Ever heard of the small town Crown King? There is a back way to get up there from the north end of Lake Pleasant. Take Castle Hot Springs north of Carefree highway and make a left at the end. It starts out calm but has some pretty hairy areas. I have yet to travel it in my Titan but did it once on my quad. Best part is the hamburger and beers in town when you get there. :cheers:
Rather than turning left to go to Table Mesa, Turn right. Back in there aways is a trail called lower terminator I believe. Make sure you take another truck or two though. :cheers: Skagneti is right on the money about Crown King though. Awesome day trip.
One of my favorite trips was over 4 peaks and down to Roosevelt Lake. Very cool at the top 4500' elevation I think. Road got nasty in areas so you will need the 4x4 and good clearance. Most of the road was just rocky and slow going. Fantastic pictures when you get to the top. East towards Roosevelt and west towards Scottsdale and Mesa. If you are really ambitious take the trail to the El Oso mine. Also recommend going with others into 4 wheeling. Safety in numbers. Got stuck over night once by myself. Not pleasant. Good luck, play safe.
