@KtroubleA got a new offroad camping trailer and wants to test it out - so we're going camping near Payson for the weekend and running a trail on Saturday.

 

join us for camping, the trail run, or both!

 

 

CAMPING:
 

  • meetup:
    - at 
    Home depot parking lot in Payson, AZ (map...)
    - on Friday 4/16 at 10am
    - or join us anytime using the directions below.
     
  • directions to camp: 
    - go north-east on Houston Mesa road (across-from & just past the Home Depot) till there's a large "Y" with a gravel road on the right.
    - take that right fork which is Payette Draw Rd / NF-198. the gravel road has some rocky/washed-out sections and ruts, high-clearance vehicle recommended (2wd OK).
    - we'll camp somewhere along that gravel road (we'll put up an ORP sign you can look for). we're shooting for the area near where Pyeatt Draw crosses the road (map...).
    - if you get to a large "T" with a stop sign (Control Rd), you went too far. 
    - look for this maker to find our camp (we may not be visible from the main gravel road):

glad to have you - FYI, i don't think there's room for the RV right where i'm thinking. there are some larger spots within a quarter mile, but they've thinned the forest so much recently that there's no real shade.

@theksmith  Thanks, we are planning to tent camp, but will most likely drive the truck.  Do you know if fires are allowed? We have plenty of wood leftover from our winter pile.
