New River Canyon (1-25-14) Pics

I decided to take the Tacoma and the girlfriend out on an easy ride threw New River Canyon. The trail rating was supposedly a 2/5 but i would rate it about a 3.5 due to 4wd being mandatory for the steep hills and switchbacks. Also much of the trail is washed out. I was extremely lucky my girlfriend knew how to spot due some spots being rather tricky.

Enjoy the Pictures

Started out right of the I-17 on Table Mesa road

Pics don't really show how steep the climb was!

Lots of these cool rock formations out there




Had to do it just because!


When we made it to Seven Springs we finally saw WATER!!!

Looks like fun. Not to be too anal retentive about the trail rating but a AZ rating of a 3.5/5 trail is challenging 4x4 and would come with a recommendation of lift, lockers, and sliders... maybe Rug Road or a bad day on the Coke Ovens. It's hard to imagine New River being that difficult.

Did this trail last year with a prerunner. Needed the locker but 2wd got us through. I look at anything over a rating of 3 as possible body damage.
