbacks and smooth red dirt straight-aways lead you to significant historical sites and stunning seclusion on the floor of the canyon at the confluence of the Green River and the Yampa River in Echo Park. Steamboat Rock, visible from the Echo Park Campground is the centerpiece of Dinosaur National Monument. Pictured left is the view from the Harding Hole Overlook (waypoint 11) a popular stop along the Yampa Bench Road. As you stand on the point of Harding Hole Overlook, you contemplate the time it took for the Yampa River to carve the landscape laid out before you. Listen as the canyon's resident swallows and swifts dive through the air overhead and the only other sounds you hear are the rapids, the breeze and a distant 'moooooo'.

Yankee Boy Basin  - Ouray, Colorado
Technical Rating: 1-4
Difficulty: Easy
Length: 9.4 Miles
Duration: about 2 hours
Status: Partially Open

Yankee Boy Basin

Ouray, Colorado

Picture the grandeur of Colorado, and the area that comes to mind may certainly be Yankee Boy Basin. This spectacular area has been immortalized in many landscape photos and calendars of Colorado mountains. Yankee Boy Basin offers something for most anyone that makes the trek into its mountains. From some of the most lush and beautiful evergreen forests one can imagine, seemingly infinite fields of wildflowers that stretch from peak to peak in the later part of July, to stunning craggy peaks that stand watch over the area, including the formidable 14,158 foot Mt. Sneffels. In addition to the natural wonders of Yankee Boy Basin, this area once held some of the richest mining history in the state of Colorado. Still active gold and silver mines contrast the approximately 130 year old mining ruins present from a bygone era. More information about the mining industry in the area as well as splendid photographs of the mines working in their heyday can be found at Miningartifacts.org

Idaho Springs, Colorado

Situated in the Arapaho National Forest and close to Denver, Colorado, the Yankee Hill 4X4 network is filled with many four-wheel drive trails, but Yankee Hill itself is the crown jewel, and hence, the area's name. This is an excellent off-road trail for either beginners or those just looking to escape the city while being in the heart of mining country with high altitude views. While many refer to the area as Yankee Hill, this is the actual route that gives you the thrill of a moderate hill climb along with views of James Peak, Mt. Bancroft, as well as Mount Evans.
