I am interested in doing some exploring in Nevada out near the Alamo/Pioche/Caliente area. I want to go see the Delamar Ghost Town to start. I then want to explore the Silver State Trail System that is in that area. I found a GPX file for Delamar via Alamo Canyon Road on Trails Offroad. The trailhead is just south of Alamo,NV. From Delamar we would go north on Helene and Delamar Ghost Towns trail to HWY 93. From where that trail ends the Silver State Trail System is just north of the highway. If I do not get to this next year then 2024 is when I will. What I have as far as information: 2 trails with waypoints & POI's. A GPX file for the Silver State Trail System.(All the colored in trails West of Pioche) A paper map of the area that shows restrictions of certain trails to certain types of vehicles. An itch to go. Average weather for that time of year. What I do not have: Waypoints or POI's on the SSTS. I do know there are information boards etc. out there. I also believe there is a scattering of old mining operations & possibly homesteads. A final route. This area covers a lot of ground so dissecting is in the future. A crystal ball that can see if the guberment is going to make things worse than they are now as far as gas prices go. Alamo is a little over 6 hours away from where I am so that would mean a long weekend. My plan as of now is to get a room in Alamo on a Friday night, run some trails Saturday and camp. Then run some trails Sunday and either get done early and go home or run until Sunday afternoon and camp or hotel it Sunday night. Could be fun, could be a waste of time but we'll never know unless we go. If this is something you may be interested at some point in time let me know. Let's discuss!

What are some "day trip", Saturday or Sunday trails where the start of the trail is roughly within two hours of Phoenix that you would like to go over the next two or three months if only someone would lead the trip? I am leaving this wide open, could be easy and scenic, could be challenging and an opportunity to test your vehicle or your driving skills. Maybe there is just some trail you want to explore but don't want to go alone. Just some suggestions, in the three major directions from Phoenix, to open the mind: One moderate level run I like to take people on for awesome views of the Sedona cliffs (weather and smoke permitting) is my Carefree to Dugas route Schenbly Hill Road (easy to mildly moderate) or Broken Arrow (moderate to mildly difficult), maybe two-for-one in a day Hackberry Creek loop (TrailsOffroad figure 8 version or the FunTreks shorter figure 6 version). Both are difficult, the TrailsOffroad version is just more of the difficult and more scenery. Terminator lower and upper, add in Black Canyon OHV trail and you have a nice full day run (decently difficult to extreme) I have a longer, more difficult version of Turkey Creek Trail from Bumble Bee exit to Spring Valley Diamondback Gulch (aka Greasy Spoon). Moderate Smiley Rock, difficult I have a route around the Eagletail Wilderness with a nice, not too long hike near Courthouse Rock, if you don't mind the heat of the summer, driving is easy to maybe mildly moderate Any of these or whatever else, comment what is on your mind at the moment. Where do you want to go?
