TRAIL RATINGS (1 - 10)
Recognizing that trails are not constant in their degree of difficulty, the index requires that each trial be rated by the most difficult situation encountered that cannot be bypassed.
1 ~ County dirt road maintained for high clearance 2WD and 4WD use in adverse conditions.
2 ~ County dirt road with infrequent or light maintenance after rain or snow, 2WD high clearance with low gears, otherwise light duty 4WD.
3 ~ Road with frequent use, but seldom maintained. Dirt, sand and slick rock surfaces, with mud holes possible (note: maybe impassable when wet due to soil composition). 4WD recommended under most circumstances due to ruts or wash erosion.
4 ~ Road surface consisting of loose rock, dirt, and sand with some slickrock surfaces. Erosion, washes, gulches and rock steps no higher than 12”. 4WD is recommended with good ground clearance and driving skills. Aggressive tires and limited slip would be a plus. Water and mud is possible.
5 ~ Road surfaces are rutted, rocky and sandy with steps not exceeding 14”, with considerable slickrock surfaces. Water not exceeding 12” with some mud possible. Good vehicle approach and departure angles are helpful. Tall tires (33” minimum) and traction added device (lockers, limited slips) is recommended. Above average driving skills are desirable.
6 ~ Roads are difficult with considerable erosion damage repaired just enough to be passable. Water in excess of 12” is possible with mud conditions. Steps not exceeding 24”. Tall tires (33” plus) with traction added devices (lockers, limited slips) are recommended. A winch would be a plus. Enhanced suspension travel and ground clearance are helpful. Excellent driving skills are recommended.
7 ~ Trail consists of rock; sand and considerable slickrock with many steps exceeding 24”. Steep inclines and declines are prevalent. Enhanced off road equipment is required including locking devices (front & rear), tall tires, maximum vehicle ground clearance, and tow hooks. A winch is desirable. Excellent driving skills are required. Vehicle mechanical or body damage is likely. Roll over possibilities exist.
8 ~ Extreme trail similar to #7 except a bit more extreme. Excellent driving skills are required. Vehicle damage is likely. Equipment or mechanical damage is probable. Frequent use of your winch may be required.
9 ~ Extreme and beyond, similar to #8. Vehicle damage is likely. Excellent driving skills are required. Roll over is very common. Winches, spare parts and tools are recommended. Be prepared to spend the night on the trail. Beyond the capability of most modified stock vehicles.

NCC Legal Information:
Rules/Guideline*: The No Club Club is just that: a "Virtual" club. We have no president, no treasurer or treasury; members are not "voted in," they simply join. The NCC is and most likely always will be an unorganized club. Our website provide as much organization as most members desire. Many members are already members of various "real" clubs. If organization (president, treasurer, etc.) is what you desire, we suggest you look at the Arizona State Association of 4 Wheel Drive Clubs web site http://asa4wdc.org/... and find an organized club that suits you. This does not mean that you cannot be a part of the NCC; anyone and everyone can belong to the NCC and whatever other 4wd clubs they desire.*
Since this is a Virtual club, there are no real rules, however there are certain guidelines:
1. When on the trail always remember to T.R.E.A.D. Lightly!
Travel and recreate with minimal impact.
Respect the environment and the rights of others.
Educate yourself, plan and prepare before you go.
Allow for future use of the outdoors, leave it better than youfound it.
Discover the rewards of responsible recreation.
2. Don't drink and drive. A cold one at the end of the trail is perfectly acceptable. Getting smashed while driving down the trail only gives 4 wheelers a bad reputation and we'd rather not wheel with someone who would jeopardize our sport by giving the eco-terrorist more ammunition.
3. First name and last name are required for approval as a member. You may use both partners first names and a last name as well. Single names or nick names will not be approved. Administratively we can not sort communications or RSVP’s with single names or nick names. The priority of who is first to sign up on events depends on this clarity.
4. If you want to promote your business or other organizations it must be approved .
