In march, 2016, we showed some good friends a nice round trip from House Rock Valley Road to Big Sink and from Big Sink to an area called Mini White Pocket (we called it earlier “Scrambled Rocks”). From Mini White Pocket, we went to Hole In The Rock Arch and had lunch there. From Hole In The Rock Arch, we drove towards White Pocket. Along this connecting road is also a knoll, called Pottery Knoll. We had a short stop there and hiked around a little bit, but did not see a lot of pottery. Further along that road, we tried to spot the “Tall Man” petroglyph. But for some reason, we did not find it. After a short distance, we arrived at White Pocket. After having an extensive photo session at White Pocket, we went back to House Rock Valley Road via Poverty Flat.

Hi, my name is Christian. Since years, my wife and me are spending our vacation in the southwest of the USA. At the beginning, we had been visiting a lot of national parks, but after some time, we started to explore also areas off pavement. We started with the Coyote Buttes South region and White Pocket in the Vermilion Cliffs NM. Over years, we explored almost the complete Vermilion Cliffs NM and visited also a lot of other areas in Arizona, California, Nevada and Utah. Especially the Moab area and the San Rafael Swell are our favorites. But also the Rubicon trail in the High Sierras was very impressing. In 2015, we had been the first time in the Kingman, AZ area. There are a lot of outstanding 4WD trails, like Sleeping Princess or Moss Wash. This type of trails has a high difficulty rating and one should have the right vehicle and good driving skills to tackle this type of trails. As I did not find any good source of information about the trails, we planned to drive at the beginning of our ‘offroad adventures’, I started to create this website. I hope, that it has some use for visitors and gives some kind of information and also inspiration.
