    What's up guys!
    heading to this part of the country next month.
    I'll be arriving to AZ on 9/2-9/3 Planning on driving broken arrow on 9/3 if anyone from the area would like to join me. (early morning)
    Arriving to UT late night 9/4 after stopping by the 4 corners monument.. 9/5 run Gemini bridges and stop by arches.
    and 9/6-9/8 I'll be in Vegas if anyone wants to play in the desert!

    If you guys have any recommendations let me know as well!

    Let me know if any of you would like to meet up, I'll be with my wife and a buddy and his wife.

    Sedona is great however I really like the road between Prescott and Sedona . Make sure to stop by the little town of Jerome.
    The area around Flagstaff/Williams is really nice too.

    Personal opinion, 4 corners sucks and is a waste of time.
    Other spots to consider are Zion, Valley of Fire, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, and Canyonlands.

    Cool definitely heard Zion from a lot of ther folks!
    Before we head out of Sedona we are gonna stop by the north rim and horse shoe bend. And 4 corners was the option. Probably reconsider that is Zion or any of the other suggestions are otw to Moab.
    As much as possible we are trying not to back track.
    But definitely looking into these.
    Thanks guys!

    Zion for sure. Moab is great. Problem is everybody else knows that too. Especially this time of year. Head over to Grand Junction, Co if you have some time. Some great 4 wheeling can be had in that area. No tourists. Stick with your plan. Should be a great trip. Post pics.

    So the ladies still want to go four corners.
    But looking into Canyonlands as we enter getting into Moab. Or when before we setup camp at dead horse

    It's cool to stand on four corners at least once, or jump and down a few times.......

    We'll be camping up in schnelby for a night.

    I was a little worried about broken arrow but a few tundra folks made it out there and recomended that I just remove my tube steps to clear the hard stuff

    Yes, the Sedona airport is awesome! When my parents still lived out there we went to visit for Christmas one year and they got me a 1 hour flying lesson. Amazing scenery! Love how it sits up on a plateau.

    Schnebly road is crap. The views at the top are ok but the road is utter crap. Not worth it in my opinion. I every time I run it I think I remember it as worse then it is then once on it I curse myself over and over for not trusting my self.

    Find any other trail to check out. Sedona has tons of places that are amazing.

    @GTABurnout
    Any thing you recommend? I was planning on airing down for Schnebly, but if you say it is that bad then I'll opt to do something else.
    I am staying off the 89 once I touchdown in Sedona, and schnebly was my way to get to the 17 to work my way up towards flagstaff, and I will be camping up in Schultz pass if there are no fire restrictions at the time.

    Sorry, I don't get here much.

    The road from Sedona to Flagstaff is worth the drive. If you decide to go up Schnebly just air down and be prepared for a rough ride and frustratingly rocky. Not sure what else to tell you I am not a real 4X4 guy I go to Sedona to Ride MTB.
