There's a lot of great reasons that folks from Phoenix to Scottsdale, AZ love lifted pickup trucks, but while the look and feel that offer on the open road is certainly appealing, it’s the off-road capability they bring to the table. That being said, if you don't know where the best trails are, it can feel like you're all dressed up with nowhere to go. Fortunately, we've been off-roading enthusiasts here at Lifted Trucks for years now, so we've always got some great tips on where to go to find off-road adventure near Phoenix, Mesa, and Glendale, AZ.
