Traveling with PJE the Freedom to Wander is Yours!
Pacheta Falls is a picturesque 131 foot waterfall at an elevation of 8,073 feet. The falls are surrounded by tall Ponderosa Pine and Douglas Fir trees and shearing cliffs that lead towards the Black River within the White Mountains. Pacheta Falls is spectacular and worth the several hour drive leading to beautiful washboard forest roads where you will hike and explore this hidden gem in the high country of Arizona.
Take a trip with Private Jeep Excursions to explore the majestic Mogollon Rim, Promontory Butte, Rim Lakes, and other historic attractions on the plateau. The Mogollon Rim is a geological feature 200 miles long cutting across the state of Arizona. During this scenic drive atop the rim we will stop at a number of overlook vista points to take in the expansive sights. Often seen are family of Elk grazing along the rim. The sunsets up on the rim are breathtaking! We will also explore one of the more remote rim lakes. At this elevation you will enjoy temperatures 20 to 30 degrees cooler than the Phoenix area.
Take a water hike with Private Jeep Excursions to the Hanging Gardens through the beautiful West Clear Creek Wilderness. The trail leads upstream into a deep, narrow gorge which West Clear Creek has cut into the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau. The downstream end of the trail has many clear pools, slickrock water slides, and a tree-shaded riparian areas all tucked away between red rock canyon walls.
Secret Canyon hiking trail lies within the Red Rock Secret Mountain Wilderness in beautiful Sedona, Arizona. This is a wide valley surrounded on three sides by high red cliffs split by many deep, hidden canyons. This canyon is similar to the West Fork of Oak Creek as it is quite steep, densely wooded and contains a permanent stream with pools and waterfalls with some confined passageways. Secret Canyon is much less traveled so offers more tranquility.
The Jug within Salome Creek is an extremely fun canyon that resembles a water park. Best done in the morning in order to get in the water during the hot time of the day. This canyon can be done without a harness, as it only has one rappel which can be jumped 25′ into deep water.
Private Jeep Excursions “Four Peaks Sunset Jeep Tour” departs from Fountain Hills at 4pm. We will travel up to the 360 degree lookout point to view Roosevelt Lake on one side and the valley as the sun sets on the other side. We travel back the same way we came enjoying the nighttime sky as the sun sets creating a spectacular show.
