Mogollon Rim- 7-16-22 - Easy To Moderate

 

My wife and I will be in Payson 7-15 through 7-17 escaping the summer heat. She is not a camping person so we are staying at a hotel in town. There are camping spots all over up there if you want to camp Friday(7-15) or Saturday night or both nights.

 

My plan is to run a few easy Mogollon Rim trails on 7-16 while we are up there. I want to revisit the area and check out some cabins, one of which is a short hike off one of the trails.  If my math is correct we are looking at about 60 miles total. These are mainly easy trails where, based on prior experience, we can make good time.

 

Here's  the trails I have mapped out.

  • Rim Road-  I am starting on the East side off of HWY 260. This will be run West to the next trail.
  • Cabin Loop Trail- We will run a good portion of this trail over to the next trail.
  • FR 139G- We will run this short 2 mile trail south. Per TrailsOffroad there is an old homestead next to Aspen Spring that is worth checking out. They say the hike is easy and less than a 1/2 mile(one way) off this trail.
  • Dick Hart Ridge- The previous trail ends here so we will continue south until this trail ends at Rim Road(FR 300)
  • Rim Road-  We will run this West to HWY 87 from where Dick Hart Ridge ends.  .

 

 

Meet-Up & Departure:

  • Time: 0830 at the Rim Road trailhead off of Hwy 260. (Old Rim Road Visitor Center) There is an area there for all of us to stage up and air down. If folks want to meet 30 minutes earlier I am open to that as well.
  • Depart NLT 0900
  • Google Map here.
  • No service stations near by, recommend to top off off in or around Payson on the way in.

SIGN-UPS

Post a reply in this thread saying you'd like to go and I'll put you on the roster! I am setting it at 9 including me for now. Once the limit is reached, anyone asking to sign-up will be placed on the standby list. Please don't hesitate to sign-up as a standby because people often do drop-out so you may get to still go.

@LaZorraRoja you are in if you are still interested.

 

@snoopy61 I added two more spots and gave one to you if you are still interested.
