para-spacerHAVE YOU EVER used a 4x4 guidebook and quickly realized the author was never there? Ever wasted all day on a dog of trail because information you found online was just plain wrong? Ever unfolded a map, only to find your trail runs off the edge of the page? If so, then you know why our guidebooks are so popular.

We start by driving many trails, then select only the best. If it’s fun, it goes in our book, if not, the trash. We're sure you’ll come home with a smile on your face.


para-spacerWe design a custom map for each trail and add precise directions, including GPS waypoints. You can also purchase data cards with tracklogs that match the book. Photos show trouble spots, not just scenery, so you get everyone home safely.

We cover all levels from easy SUV backroads to difficult Jeep trails, as well as trails for ATVs, UTVs and dirt bikes. If it’s off-highway fun you seek, you’ve come to the right place.

By Charles A. Wells

On a recent four-wheel drive run, I was spotting for co-author, Matt Peterson, as he attempted to drive one of our Jeeps up a steep rock face. At the top of the climb, the Jeep’s hood blocked his view of a large rock on his right. Because the climb required speed and momentum, he zipped past me to a point where he couldn’t see hand signals without turning his head back. As the Jeep headed for the rock, I yelled “right! right!” Immediately, to my horror, I realized I should have been yelling “left! left!” It happened so quickly, there was no time to correct my mistake.

Fortunately, at the last second, Matt saw the rock and veered left barely missing it. He looked a little confused when he got out of the Jeep and walked toward me. I’m not sure if he thought I was trying to kill him, or what. All I could say was “oops, sorry”—little consolation under the circumstances. It could have been a far worse situation if there had been a cliff on the right instead of a visible rock.
