    Bagdad/Williams area

    I'm pretty new here, and fairly new to SxS, but like all my hobbies, I bite hard. We really enjoy multi day trips and did 8 days in Baja last month. Good times.

    May 1 we're going to leave Bagdad, head through Seligman then spend two days in Williams. A trip day trip from there to Tusayan, then south towards Jerome, Chino Valley for the last night then back to Bagdad. My question: does anyone know if we can head north from Bagdad on Sycamore Creek Road up to Trout Creek road, following it east and then north to Seligman. I can follow the roads on Google Earth (I lay a track then upload to Gaia), and it looks like it's doable. Just not sure if I've missed some fences, private property etc.
    Thanks for any assistance.

    It was a great trip. Four days, just shy of 900 miles. We'll do this again:

    Up past Six Mile Crossing


    Day one we herded a few cows. It was the only day we got turned away, added 80 miles to to the 130 I'd planned before lunch:

    Lunch, or early dinner in Seligman. Folks from around the world seem to gather in Seligman. Who knew:


    Day two from Williams to Tusayan, just south of the GC proper:


    Day 3 we hit the overlook into Oak Creek, then Sycamore point, Jerome for some BBQ and ended up in Chino Valley:






    Day four was a short one, Chino back to Bagdad, past maybe the prettiest ranch setting I have ever seen, Yolo Ranch.

    The photo doesn't come close to sharing how stunning this little valley/ranch really is

    great post and pics.

    do you have you rout loaded in a gps file or some other format and if so can you post it so others can put it in their files? what happened on the day you had to turn and add 80 miles.

    envious, I am wanting to do a multi day trip in the cars, let me know if you plan any other trips in the AZ area.

    This is a ride I'd love to do. Hoping you tracked your adventure and you can share with us. Or maybe spearhead a group ride in the future ?

    Great pictures, thanks for sharing.

    Big trips like that make me jealous. I'd sure like to see that GPS track also just to look at the route. I've also always been interested in the trails around Bagdad.

    I map everything out on Google Earth first, then download to Gaia, and of course then track it on Gaia as we run it. I'd be happy to share files.
    The only route I got shut out on was the road north out of Bagdad area, Sycamore Creek, Burro Creek and Bogles Ranch Rd. I knew there was a lot of grazing, fences and a few ranches up there but wanted to try as it's spectacular country and part of the the trip was the variety of landscape. I hope to go back before June for just a day and see if I can't find a decent route up those roads to somewhere south of the 40 then over to Seligman.
