Monument, CO – FunTreks Guidebooks, Inc. has just published a new edition of its Guide to Arizona Backroads & 4-Wheel-Drive Trails. The first edition, published in 2001, was “long overdue for an update,” says author and company founder, Charles Wells.
“Everything about this second edition is new,” says Wells, a 20-year four-wheeling veteran and author of eleven 4-wheel-drive guidebooks. “I took a team of three drivers to Arizona last fall and, in 48 days, we drove 109 trails. We needed to replace some trails that have closed, like Martinez Canyon, Reno Pass, Lockett Meadow, Butterfield Stage Route and the recently burned Sunflower Mine. We also wanted to add some new trails we missed in the first edition.”
The new book has been expanded from 75 to 100 trails, with 43 new routes. Trails were added all across Arizona including many in stunningly beautiful Sedona. Local expert, Nena Barlow, of Barlow Jeep Rentals, was our personal guide.
