    If anyone can possibly make this trip, DO IT. Rug Road is great! Neat mines, cabins, and don't forget Turkey Creek Indian Ruins. Not many stretches of road will have this much variety either, starting with classic sonoran, getting some higher elevation with trees, a rocky/Moab section, then awesome green and wet Turkey Creek. At least I hope the green has started there, kinda early. Plenty of amazing camping sites at the end of Turkey/Aravaipa Creeks:

    If you don't have 4x4 at least have a locker. There are some steep sections where traction will keep you safe. Have fun, Tread Lightly!!
