Broken Arrow Trail

By Jeep Experts

Broken Arrow is situated close to Sedona, AZ.  It provides a low issue degree path for lifted and geared up autos and a medium degree for inventory autos.  (It isn’t that onerous to barter because the notorious Pink Jeep Tours of Sedona run it dozens of instances a day.) 

There have been seven brief wheel primarily based Jeeps in our group on a Saturday morning.  The path itself takes about barely greater than 2 hours, assuming you cease and mess around on the rocks and do lunch close to the half approach level.  It sort of jogs my memory of a mini-Moab place.  There is a few slick rock to drive on, nevertheless, it’s not fairly the identical materials as that present in Moab.  I discovered that my locker was chirping the tires a bit extra right here than at Moab.  None the much less, it was a enjoyable day….in spite of everything, there have been 7 of us attempting to determine simply what to do to make it extra pleasurable for everybody!

Our first pleasure begin only a brief distance down the path.  We have been taking part in on some rock ledges when ppphhhhttttttttttt………………(that sound that Jeepers actually hate).

“Holing” your sidewall is at all times good for killing 15 or 20 minutes on a brief path.  Luckily, that was the one incident we had throughout the day.

We ate lunch at Chicken Point.  I’m not sure why it’s known as that as a result of nothing within the quick vacinity appears like a hen.  I assume it may very well be on account of the drop off that surrounds you, but it surely isn’t that steep.   Granted, you may’t drive the Jeep down it….nicely, possibly you possibly can….hmmmm!

Scott, my oldest son, got here with me on this journey.  Here we’re on the prime of the Devil’s Staircase, as it’s known as.  It is stretch of rock ledges, that begins on the prime of the hill, and also you sort of stroll your Jeep down them.  A few the blokes went again up after the final car cleared the impediment.  We posted a “guard” on the prime of the hill to forestall anybody else from beginning down whereas our guys have been going up.  (sort of like driving the unsuitable approach on a a technique avenue…oh nicely, we have been simply having a bit little bit of enjoyable)

Near the top of the path, there’s a little place to detour via so all of us took a flip placing our Jeeps via the alternate route.  It is my understanding that the Pink Jeeps come down this, as we witnessed one of many pink drivers do that.  The laughing and screaming vacationers have been apart from themselves.  Go determine…we’re all watching one another and commenting on traction, wheel articulation, and many others.  Yep….Jeepers to the bone, every considered one of us!  My son Scott is standing to the left of the Jeep taking a film (720 KB)of me climbing this little rock

OK…I guess you retain questioning in regards to the Pink Jeep Tour factor.  I believe there must be some sort of federal regulation that claims you may’t do that to a Jeep.   Imagine, being painted pink after which having your physique modified to haul round a bunch of screaming vacationers!  Most attention-grabbing was one of many pink girl drivers who began telling us what to do, and many others.  (sure, she had an perspective downside for certain).   We politely ignored her….I assume she forgot that we have been on forest land, as was she.  At least we weren’t promoting silly rides and carrying ruts within the street doing it!   (sure, you may see the ruts within the rocks from the Pink Jeeps sliding down the Devil’s Staircase!)

So…here’s a pink Jeep….this makes me sick!

Well, after that final picture….I believe we have to name this a wrap.   I’d push Lady off a cliff and whole her earlier than I’d ever let her get painted pink and be topic to a lifetime of vacationer shuffling.  But, on the brighter facet, no less than they picked essentially the most succesful off-road car ever made to carry out such a job!
