We took the Arizona Trail from American flag Ranch to Rice Peak. Great views and solitude until the last 2 miles when we hit the road. Didn't enjoy waking up the steep 4x4 road, but the view from Rice Peak was great and we had it to ourselves.

Took RZR out all the way to the peak. Views were fantastic. A couple challenging areas but overall a great ride. Weather was good. Saw 10 deer and lots of wild turkeys. On the way out went up the control road to pepper sauce cave. Sweet cave

Always a great 3-4hr trip. Depends on the route taken.

This trail is a moderate trail that requires high clearance 4x4. Steep and rocky with only one technical climb over a 2.5 foot ledge. The trail has very tight off camber switchbacks that require multi point turns even in a short wheelbased Jeep. Shelf road along Oracle ridge will get your heart pumping in a few spots.The views are awesome. Bring a camera
