Reviews - What do customers think about Backcountry Adventures Arizona: The Ultimate Guide to the Arizona Backcountry for Anyone With a Sport Utility Vehicle (Backcountry Adventures) (Backcountry Adventures) (Backcountry Adventures)?

A little cumbersome and the maps are weak  Mar 20, 2008
This is a solid reference for discovering AZ backcountry roads & trails for exploring but it has some problems. It has a very good reading section on local and AZ history and historic figures to provide context. Its descriptive of trails and roads and a good planning tool, but not very useful in the field unless you're a geocacher used to relying on latitude/longitude references:
1. The maps are not uniformly oriented to North, so they're confusing when you try to use them in conjunction with a road map or a GPS map screen. Trying to use these maps while actually on the trail drove me nuts.
2. Maps are too sketchy; often omitting your access from main roads, and major landmarks. Things like stream fords, problem spots, bridges,etc should be indicated. For example, it would be nice to note that a trail you're interested in exploring is right next to a major resort, as would having a simple notation like "...10 mi. to I-17" on the access point.
3. There should be a simple thumbnail keymap shown with each individual trail map to provide a regional location. If planning a trip and chosing trails, you have to constantly refer back the beginning of the section to locate the trail on the regional map.
4. Long/lat waypoint listings are overemphasized and the space would be better used for decriptive text. Waypoint data could be shown on the map.
5. The book is printed very high quality, but it does weigh a TON!
 
My thoughts on Backcountry Adventures  Oct 30, 2007
The trails in the book are not hardcore 4-wheeling but do take you to a lot of fun places in arizona. Most stock SUVs can take these trails. There are a lot of good camping spots throughout the book. the trail descriptions and GPS coordinates are more than adequate to get you there. The only thing I didn't like is The trail maps are all rotated and so North is not always up which makes it a little harder to orient oneself.
 
Arizona Backcountry adventures  Mar 30, 2007
Great book but not entirely up-to-date. The author needs to run each of these routes at least once a year to keep it up to date.
 
Great!!!!!  Jan 9, 2007
I found that this book was great for our off road adventures in our new Jeep. The area we visited was Sedona and Jerome, AZ, area. What we liked about this book is the odometer readings were very exact, that the book had you zero out your odometer frequently and reset the odometer. The descriptions of the off road trails were very accurate. The rating systems for difficulty factor and scenic factor are very realistic. Also the milege of the trip and the time it takes to finish the route are included in each trip. You can also use GPS coordinates.
 
Great Trail Guide  Jan 9, 2007
Many of the best trails in AZ are listed in this book. The GPS and Map references help get to the trails and out the other end. The history of the trails and info on the animals, mines and formations make driving these trails even more fun to ride.
