BE WARNED: THIS DOES NOT DIRECT TO EASY ROAD. If you click 'directions' above, it will route you to the Dugas Road exit off of the I-17. This is the road that will take you to the ranch/hotel side of the Verde River. it is extremely rocky and not advised for anyone in a regular vehicle. if you are looking to rock crawl, this is the road for you. In my lifted Jeep it was awesome, but if not, take the route that leads you to Child Power Rd. it is way safer and the river crossing is easy most months of the year. I actually saw an old car crashed down the ravene that clearly should not have been on this road.
TLDR:
Looking for intense 4x4? Take Dugas Rd to 68G
Looking for friendly dirt road? Take FR260 to Child Power Rd.
