There is some cool stuff around the Flourance area that I am interested in. A lot of old mine trails that are considered "Moderate" and "Difficult."
MATINEZ CANYON LOOP
COKE OVENS.. This one looks very intereesting and is 90% a moderate trail with a small bit that is considered difficult. Looks like really cool old coke ovens and left over buildings. Its a 6-7 hour trip round trip start to finish. according to the book.
Walnut Canyon.. ANother moderate trail with AWESOME views. 20 miles, 5-6 hours.
There is some shorter, some longer and also quite a few in the Saguaro Lake area we went a few weeks ago.
RENO PASS (difficult)
SUNFLOWER MINE (Moderate/Difficult)
FOUR PEAKS (EASY) but beautiful vistas.
TELEGRAPH LINE ROAD (DIFFICULT)
APACHE TRAIL (VERY EASY/EASY) but REALLY COOL views
I dont know how much of the first group is burned up from that fire if it was in that area. Look up some of those trails and lets hit one. I am thinking something in the moderate (maybe some difficult) for a first time run unless someone has been to one of these areas before and knows more about it.
look at the bold^^
that trail i would suggest not doing unless you have sliders, front and rear bumper, and a lift. josh would be maybe okay because of his short wheel base, but you chas, your steps would go bye bye
