You can hike in FR25A by parking at the intersection of FR25/25A, but if you plan to drive in to the lower start of TR86 via FR25A, I would suggest you meet the above 4x4 minimum requirements and be a skilled 4x4 driver. Also, we now have a missing HAZ member in from the Peeley TH and the Maricopa Sheriff Dept issued this recent 1/1/11 alert to us: "Just FYI- a 65 year old man in a jeep slid off the mountain in that area today and was air lifted out with life threatening injuries. I think he was on the 25A road. If the FS hasn't closed 201 yet I'm sure they will. Please remind the folks going up there to search to be very cautious."Grasshopper wrote:by Grasshopper » Feb 10 2007 4:36 pm
On 11/4/06 & 2/9/07 I was in FR25A the 3 miles back to the South end beginning of Trail#86 (The Cornucopia Tr),..IF you plan to drive in (any portion) on "FR25A", I strongly recommend that to safely do so, you have a 4x4 vehicle with 31" Tires minimum, and a Rear Axle Locker, unless you plan to drive in on an ATV .
do you mean closed all the way from from 87? There's private ranches down by the Cross F trailhead so I don't think they would do that.te-wa wrote:has anyone seen 201 closed at the Sunflower exit?
I had thought (and I may be wrong) that there were two gates that are risk for F/S closure--> the 1st one at the start of FR201 at the cattle guard crossing and the 2nd one like you say at the intersection of FR201/FR25. There may only be this one gate at the intersection of FR201/FR25 that restricts further access up FR201.te-wa wrote:i mean closed at the start of 201.

After the fire, wasn't FR25A permanently gated and locked at its intersection with FR25? Prior-to the fire and subsequent FR25A road damage further in, FR25A was a fairly serious 4WD Club Route to it's end at the TR260 intersection area (with TR260 a uphill to connect with the AZT Trail #95 connection).Sredfield wrote: My concern is whether one could get a tracked trail machine into FR Trail 260 from FR 25 via FR 25A. Once at trail 260 you could rebuild quite a bit of trail that really needs it.
