Arizona is full of unpaved roads just waiting to be explored in a capable, off-road vehicle. And what vehicle is better equipped than the new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor? This beast of a truck is built specifically to handle any terrain that comes its way. Give your F-150 Raptor a true performance test by visiting one of these off-road sites.
Why not start with a difficult trail? The 2017 F-150 Raptor can handle it. At Desoto Mine, you’ll traverse some of the most remote backcountry in Arizona, with plenty of steep grades, twisting paths, and creek beds to challenge you. You’ll find this 12-mile trail about two hours north of Sanderson Ford, near Prescott National Forest.
New River Canyon
You will love taking on this moderate, rocky, washed-out terrain in your 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor. The New River Canyon trail passes through parts of Sonoran Desert and Tonto National Forest, and is located just 45 minutes north of Glendale.
If you’re planning to off-road near Glendale for the first time, this easy trail is perfect for you. The setting isn’t too remote, so help is nearby if needed, but you’ll still get to experience some steep, sandy, and rocky terrains at Belmont Mountain. While you’re there, you can even take a break at Vulture Mine, a ghost town with a preserved gold mine for a glimpse into the Arizona days that existed long before off-roading.
