July 24-25 Camino Del Diablo Trip

Postponed

Camino Del Diablo,

Starting point: I-8, exit 30 at Wellton
Finishing point: Arizona 85, 2.2 miles south of Ajo
Total Mileage: 114.1
Driving Time: 2 days
Remoteness rating: scale is 0 to 2, this is a +2...as remote as it gets

This trail will require more than just a sack lunch...

Rating for the trail 4: High-clearence required, 4WD's prefered. Expect a rough road surface with rocks larger than 6" but reasonable driving lines will be available. Sands will be deep and will require low tire pressures. Substantial sections of single-lane shelf road, moderate grades, and sections of moderately loose road surface.

To obtain the range permits please either visit in person or by mail all any of the following locations:

There is a 20 minute video that you need to watch in order to obtain the pass. Everyone that will be going on this trip will need to go get a pass, not just the people driving...passengers as well.

Map of trail


Before the trip:

Go over your vehicle: make sure battery is good, good hoses and belts, no leaks from anywhere, ball-joints/uniballs and suspension components are good.

Items needed:

Food and water
Small shovel or multipurpose ax, pick, shovel, and/or sledgehammer
Recovery straps/heavy duty yank straps/ratchet tie-downs
2 spare tires with wheels (if your a boss and can pop the beads on/off then thats on you)
Hi-lift/off-road jack with base plate for soft sand
Emergency medical kit
Spare key just in case
Jumper leads
Flashlight
Portable Air compressor
Gas, engine oil, other vehicle fluids

Worth Considering

Tool kit with some spare parts: you know what breaks on your truck, be prepared
Tire repair kit: ARB makes a bad-ass one
Fire extinguisher: 5lbs is basic minimum for actually putting a fire out
Pop-up tents for shade during breaks

List of people:

Oliver (pass)- OBA, stand alone compressor, 60" Farmer Jack
Scott
David
Josh
Eric- Strap, shovel
George (4runner)

Hmm I will have to look into that, thanks Matt.

Unfortunately I am not to informed of trails such as this throughout the valley or nearby so I might have to do a good bit of research!

Prerunning trail would be closer to the sand dunes near Yuma. Lots of open space to reach those speeds.
There is mexico as well.

There are no 2 hour trails near Yuma, mostly because the surrounding desert is either military testing grounds or a nature reserve. But Cliff was thinking about a trail that might fit what your looking for.
