Most popular for its diverse driving terrain and endless trails.

Sycamore Creek OHV Loop is a 52 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Fort McDowell, Arizona that offers the chance to see wildlife and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a fun combination of driving speed dirt roads, wide-open valleys and challenging climbs. This trailhead is easily our most popular option!

Great place to do plenty of outdoor activities. A lot of staging and shooting going on the first half mile. Once you get passed that it opens up to whatever you want. If it’s your first time it’s easy to miss your trail since their are soo many off shoots and turn outs. Ended up all the way to the end of the creek where it dead ends. Had some small water crossings (end of May). If you’re sticking to this root, it is rated easy with minimal obstacles until you get to FR1851 and it turns moderate with a small climb.

We had a great time and it is a really good trail to learn on if new at off-roading.

Super fun! This was my first time off-roading out on a trail. Drove a wide dirt road for a bit and then it opens up to a fun open area that allowed me to get to know my vehicle. Had a blast and not very crowded on a Friday.

About 4 miles in it gets very narrow with lots of tree branches to scrape your vehicle; AZ pin stripes time. I turned around as I did not have magnetic armor on the Jeep and didn’t want to get scratched up. Saw several cow and steer with can opening antler, incentive to turn around, especially when his highness and a few of his bro’s staring down my vehicle in the middle of the path. Lol

Trail 1851 has some hill climbing that is fairly technical. I saw a few people turn back. It isn’t easy. I did it with a quad. Next time I will try a UTV

The trail a good mix of everything. Took about 2.5 hours with a 2020 RZR with 32 inch rims and tires.

Most popular for its scenic stop at Saguaro Lake.

Butcher Jones OHV Trail is a 16.2 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Fort McDowell, Arizona that features Saguaro Lake and is great for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for ohv/off road driving and is accessible year-round with gorgeous views.

Took Pobrocito to the Rolls and headed down to the coves it made for a great day. Hung out in the lake for a couple hours then headed out the four peaks entrance. High clearance and 4wheel drive highly recommend.

From Pobrecito you pretty much have to choose one of the myriad trails that snake through desert until you hit the wash and follow it down. You will have to climb a gnarly hill to get to the trail that I assume goes to the lake. I didn't finish the trail because we had a late start but it was a good mix of rock crawling, sandy washes, and hard packed dirt.

I’ve done this trail multiple times and it is a hands down favorite for my group. Highly reccomend renting a UTV and not a quad.

This is one of my favorite trails in Arizona! I love taking the family there that way we can enjoy some time splashing in saguaro lake. Trail gets more difficult based on which cove you end up at. Cove 3 and 4 are our favorites! This trail is filled with all off-road vehicles, sxs, dirt bikes, 4wheelers. Drive safely and take the corners slow.

Lots of steep hills to navigate. Beautiful area next to Saguaro Lake. A razor would navigate this easily.

Are the trails difficult?

For both Sycamore Creek and Butcher Jones, clients can choose which paths to take during their journey. Some paths are more challenging up-hill climbs while others are casual cruises. A thorough vehicle and trial demo will be provided at the time of rental.

Are there any bathrooms on the trail?

No, there are no bathrooms along or at the beginning of this trailhead. The closest bathroom is a nearby Chevron gas station located along Forth McDowell Rd and the N Beeline Hwy.  

We highly recommend stopping at this gas station on the way to stock up on drinks and snacks.

Could we get lost?

No, Sycamore Creek is well-marked and well-maintained. At the beginning of your trip, we will provide a QR code that gives you the most updated and complete map of your trail right on your phone.

How long can we ride for?

Unlike our competitors, we do not limit how long you can ride in hopes of renting the same vehicle to multiple clients on the same day. We give you the entire day from 7 AM to 5 PM.

You can choose to start your trip as late or end it as early as you'd like between 7 AM to 5 PM.

The cutoff time is 5 PM to ensure we have everyone accounted for before the sun begins to set.

Do we have any limitations on the trail?

We do not place any speed traps (limit your vehicle's speed) or force you to follow anyone on the trail. You are 100% free to explore the entire trail and go at your own pace!

Our only limitation is that you follow certain precautions to ensure your safety during your trip.

What is the process of renting?

This is our Show Up & Ride option. Once you make your reservation online or over the phone, all you have to do is show up at the trailhead on the scheduled date and time of your trip. Once you arrive, we will take care of everything else.

When you arrive, there will be a safe place to park your vehicle without off-roading or worrying about damaging your paint. 

We will provide all the required safety gear and a thorough vehicle and trail demo before you take off.
