Re: Vids off road at Butcher Jones trails in AZ

Be careful out there. There are a lot of idiots that drive way too fast. I had a kid in a Titan that came flying around a blind corner and crashed into my YJ.

Check out Sycamore Creek or Bulldog Canyon. Both are easy trails.. So you won't get as big of hill climbs Butcher Jones but they are nice drives.

I bought a 2015 JGC Overland last month and I still haven't driven it off the pavement. How is Sycamore Creek and Bulldog Canyon? Are the trails wide? Don't really want Arizona pin striping on my $48k Jeep.

I think youd enjoy running it up to 4 peaks, or at Saguaro Lake. No where to really get pinstriped unless you look for it. Also box canyon in Wickenburg was a lot of fun. Check out the Arizona Virtual Jeep club forum and look under the general section for "street runs" . The trails they go to, youll be more than capable of. Moderate runs in most cases have bypasses to go around the tough stuff but vehicle damage is possible on those runs.

I havent been to the two spots you mentioned (yet) but plan to soon.

Thanks for the reply and sorry it took so long to respond back. I still haven't taken my Jeep to any of these trails, but I do plan on it soon.
