Bring your normal recovery gear and tire plugs to fix flats.

The trail is scenic, the difficulty is moderate. Telegraph Canyon is a favorite. This trail begins at Superior, winds up through Telegraph Canyon, Upper Box Canyon, a lunch stop at the abandoned Ajax Mine, and a wild completion over the 'dragonback' ridges. This trail is perfect for the stock Land Rover (or should that be the other way around!), and any difficult spot has an option.
