Sedona - Schnebly & Broken Arrow Picnic

Recommended Posts

Saturday October 20th 8AM. Meetup changed.

 

Heading to Sedona to run Broken Arrow. This is the premier "Pink Jeep Tour" and the notable "Stairs". At this time I plan to take Schnebly Hill Rd. down to Sedona prior to Broken Arrow. I have heard that this road is bumpy, so be prepared for that. I'd like to picnic broken arrow @ Chicken Point about 1pm. Bring Chairs. I will provide brownies too.

 

I am classifying this is moderate, however, some of the optional diversions can be difficult.

 

Meet Up: _Flexible_ Post or PM

 

Takes about 1.5 hours from PHX to the trailhead on I-17 (95 Miles)

Be prepared for mud on the upper half of Schnebly Hill Rd.

 

End: After Broken Arrow light exploring and dinner in Sedona OR Return back to Phoenix on your own.

 

REQUIREMENTS:

- High-clearance vehicle, a mild lift with oversize A/T or M/T tires

- Working CB (Ch 4) Optional HAM 146.460mhz

- Drivers and vehicles must meet all state/federal legal requirements (seatbelts, insurance, etc.)

 

RECOMMENDATIONS:

- Camera!

- Rear-Lockers (if you want to take on the optional climbs)

- Hiking Boots (if you want to climb around submarine rock for some good pictures)

- Airing down will help the bump(s) on the first run and seriously improve traction on the red rock.

 

Attending: (limited to 5 rigs)

Trip Summary

 

Fantastic weather. SonoranWanderer was able to join me for the day. We handed out 2 business cards for the club for fellow Jeepers at Broken Arrow. Lunch on Chicken Point/Broken Arrow was great.

 

Inane clicking sound from front end esp. in turns however we made it back in 1 piece. May have to head to the shop.
