    Question Arizona Trail Book/Guide

    Quick question for anyone that can help. I'm looking for an Arizona Trail guide book or map book for day trip weekend Adventures. I've seen a couple that I kind of like up at Crown King General Store, but was curious if there was a master Trail guide and where I can pick one up?

    The charles wells book is good. That was probably the one you were looking at.

    All the local 4x4 shops probably have them.

    Get the spiral bound version, not the regular binding. It will last much longer. Also, the waypoints are available for download to your GPS for free!

    Also, they (FunTreks aka the Wells Book) sell a data chip with the same trails that plugs in to some Garmin nav systems - just follow the yellow brick road, literally. Offroad turn by turn.

    This is the one

    Guide to Arizona Backroads & 4-Wheel-Drive Trails 2nd Edition https://www.amazon.com/dp/1934838195..._ZYg6Ab8068BZN

    There’s also an app for your smartphone to go along with it. It’s a little spendy but worth it IMO. You can follow the trail whether you have signal or not, as long as you download the map ahead of time.

    Re: Arizona Trail Book/Guide

    You can now download the coordinates free of charge. I got the URL from the Colorado version of the book and the coordinates for all of the books are there.

    Works great and the locations are dead on.

    Notation for the coordinate is trail # and waypoint #. U2303 is trail 23 in the book, waypoint 03. Don't count on the GPS to necessarily route you between those waypoints in the most direct manner though.

    Great book.

    I was able to just download the gps points from the funtreks website and add them to my garmin. Just seems that i would have to click on each point and hit go.

    Most apps allow importing of gps tracks and waypoints There are a couple of different common file formats.

    I use backcountry navigator. It works pretty good.

    Some of the free maps are no longer free.

    The Wells book is not at all all inclusive. Just take a drive through eastern AZ. The amount of dirt roads off the highways in the middle of nowhere ALL beckon one. There's so much more to see than the same old Wells' book 'trails'.

    I agree. But the book is a great way to start.

    I also have this book. It has a lot more backcountry roads in it.
