Map Update: Arizona Trails - Central

This should make Arizona readers happy! All the trails in the most populated area of the state have been newly updated with complete descriptions. [ For a free Google Earth file of this route see: Arizona Trails ]

I've had the tracks in the master Arizona map file complete for over a year and have been trying to get around to all the typing necessary to complete the descriptions with distances, times, things to see etc. etc. etc..

Arizona Trails Central Region by Peter Massey et. al. to complete this portion of the project. If anyone knows where I can obtain a copy of the "Southern Region" I can complete the entire state.

travel is educational. It teaches you how to get rid of money in a hurry.”

Even though the Central Region is very close to the metropolitan areas of both Phoenix and Mesa, the trails seem quite a bit more difficult than the previous two regions.

There are mines, ghost towns, river washes and lots of mountains, with their attendant shelf roads, narrow passages and climbs. Not to mention a couple of trails leading to camping, fishing and boating.

Should keep you all busy for awhile. The climate is equivalent to most of Nevada so now is the time to ride - the winter.

The book Arizona Trails Central 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.
