New Trails: Arizona, Northeast

Thanks to a generous benefactor who loaned me their Arizona Trails Northeast Region book, the Arizona Trails master file has been upgraded with new descriptions and several new trails in the Northeast region. [For a free Google Earth file of this route see: Offroading Home: Arizona Trails]

All the Arizona Northeast Region trails now have directions to the starting and ending locations, in addition to the standard length, time and months open.

Each trail has a list of things to watch for or things to see as well as sources of where to find more information about the trails.

Those of you who select "open" when you click on the link (recommended, instead of "save") will automatically receive the new map upgrades. Those who have saved it on your computer will need to erase the old file — then merely select "open" when you click on the above link.

I will tell you in my way how the Indian sees things.   The white man has more words to tell you how they look to him, but it does not require many words to speak the truth.”
Chief Joseph

The new trails are: O'Leary Peak and O'Leary Basin. There are several others which have been given new placemarks where there have been found petroglyphs or other relics to see.

Especially take a look at the Canyon de Chelly (pronounced d'shay) trails. They are on Indian land and are simply chock full of abandoned dwellings and glyphs. Would make a great ride!

Learn A Little More

The book Arizona Trails Northeast Region is an excellent resource to plan an offroad trip in Arizona. Each route is accompanied by turn-by-turn navigational aids going in both directions and photos of sites along the way. If you are going to purchase it, please consider doing so using the links on this page. There will be no extra cost to you, but a portion will go to keeping this site going and the trails coming.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. I will, of course, be moderating all comments to make sure (a) they conform to the standards of good taste set forth by Offroading Home; and (b) nope that's pretty much it.
