Back Way Crown King Saturday 8/24/19

Recommended Posts

Posting this on behalf of Craigger....


Craig and Alaina are running the backway to Crown King on Saturday 8/24/19 and would like to welcome you to join them. They are spending the night up there at an Inn but you can return home down the front side if you'd prefer.


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.


Meetup Time: 10am

Where: Lake Pleasant area. Where Rt 74 and castle hot Springs meets. Parking area on the right (33°50'06.3"N 112°18'55.6"W). N Castle Hot Springs Rd, Morristown, AZ 85342


GPS Meetup: 33.835069, -112.315440

What to bring: Plenty of water, snacks, can have lunch at the Saloon on top.
