Itinerary:

  • Join me Saturday for a laid back run from Lake Pleasant up to Crown King via an overall easy route that has a couple short moderate sections. Note that this is NOT the typical (more difficult) "Back Way to Crown King" trail.
  • We'll enjoy cooler temps while dispersed camping at around 5,000 ft elevation near Johnson Flat or Minnehaha.
  • Sunday morning we'll take a short easy section of Senator Highway over to Crown King. From there the normal graded road will take you back down to I-17 (just north of Black Canyon City).

 

Meetup: 

  • 9:00AM on Saturday 4/25 at the McDonalds/Albertsons Parking Lot on Carefree Highway, just East of I-17.
  • Map here...

 

Required:

  • Street-legal high-clearance 4x4 rig with a low-range transfer case option and all-terrain or better tires.
  • Suitable front or rear recovery points.
  • Full skid plates & rock rails are highly recommended.
  • A stock high-clearance rig such as a 4x4 Wrangler or Tacoma with all-terrain tires should be fine. Lower rigs would need a small suspension lift.

 

Important Info:

  • This is dispersed camping - there are no facilities!
  • Be prepared for possible chilly weather at night.
  • Don't forget your tent, sleeping bag, chair, food, water, etc.
  • Comms are on CB channel 4 or ham simplex 146.46 Mhz.
  • Please follow social distancing guidelines while on the run and at camp.

 

 

Limited to 8 rigs at camp, 10 rigs total (i.e. if a couple extra people want to trail ride only, we can oblige
