Description:

The Town of Breckenridge is located 9,603 feet above sea level in a U-shaped valley on the western slope of the Continental Divide. In 2009, the Town celebrated its 150th anniversary. The Town boasts world-class amenities for residents and visitors alike. Your day can be filled with everything from a class in the Arts District, to a yoga class at our Recreation Center, to a ski at the Gold Run Nordic Center, to a concert at the Riverwalk Center, to a game of hockey at the Stephen C. West Ice Arena, to a play performed by the Backstage Theatre- the possibilities are endless. Of course, the Breckenridge Ski Resort continues to be one of the most visited amenities in Breckenridge. But summer is not to be forgotten. Locals always say, "I came for the winters and stayed for the summers."

The Town also proactively supports the needs of residents through an affordable housing program and support of childcare facilities. And the Open Space and Trails programs in Breckenridge provide unparalleled access to the natural beauty of Breckenridge year-round. Breckenridge has two elementary schools and three childcare facilities. It is still a small Town, but with big town amenities!

Description:

This trail combines the astounding Sedona beauty with moderate to challenging difficulty. The Red Rock country is the backdrop for this expedition that includes sights named Submarine Rock, Chicken Point, the Roundabout, and Devils Kitchen, with the challenge of slick-rock obstacles.

While relatively short in terms of distance, this trail calls for slow driving due to its tightness and rocky terrain. Many places are challenging because the driver needs to be well aware of their vehicle spatially and how to manage it over slick-rock, so drivers should have some experience.

The stock Range Rover, Discovery (including LR3), and Defender are well equipped to deliver a fantastic day.

Description:

This is such a popular area for four-wheeling that the Tonto National Forest instituted a permit system several years ago. Locked gates bar entry, and the combination you receive with your permit works for six months before the lock is changed.

This is hilly area with enormous boulders that tower as high as the buildings downtown. With the yellow-green lichen growing on them, they look like something from another world. Every time you crest a ridge you're treated to a new vista, and you get some of the best views of the Superstitions, Weaver's Needle and Four Peaks that you've ever seen.

Enormous coveys of quail make their homes here, as do javelina, deer, and hundreds of birds and smaller mammals. In spite of the lengthy drought, springs continue to provide water year-round. Ruins of old mining shacks dot the landscape here, and scattered along the hillsides are piles of stones put there by Spaniards to mark their mining claims.

A permit is required for this trail. It’s easy to obtain and free. Carry it with you at all times. This is a highly sensitive area and subject to closure. The trail passes through scenic Sonoran Desert with views of Goldfield and Superstition Mountains. Several short, steep rocky climbs that require careful tire placement and some driving skill. Suitable for aggressive stock SUVs with high ground clearance. Go with a friend and carry a tow strap.
