Back Way to Crown King

  • Dec 15, 2012 · 8:30 AM
  • McDonalds

Per this discussion: http://www.meetup.com/The-Phoenix-East-Valley-4x4-Meetup-Group/messages/boards/thread/28975632 there will be a December run to Crown King up the back way. The return to I-17 will be via the front way.

The group will leave the McDonald's promptly at 8:30 a.m.

There will be a stop at the top for lunch, but bring some food/snacks along in case the trip to the top takes longer than expected.

This is a stock vehicle friendly run. Modified 4x4's will have the opportunity to take challenging bypasses.

Crown King is a 30+ mile run up the back way and about as long going down the front way. Plan on being out all day.

    Awesome trip--the last 5 miles were a little hairy for us, but all is well that ends well. Thanks Joe for being our guardian angel.

    I was there last Dec leading a group of over 60 for the Wounded for Warriors. I had to rescue 13 of them when we got up into the snow & ice.What an adventure that was.. I am game for anything. Got the snow chains ready..

    December 12, 2012

    • Geno

      We wouldn't let you get stranded....At the very least we would ask you to help push us out!

      December 12, 2012

  • Joe O.

    Would the group like to by the Castel hot springs this time.

    It will just add about 20 min to the trip..

  • Joe O.

    I have two more rigs that would like to go. I say the more the merrier..Let me what to tell them..

    December 3, 2012

    • Steve S

      Joe, unfortunately the run is full at this point. There is a waiting list available for members of East Valley 4x4. If we have some withdrawals from the run before the 15th, waiting list folks will fill in. After that, it may work out that there will be spots available for your rigs. So, short answer: No for now, maybe in the future.
