There were reports that the few were making it bad for the many--ATV riders this time--at the Reavis Canyon TH. Apparently they had moved the barriers and were going past the TH and up the non-motorized Arizona Trail. We considered steel barriers but that would require a lot of time, expense and effort. It may come to that but we felt the most bang for the buck was to just go roll the rocks back into place and recreate the barriers that filter out ATV's but allows horses, hikers, cattle and bikes through.

We met at the Hewitt Canyon road at 8:30, consolidated tools and people into the vehicles and made our way up the surprisingly dry FR 650 to the trailhead. It's rough but certainly no problem, the rain the Phoenix area received did not extend to this area.

The original plan was to use rock bars to roll these back into place. Rolling these monsters would not have been possible, we would have been lucky to get one or two moved. Bill showed up with his winch, rigging and experience with same, and that made all the difference in the world.

Temps rose a bit quicker than expected, but we still managed get all the rocks that were within range moved and bedded where they will protect the trail from the few who don't play by the rules.

On the way back we rebuilt the AZT/FR 650 crossing. It has eroded down to a steep embankment, so we built a ramp and rip rapped it with rock.

A good day on the AZT with great folks! Thank you Gary, Pablo, John R., John M., Don, Bill and Nancy!
