In the never-ending pursuit to satisfy our clubs insatiable appetite for something new, different, or kind of crazy. B P is going to explore some of our Native American ruins between Drake and Perkinsville area. We will meet at FR 354, aka Perkinsville Rd and FR 181 approximately 12 miles west of Drake or 2 miles east of the Verde River bridge crossing.The excursion will be leaving the camp at 8:00 am. Most of us will be riding mountain bikes, but you can ride or drive what ever you think will make the 28 mile journey, (dirt bike, quad, 4 wheel drive, horse etc). The trip there is fairly rough terrain even on the MTB I expect to hike a bike for a mile or so. When we arrive at the ruins we will hike another 1/2 to 3/4 mile to the site. It is challenging but well worth the effort. This will take most of the day so you will need to bring food, water, hiking boots, long pants recommended. And yes I did say camp. We will be camping starting Friday night thru Sunday morning. All are welcome to join, or just show up Sat morning for the day.
UPDATE: A few changes for the ride. So that it will be warmer at the start, the ride will start at 9am. We are planning to meet at the Safeway in Chino at 8:15 and caravan to the start so that everyone knows where to go. Be sure and bring lots of food and water!!!
