JEEP, OHV & ATV
IN GILA COUNTY, ARIZONA
Start with a 20-mile Sonoran vista across iconic Saguaro Cacti -- follow your choice of Forest Service Roads, Jeep trails or two-tracks through chaparral and pinyon-juniper hills to our high elevation forests of ponderosa pine, fir, maple and aspen. Whether your chariot of choice is a Jeep, OHV or ATV – Gila County has well-graded dirt roads, 4WD trails, and rock-crawling 4X4 challenges.
Gila County encompasses 4,800 square miles - more than half within National Forest crisscrossed by dirt roads, unmaintained two-tracks that lead to old mine claims – and granite routes for those with rugged rock shocks. Some trails access deep into wild landscapes, others hug mountainsides enroute to cobalt-blue lakes, abandoned silver mines - and pine forests home to elk, deer and turkey. Whether its a short out-and-back picnic, or a multi-day journey - backcountry beckons with abundant camping. Sleep beneath a million stars – civilization feels faraway, but you’re close enough for help – if needed.
Gas-up your 4x4 or OHV, check that spare tires are sturdy – bring your GPS, maps and plenty water -- and your sense of adventure for scenic trails and breathtaking scenery!
