I was thinking a little trip to Sedona (let my wife shop, then we go wheeling) would be neat... It is mostly slickrock, right? Is it still legal to wheel on the trails around there or do the J**p tour weenies own them all now?

The jeep tours don't own anything... they pay for permits to use the land. It's national forest service last I checked.

Ive heard most of the cool stuff is now off limits. Ill double check. Anything the Jeep tours do is practically graded road. <IMG SRC="smilies/sleep.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/sleep.gif" border="0">

My mom and I took my Taco up and ran the Broken Arrow trail on Mother's Day. It wasn't hard but the scenary was wonderful. There was a little section of slick rock that was fun to play on for a while. The Pink Jeeps stopped to watch the crazy Toyota play <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> . It was a nice trail to see some sites and do a bit of hiking.

This from the Arizona Virtual Jeep Club web site:


Trails
Broken Arrow

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Trail Rating: 2.5+ Location: Near Sedona

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Broken Arrow is a fun trail with great scenery. A stock Jeep can make this run and there are areas for those with built rigs to test and flex their suspension, such as the Crack. Pay attention to the signs, as part of this trail is a one-way loop.

A lot of Pink Jeeps share the trail so please put your best foot forward while representing our club. For many of the passengers on those Jeep tours, you are the first real off-roader they have ever seen (gosh, that is a scarey thought!) You will find that most of the pink drivers are pretty cool!

The Devil's Staircase is fun, and some members have been known to run it bottom-to-top. If you do, please post a look-out at the top to prevent someone from coming down while you are trying to go up.

It usually takes a couple of hours to make the loop, which allows ample time for pictures and a stop at Chicken Point for lunch (you did bring lunch, didn't you?)

Enjoy and remember to TREAD Lightly!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How to get there:
Go North from Phoenix on I-17 and take Exit 298 (Highway 179 to Sedona). Follow Highway 179 North towards Sedona. You will pass through Oak Creek. Continue on Highway 179. Approximately 13 miles from leaving the interstate, look for a tar road on your right with a Broken Arrow sign pointing the way to the trail. The trail really starts about a 1/4 mile down the road after you weave your way through a small residential area.

____________________________

We just did this trail about a month ago-
It's got some great places to play- the "crack" offers some radical flexing-
it's just past the section where you can drive around the knob. Try to go up the Devil's Stair Case!! Like they say,post a look out at the top, the Pink Jeeps are using the trail.

If you don't see the arrow sign the street name is Morgan Trail.
