Re: FR 41/FR 37: New River Mountain HP

@Jim_H The high point of the New River Mountains might be Squaw Mountain. If I remember correctly you take seven springs rd to fr 41, which will then take you to fr 37. Up until that point my 2wd frontier did fine.it was dry though. There was some serious ups and downs so if wet definitely need AWD...

Re: Accident on Piestewa Peak

@rcorfman I see where you are coming from but from a parents perspective they are life savers. Having a harness gives my wife and I the ability to still hike with our 3 month old and even our 2 year old. We know our limits and maybe in this incident they didn’t know theirs.. Between my wife and I w...

Re: Camping this weekend or next week

@Ampaz Coming from the south the road Is nearly pavement all the way to the campground. Might be 1-2 short stretches of dirt road. I drove through a couple weekends ago and saw sedans driving the road

Re: Hiking vehicles

@DixieFlyer My wife has a Forester and we love it. Mpg is really good and it Has been great for us with forest roads and even driving in snow. Has respectable clearance as well. We prefer to take it on 90% of our hikes and if the occasional road requires serious high clearance or 4wd we take my 4wd...

Thought this was cool.

It basically says that the Woodbury fire burned 538 acres at a high severity, 29,452 moderate burn, 65,735 low intensity burn, and 28,149 very low to unburned

Re: Woodbury Fire - Superstition Wilderness

@hondah35 You are not being salty. I agree with you. Our sky islands to a desert rat like myself are so precious. And when these sky islands which have limited forest to begin with burn and stands of pine are replaced with manzanita etc, I personally think is devastating. Now I’m all about fire and...

Re: Woodbury Fire - Superstition Wilderness

Absolutely devastating. I wonder if there’s any hope that in the higher elevation areas and moist canyons the fire might burn at a lower intensity/ more mosaic pattern?

Re: Whazzit???

@LosDosSloFolks Yeh I figured, there’s at least a few of those fences in the washes along that road. Can’t say I’ve ever seen that type anywhere else.

Re: Mormon Grove Trailhead

Thanks for the replys everyone! I assumed the road I was hiking(fr 25) would take me there, my mistake it looks like was thinking that the dirt road that goes north off the old beeline highway by the Cross F Ranch would take me there. Now I know that is actually not an option and is private property...

Mormon Grove Trailhead

3 times I’ve driven by the pull off for the dirt road that heads towards Mormon Grove Trailhead and I swear it always says closed, trespassing, private property something like that? Is that trailhead no longer accessible by road?

The closest guage looks like saw mountain which has gotten 1.69 inches of rain in the last 24 hours. Falls should definitely be flowing but I’m not sure how intense.

Towers Mountain in the Bradshaw’s at 6.57 in of rain so far today! Wow impressive. I imagine Mt. Union is somewhere up there too but their rain gauge hasn’t worked in months.

Sycamore Canyon - Bushnell to Round Valley, A

In the description on fr 22 I’m reading something about a gate right off the highway and looking on satellite I believe I see a gate as well. Is there no vehicular access past the gate? Is this the preferred parking spot for hiking down Sycamore Canyon?

Re: Hiking vehicles

@Jim_H I have a 2016 Nissan Frontier and have beaten the crap out of it going on almost 3 years. No issues whatsoever. Very reliable truck IMO. Quite a bit cheaper too than it’s competitors.

Re: Hiking vehicles

@Jim_H I’ve managed to get everywhere I’ve wanted to go (except once) in my 2wd truck but yes I would kill for that 4wd just to have that added level of comfort. Having at least high clearance if not a 4wd vehicle is I feel a requirement to get to all the finest hiking destinations This state offer...
