A BIT OF EVERYTHING
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.
ENJOY THE VIEWS
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.
very cool and fun trails for all levels of expertise. I completed this trail on a polaris rzr non turbo.
