TUCSON EXPLORING

Hey all,
I am looking at doing some more exploring of the tucson area and Santa Rita mountains just south. I found what appears to be a promising road although its possible its two small for vehical travel. I am not 100% sure.

I would like to go explore soon and am curious if anyone would like to join me. Preferably 4x4 with some recovery gear as I dont know how rough the terrain is but as you can see from the map its a decent loop and covers some pretty good terrain so I would expect it to be a little rough.

http://goo.gl/maps/x3rx3

There is no date or time set for this yet, just seeing if anyone is interested in doing it.

Judging my the thread title, I thought you were coming out of the closet finally. But you know if I am off work, I'm always ready for a good trail ride.

Looks pretty fuckin gnarly in spots, real tight in some areas and check out 31.687961,-110.847676, that fucking boulder in the trail is bigger than my truck lmao... actually looking at it again it's not in the trail at all but whatever. Probably a fun place to explore, but I wouldn't take my truck out there without knowing what I'm getting in to because I can't afford to fix my shit if I break it lol.

Well, like I said, no guarantee it passable by vehicle. There is only one way to find out. Come down to Tucson on Friday and you can ride with me!!! Worst case we can hit Gunsite pass.

I might be down, but I am not looking to brake anything so that would determine if I push forward or back out.

That last section labeled D is part of the Arizona Trail which means no motorized vehicles allowed. I'd think it would be tough to fit a motorcycle on there, much less a Tacoma.

As you mentioned, Gunsight Pass is out there and isn't too gnarly. There are a lot of cool side-roads to explore.

I clicked on the link. On the left of the screen (you might have to expand the view) is a series of navigation points with letter designations.

If you still can't see them, the point I'm talking about is near the southern part of the loop where it heads east. If you zoom in you can see that it's labeled Arizona Trail.

Well there are a ton of other little spur trail around the area. I am probably still going up just to explore and see what I can find.

OK, how about we go wheel on the 24th, I have that day off. My back needs another week or so to heal anyways.

We can do some exploring and go up to Gunsight pass, maybe do a little shooting as well.
