Thank goodness for public lands

Imagine what it's like living in a state that has no public lands.


It's hard for many locals to comprehend this scenario. The camping, offroad, adventure life we love so much, wouldn't exist. No trespassing signs would litter the backcountry narrowing your choices to a few select campgrounds and privately owned offroad parks. Hunting would only be allowed under the supervision of outfitters and guides or permission from landowners. Nearly every acre of land and historical place would be owned by someone.

Memorial Day Trexpedition | The trio united

Memorial Day Trexpedition through the Sierra Ancha Mountains in Arizona.


Dusk was approaching as we gathered at the gas station off Highway 87 just outside of town. After a long introduction and a short chit-chat, we tuned our radios to the frequency with desired. As we hit the highway towards Punkin Patch, the sun was quickly setting.

The plan for the night was to travel a short distance to the DuPont cabin just east of Punkin Patch. The trail was easy going and fast-paced at first. After veering off to a side Trail it got a little more interesting. Loose baseball-sized rocks made traction nearly impossible as we ascend a long steep shelf road towards Dupont cabin. One rock shelf and two switchbacks required careful navigation with limited room and no visibility.

Day Five | Broken Arrow trail and a blizzard

Playing catch-up and stopped by a blizzard


We are finally on day five and the crew was running low on supplies. Many in the group stressed that we stop at a grocery store. I was well stocked and wasn't in need of anything but ice. I had plenty of meat and various fruits, vegetables, instant foods, and freeze-dried foods. Our plan was to shop in Sedona prior to making our way down Broken Arrow Trail.

Day four | Crown King and the Swastika Mine

A mildly challenging trail and an awesome mine


After a good night's sleep, we woke to prepare some breakfast and pack up camp. Our camp was located near China Dam just north of Lake Pleasant along the Humbug Creek. There was a good amount of water flowing in the creek. Little did we know, 15 miles upstream Humbug Creek would cause us to pull a winch line. Many in the group were excited to experience the back road to Crown King. With huge anticipation, we made our way down Cow Creek Rd. towards the trailhead. The first stop was the Crown King rock for the iconic flexy photo.

Private property | Respected access is granted access

Landowners play an important role in keeping trails open

Lately, we've been hearing stories about private property owners and troubles with trespassers. Unfortunately, no trespassing signs only funnel visitors to less desirable individuals. We ought to be proud we such open access to public lands. Because we love to visit historical places. Its important to know some are on private property and visitors are not invited.

Day two and three | A Cross Road and 4 Peaks trail

Beautiful snow capped mountains, a treacherous river, and a flourishing desert.


Day 2 started with a quick breakfast and some pavement. We originally planned on traveling threw Pioneer Pass in the Pinal Mountains. Three feet of ice forced a detour down highway 77 towards Globe. There we connected with highway 288. After rounding Roosevelt lake, the dirt was within view.
