    I used to ride there too, but then they started kicking everyone out of there. When was the last time you rode out there?? I might hit it up this weekend just to check it out.

    Anyone else found anything good out in the west valley????

    If you're over on the East side 'Rolls' has sandy washes / desert terrain. You can ride the trail up and over Four Peaks if you head North.

    Rolls OHV Area

    Four Peaks

    It's what I consider a 'chill' ride.

    Desert Wells is pretty boring but you can haul ass out there. Lots of long flat trails in a pretty good size area. You need the State Trust Land permit to ride there.

    Desert Wells Area

    If you don't mind heading up North a bit you can hit up Boulders (aka Mile Marker 11.5) right off of the Carefree Highway (North Side). Lots of varied terrain and actually some small hill climbs and whatnot. I hate whoops so I don't ride here much -lol.

    Mile Marker 11.5 Area

    Also in the area is the back road to Crown King. This is a fun ride with some rocky stuff along the way.

    Take Carefree highway till it ends going West and head up to Wickenburg to check out the Hassy from up there. We'll often stage across the street from the Rodeo grounds and head in. Staging here it would be a good idea to be street legal as you will be driving on some pavement. The wash is a blast and usually has water in some places. I've been up there when the wash was more like a river!

    That's the big places I hit unless I 'really' go out of town. then it's Cinders, Glamis, etc. I'd like to check out the Rim country some time. Supposed to be tons of trails up there.

    Don't know about the west side

    Also on the east side Sycamore Creek has a huge wash area (lower sycamore) on the other side of 87 from Rolls / 4 Peaks (Bush Hwy and 87)

    If you head to Florence there's Box Canyon from which you can access a the Coke ovens and Martinez mine, there's also a big sand pit near the Gila south of Price Rd.

    If you head a little further towards Superior there's Queen Valley and the Ajax mine area which is the north portion of Box Canyon/ Mineral Mountain Rd.

    But if playing in a big wash area is what you like I would go to lower sycamore.

    I think the other entrance is closed but I'm not sure. You might have ot ride in till you get to the wash and work your way South.

    Last time I was there we headed North West until it pretty much ended and followed the wash back. Nothing exciting.

    I rode Rolls afterwards just to get some fast riding in.

    My favorite ride is still the back road to Crown King.

    The entrance across North from 4 peaks NF-143 is upper sycamore NF-402

    The old entrance to lower sycamore is @ NF-403 you get there by going north on 87 and making a U-turn @ the 4 peaks entrance, go south about 3.5 miles and it will be on your right or
    they have completed the entrance off of Bush highway to lower sycamore, so north of 87 on Bush hwy about .1 mile it will turn into a gravel road that will lead you to a stop sign at the bottom of a hill which is NF-403. The big wash area is about 2 miles to the left of that stop sign on NF-403, if you want to ride in the wash. There are trails between Upper and Lower sycamore that connect into a large loop.

    The rolls is fun too, start at the pobrecito staging area off of Bush hwy about 3 miles south of 87, or the corral off of 87 @ NF-143.

    All the entrances were open as of Nov 1, 2009.
