TURKEY CREEK/BLACK CANYON 3.5 MODERATE TO HARD

THIS IS THE SECOND TURKEY CREEK RUN

TURKEY CREEK IS RATED 3.5 MODERATE TO HARD. LIMIT 16 . NO STREET TIRES. TIRE SIZE 32 OR ABOVE (LARGE BOULDERS). NO PICK UP'S . FOUR WHEEL DRIVE REQUIRED. PIN STRIPPING FOR SURE. CB CHANNEL 23. RETURN LATE AFTERNOON. BRING LUNCH . SPARE TIRE. Turkey Creek is a fun trip, lots of water crossing, large boulders , tight turns, shelf roads and drop off's. It starts near the town of Bumble Bee and goes up the creek in Black Canyon to Turkey Creek and ends in the old Gost town of Cleator, AZ population 7. Old Bar in Cleator is the end of the run. Two (2) Bad spots: 1. Between bolders with a drop down. you can lose you fender or tail light . It has a by pass which I take. You will not see this on the Video. 2. A rock wall on the left with a very tight road that has large drop off's down to the creek and is slowly being wash out. I will not take anyone down this part. If you want to do this you are on your own. We will stop and walk up and look at it and each of you must make up your own mind. I will take the by pass. You will not see this on the Video.

Please view the Video of the run with Sun City West on Feb 4, 2014 to see if this is for you.

    Today I took my brand new 2014 on the trail. The CB works, the lockers work, the winch/airpump works and the Staun deflators work. I applied the appropriate amount of Arizona pin striping that any self respecting Jeeper must have and filled the cab full of dust. All thanks to the great time we had on this trail ride.

    Thanks folks for letting me ride along. I look forward to the next one!
