What we're about
Upcoming events (1)
We'll meet at the second Speedway in Florence then head down to the Florence-Kelvin Highway to do Gila River Loop, also known as Cochran Road, which is a moderate trail with water crossings. We'll stop under the rail road trestle for the obligatory group photo and play in the river. If it's not too hot and there is majority interest we can also cross and take Martinez Canyon Rd around to Box Canyon and exit Price Rd or Mineral Mt (which would include the Box Canyon waterfall) and exit Cottonwood on 79 or Reymert Mine on 60 instead of doing the loop. Either of these would make it a full day on the trail so plan accordingly! Martinez Canyon Rd would provide a nice challenge for stock Jeeps or a good experience for those wanting to increase their skills.
If there is time and interest I'll add some demonstrations on how to get unstuck with your Hi-Lift jack.
This run is cross-posted on Heavy Metal by East Valley Rockers.
