    More adventures!


    Had the day off, so I grabbed a buddy and we drove down the 17 to the Lake Montezuma exit and headed south on NF-618. Took NF-215 out to West Clear Creek and explored the creek a bit.

    At the 618/215 intersection

    Found a rode to a hill top which eventually lead to the discovery of a giant metal water gathering platform that fed into a small drinking hole, which was monitored by US government wildlife cameras. I'm not sure if they saw any interesting animals, but they definitely caught two guys poking around.

    Picturesque road down into West Clear Creek. Had never been to this area of AZ before and was impressed at how much water and vegetation there was.

    [​IMG]11-16-18 Day Trip from I-17 to Happy Jack by Michael Rickerd, on Flickr

    After we left West Clear Creek we headed back to the 618 to take the NF-214 east over to Lake Mary Road.

    This is where the nail biting begins.

    Pictures don't quite do it justice, but it took us 3 hours to go 10 miles. Needed spotting for 2 of those hours. Got to test out 4Lo though! Thoroughly! Never had traction issues, even at 32 psi, but the abundance of sharp steep rocks was disconcerting without a spotter.

    Lots and lots of rocks, lots and lots of issues with stock mudflaps being bent and crushed. One front skid encounter, early on, as the spotter was learning the trucks ground clearance abilities. And several hits on the Predator Tube Step, front drivers side.

    This wouldn't have been nearly as bad if the truck wasn't bone stock, but it made it through!

    About 4 miles from the end of the dirt road we passed under some power wires

    Trail was quite a bit more difficult than a few years ago. High centered and nearly ripped off my muffler and exhaust near the cross member on a particularly difficult stretch of the trail. Had to stack a bunch of rocks a handful of times and needed some trusty spotters to clear a few obstacles.

    I checked out this trail on www.trailsoffroad.com and holy moly, the guy that made the video flies through that trail. I can't imagine how rough his ride must have been as his hood never stopped shaking and caused the video to be blurry. I doubt he aired down and obviously didn't really slow down... Nonetheless, if someone took their time, it looks like a nice, fun, and relaxing trail with some unobstructed views of the Sedona landscape.

    Just watched that video you were talking about. The trail isn’t nearly as smooth as it was in that video (2016). It has been washed out a ton. It’s very rocky now and was decently challenging at times in my stock truck (my mud flaps almost didn’t make it lol). There was almost no smooth parts like you frequently see in the video. Plus there’s Sedona Jeep tours that go up and down that trail all day. We saw about 10 of them. Based on their rating system, I would say it’s more like a 4-6 now easy-moderate. But you’re right, breathtaking views the whole way!

    You are talking about the back way right? Was this just the trail itself? Did you use all the bypass's?

    yes, the backway. The trail itself has been completely reshaped by the mining operation and recent rainstorms. I can't tell you how many people on UTVs that I passed asked me if I seriously did the trail in a stock Tacoma. They all thought I was nuts.

    The last time I did the trail, I did it in a stock Grand Cherokee and did not have to stack boulders or use a guide a single time. This time around, I had to stack boulders three times and needed a guide countless times. If this tells you anything, I started the trail around 10am and did not arrive in Crown King until nearly 3pm. And traffic was very light. All in all a great time, but I will definitely get my exhaust rerouted before I hit the trail again.
