Vehicle Types


Well-known Arizona hard-core trail follows rocky creek bed.

A popular hard-core trail mixed with a little scenery. Locals know this trail as Upper Woodpecker, but since Lower Woodpecker is now closed, we see no need to differentiate the two. Always drive this trail with at least one or two other vehicles. Take plenty of water. We rode this trail on our ATVs several years ago for our ATV Phoenix book and brought our ATV again this time. (See page 16 and map on page 149 if red flag is flying at entrance to Cottonwood Canyon Road or Mineral Mountain Road.)


Trail Ratings Defined

Trail follows rocky creek bed with large boulders and narrow passages. Most difficult obstacles have bypasses. Lockers, skid plates and over sized tires a must. It’s a good idea to carry extra parts.
