State trust land

Do you need a permit to drive your Jeep on state trust land in AZ? We're taking our TH down to AZ and I would like to explore some of the off road trails. It would great to meet up with some other TH owners. We're moving to Green Valley AZ.

I think that is basically the case in all BLM land since you have a licensed vehicle there isn't a special permit needed. Though there maybe a use permit?!?!

I just recently moved to AZ so I can't give a definitive answer, but I took the TH up to Sycamore Creek in the Four Peaks Wilderness area, and there was no permit required there.

Looks like you need to get OHV a decal sticker to drive on existing roads and trails on state trust lands and a permit to camp and hike ect......"Arizona State Trust Lands are not public lands. The OHV decal allows vehicles to cross Trust Lands and operate on existing roads and trails only. A recreation permit is required for all other uses such as hiking, camping, picnicking, and leaving a staging vehicle on State Trust Lands. A permit is not required to travel on county maintained dirt roads or routes with access easements. For complete information on the recreation permit and its requirements, please visit https://land.az.gov/natural-resource...tional-permits http://azstateparks.com/ohv/permits.html ...

I would call them to make sure

This has been a bizarre issue in AZ, particularly on the land just east of Phoenix, below the Peralta Canyon trailhead. They have sent US marshals to harass people who were travelling on the state trust land, but the roads are typically administered and maintained by the counties or BLM/USFS. They don't want people camping on the State Trust land without getting a permit, and randomly stop people and harass them. You may be fairly sure you are within your rights, but it is hard to argue with people wearing flak jackets and carrying automatic weapons.

I have thanks, I paid $20 bucks for a permit. Already done two off road excursions down here in southern AZ. One moderate trail and one easy. TH handled them without even breaking a sweat. So many places to go and see.

The permits are easy to get. It's not really a permit for permits sake, but a way to generate some revenue to pay for maintenance and clean up stuff, and keep the people out that are there to just shoot up cacti and drink.

$20 annual covers most places... with some special areas excluded.
