Fishing Sunday 8/20/2017: Backway to Crown King (Near Phoenix, AZ)

hurrah for short notice! Bradywgn and I are going to run the Backway to Crown King trail tomorrow if anyone wants to join us...

meetup: be fueled up and ready to leave at 8:00 AM tomorrow (Sunday) at the McDonalds on Carefree Highway just east of the I-17.
map right here...

this trail is rated moderate. 4x4 low range, aggressive tires, basic skid plates, and at least one frame-mounted recovery point are required. a small lift is recommended.

for those not familiar with it, the trail takes about 4 hours to go from Lake Pleasant to Crown King where there is a bar/restaurant plus a little store with gas (usually) and not much else. then you take a gravel road down to the I-17 to return to Phoenix. the return trip takes a couple hours. Crown King is about 5,700 feet in elevation so it should be a fair bit cooler there.

bring plenty of water, some snacks and an easy going attitude! we're planning to buy lunch in Crown King.

since this is last minute notice, feel free to just show up at the meeting spot... but be on time or you'll miss us!
