  1. I set that run up gambling a little that the trail would finish being cleared at the top by the time we went. It looks like it will be but I'm still going to bring a strap and a saw just in case there's a few trees left.
  2. Awesome. I'd love to know if there are still any trees blocking the road near the top. If there are someone just needs to bring a chainsaw on the next run .
  3. TRAL was able to repair the washout as well as get allot of branches and downed trees removed from the trail. There was one larger tree that was still laying across the road near the top at the end of the day but a local who was there said he was going to come back with a chainsaw and remove it. This trail should now be passable. It is a solid 3.0 though. High clearance, good offroad tires and at least one locker are recommended.
  4. We went to run this trail last weekend and found some major damage to parts of it along the creek bed along with some downed trees. Fortunately TRAL has agreed to take a look and try to make some repairs. If anyone is interested in helping they would definitely welcome the assistance. It would be a fun way to see what they do as well ( and get out of the desert heat this weekend ). This won't be 8 hours of back breaking labor, just do what you can. The goal is to get the trail passable all the way up to the mine at the top. Items to bring include electric or gas saws, gloves, shovels, buckets, etc. We will be meeting here at 9 AM on Saturday 4/29: Miami Fry's Fuel Center 2115 US 60 Miami, AZ 85539 Some pictures of the trail: https://offroadpassport.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4979 http://azfj.org/index.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=11563&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0 If you plan on coming please post up. Thanks, Owen
  5. TRAL has decided to take a look at this on 4/29 and see about doing some basic repairs to the trail. They are looking for additional volunteers if anyone is interested! I should have more details soon and will post it up as another run.
  6. I posted up a damage report on TRAL for it so that it is at least on the radar.
  7. Thanks for leading us to the ruins Jason! Definitely an interesting area. The Asbestos mine trail is in need of some repair right now. I think a Jeep with armor, lockers and decent lift/tires could get through with some rock stacking but it's a rock crawl at this point.
  8. Because I have nothing better to do at my desk on a Friday afternoon I was looking at the area on Google maps and found a short side trail I might run once we are done if anyone's interested ( depending on time ). NF-488 is just up the road and makes a loop north back onto 288 with a spur going out onto a scenic overlook.
  9. I have an inverter in my Jeep but I believe the max is 150 Watt. It will handle charging a power tool battery but most large tools plugged in directly would overload it.
  10. Looking forward to this! We were up in the Sierra Anchas last weekend ( not this road ) and there were a few trees downed across the roads. I'm going to bring a sawzaw but if anyone has a chainsaw it wouldn't hurt.
  11. That's the one. It doesn't look as bad as I remembered it We didn't go any further so I'm not sure how far it goes.
  12. Count me in! I think rockrails should be strongly recommended on this one. That washout near the start was pretty rocky from what I could see. It may be possible to bypass it through the wash but I'm not sure what that looks like.
