Stunning views, challenging yet doable trail, and enough traffic to help if something really goes wrong! All around enjoyable.

Extremely wet today with lots of mud and ice

Don't go on this trail first because you might get disappointed. Save it for last so the other trails you take are cool too!

Loved this trail! Well worth the drive up from PHX! Definitely will be doing it again! I did it with a Jeep Wrangler Sport without lockers with a 2 inch leveling kit and 33's.

Great scenic views by traversing a pleasantly short trail. Only light suspension articulation required, but does require above average ground clearance.

At one point I heard a pink jeep guide radio to others on his mic, describing my truck as traveling the wrong way. I stopped to ask if I was in fact going the wrong way. The man politely informed me of my error and was helpful. Something to look into before diving into narrow 1 VIC wide trails like Broken Arrow.

My 16' f150 single cab 6'6" bed with 6" lift and 35" general grabbers did pretty well. Reading after the fact I noticed I had a longer wheel base than recommended, and did cause some temporary slowing for the atv's, jeeps, etc. My retracting running boards paid for themselves by not taking away ground clearance like static ones would have. Tire pressure is important for safety, traction and ride comfort. For myself, 30 psi was the sweet spot.

Took my 3 year old on this trail and was easy enough she could walk it. The views of course are awesome! Great little hike!

This trail will get your adrenaline pumping! I took it 6 or 7 times a day as it was 10 minutes from my hotel. Sharing the trail with tour Jeeps. I made it no problem with 31's and lockers.

If you can find a spot on the street, then you can make your way down the side of the hill and hike and swim the creek. Once you start to get close to Slide Rock it smells like urine, but if you hike further down the creek a lot less people and although the water is freezing (even in summer) it's refreshing once you lay out on the rock. Pack your stuff in zip log baggies in your pack.

This is about the most fun you can have without lockers. Some fairly technical stuff surrounded by gorgeous scenery. There are great places to stop and have a picnic with the family or just take in the beauty of the region. There are also a few spots where you can either test your metal as a driver and the limits of your rig or you can bypass them. You can't get past Staircase, though, so be ready for it.

Great Moab type wheeling. Nothing there that can't be done with a stock Sahara/rubicon type vehicle. Best time to go is during the week. Weekends are fairly busy with jeep operators, although even then most of the time it's not too bad.

One of mine and my friends' favorite hikes. We frequent the slide rock area right underneath the bridge. Currently looking forward to exploring more of the trails in this system. The water is generally a little bit cold, but after the hike it feels fantastic.
