Camp Creek Wash

 

Back

The Trail:

Camp Creek Wash is, a wash. It's really popular with quads, is flat, sandy, has many crisscrossed trails, and has no obstacles (at least in the part we have run so far). It runs from Bartlett Dam Road south to the Verde River and Needle Rock. There is also a stretch that runs North of Bartlett Dam Road, which we have not tried yet. It gets more scenic as you approach the river.

Rating:

3.0 - the wash is really a 1.0, but you have a good chance of getting stuck in the sand without four wheel drive, plus there are some optional hills to climb

A little more scenic as we approach the river. You can see the dust from passing quads:
