"Crapshoot Trail" in the Southern Half of Table Mesa

Limited to 20 4x4s. No street tires. CB useful.

Pack a lunch and the typical items for the run. We will leave the Circle K at 9 AM sharp and drive south on Hwy. 17 to Table Mesa Road exit 236 and head west.

Click here for details in the Second Edition of the Guide to Arizona Backroads & 4-Wheel Drive Trails by Charles A. Wells.

Very little pin stripping if any.

Rated as Difficult by the guide, but this is based on two hills that are very steep and loose. Be careful not to slide sideways. Most of the trail is Moderate. Stock 4x4 SUVs can do it, but will be challenged.

Click here for a look at a short video showing the two "hairy spots" on the other wise moderate trail.

Return by mid to late afternoon.

If you are coming up from the Phoenix area we can meet you west of Hwy. 17 on Table Mesa Road. There is a staging area approx. 1/2 to 1 mile off of Hwy. 17 on Table Mesa Road on the left, We will be there by 9:45 AM and the CB channel will be 12.

    For those that wondered about that trail marked TV1, it is called Die Hard. TV2 is called Lower Terminator, TV3 is called Upper Terminator, TV4 is called Anaconda, TV5 is an option trail off of Upper Terminator and TV6 is called Collateral Damage.

    Had a great time on the trail. Thing about trails here is that you will see things one week and not the next. Thanks to Lou and Gary for leading this one.

    I won't be able to do some of the runs due to the current tires on my jeep. They are 255 R18's coopers but probably not for some of the difficult runs. I need to get a little bigger tire but not sure what would be best. I still would love to go on the rides if anyone wants a passenger. I would help with gas, ect.

    I have to beg off this time. My 44 year old CJ has been acting up. Don't trust it to get down the freeway. Runs ok but kinda noisy and won't go over 60.
