    There are a lot of areas around the Phoenix area that would be awesome for a group. Table Mesa has a decent sized system of trails, just outside of Table Mesa there is the backroad to Crown King which can be as hard, or as easy as you want, meaning every major obstacle has a bypass and there are stellar views on the trail. There is Box Canyon outside of Wickenburg that is less than an hour away, and Box Canyon in Florence that is just beautiful, with lots of associated or nearby trails like Elvis, Jackhandle, Reymert mine, Montana mountain, hackberry Creek, etc. tons of stuff to do around Phoenix. I could easily wheel every day for at least a month and not do the same trail twice or travel more than 50miles.

    Hot Springs Off Road Park. Formally superlift ORP. Until recently it was considered an east coast Mecca of sorts due to it ammentities and various trails for all levels. Itís almost impossible to get lost in the park because it is so well labeled. Several local clubs can help (including myself) in guiding any skill level for an event such as a (long) weekend event with dinner.

    I must also not that there are rumors the park is up for sale and someone such as yourself, Mr Del, may be able to shed some light on the struggles even the private parks face.

    Windrock! 70k+ acres of land. You could literally drive for weeks and never see it all. It has all skill levels. Including ones that even buggies have issues with. Plenty of deer, hogs, elk, bass, caves, mud, sand and other things to see and play in. Best of all there is lodging and campsites on Windrock property.


    Plus itís like 5 mins from the house!

    I have helped several private parks over the years. It's a tough one; but not impossible. Community support is the biggie. Getting our folks behind a park in order to save it. That is the first step. What is around there for lodging and camping?

    How much are the fees if you have like a big group? What would be the attraction for a group to "buy into" a MJ Adventure at a nice facility like Windrock? I guess I am asking how it would be marketed?

    Honestly anytime. The climate is pretty mild year round. Never super cold or extremely hot except for a few select days. I honestly think fall is the most beautiful time of the year up there.

    I would have to visit with management if this is something we want to pursue. Day passí are around $20 per person per day. Maybe something we discuss further over the phone or email.

    Wish we had something here in Texas that we could organize.

    There are plenty of private parks with lodging close by.
    And maybe some wine tasting thrown in for good measure or a bar or two to wash down the Texas dust!
