“Route on 4x4 roads in the Bartlett Wash and Tusher Canyon Area”
— Leslie Kehmeier
Starting at the Tusher Canyon parking area, this route primarily follows the 3D Jeep Route. Look for the 3D stickers on signs and brown carsonite signposts to follow the route. The trail is a lollypop shape and is recommended in a clockwise loop from the intersection at Bartlett Wash Rd.
Leave the parking area and head west, following Mill Canyon Rd for 2.1 miles. At an intersection with a wash, turn left and continue west on a sandy road that starts to climb. (This section is very sandy during the driest parts of the year. You can use Tusher Wash Rd to the north to avoid this section.)
After .7mi turn right and start following signs for the 3D Jeep Route. Along this stretch of the ride, you'll see a sign for Tusher Tunnel. It is a 0.25mi detour to a natural wind cave. Once at Bartlett Wash Rd, turn left and continue following the 3D Jeep Route. This section of the route is a clockwise lollypop loop that is 16.4 miles long taking you along Bartlett Wash Rd to Dubinky Well Rd. From there, you'll follow Rim of the Rim Rd to Hidden Canyon Rim Rd, finishing on Tusher Wash Rd. Turn right Bartlett Wash Rd. and then left on the 3D Jeep Route ride back to the beginning of the loop.
As an option, you can follow Tusher Wash Rd to Mill Canyon Rd to return to the trailhead.
