Thank you sir. I will be keeping a close eye on it. Is there a resource you prefer to keep track of the area?  I usually keep an eye on the various websites.

It gets plastered all over the shops up here that cater to the tourist crowd and the apartment complex I live in sends e-mail updates out

We have a decent GMRS for Beginners thread here you might find interesting.

Thanks for the heads up, we will catch you on the next one.

 

For GMRS the page that @4x4tographer linked to is a good one.  I have watched videos from the "Not A Rubicon" channel  on YouTube. He has some good information.  I also gather information here from the group, everyone who knows about GMRS is pretty helpful here.

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.

 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

This trip is subject to cancellation or postponement due to rain, fire, inclement weather or $10 a gallon gas.🤣

 

Communications:

  • GMRS - Channel 20 (462.675 MHz) 

                   

Other Considerations:

  • Plenty Of Water & Food (pack a lunch and snacks!)
  • Dress for the weather.
  • Folding chairs
  • Sunscreen
  • Camera
  • Emergency supplies / Med Kit
  • No facilities, plan accordingly

 

DRIVER & VEHICLE REQUIREMENTS

This trail is suitable for beginner for 4x4 enthusiasts.

Be advised there is a good mix of terrain including but not limited to some mild off camber sections and loose rock in various spots.

 

Vehicle Minimums:

  • All vehicles are required to meet state legal requirements, (i.e.: current registration and insurance)
  • Each vehicle must have a GMRS or HAM Radio in good working order
  • Have functional seat-belts for each occupant
  • Must have suitable recovery points front and rear
  • High-clearance 4x4's with low-range
  • 30"+ aggressive all-terrain or mud-terrain tires

 

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 10 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.

I have you added to standby, let me know a day or two before if you are able to make it and I'll move you up.  Feel better soon!
