3/23 Bull Springs Road Night Run

I have to work this weekend so no Rug Road Camp Out. Trying to organize a little something. Cross posted on AZFJ as well. All are welcome.

What: Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy Bull Springs Road Night Run

When: Sat 3/23 Tucson meet up at around 5:30pm

Where: Fry's at Ajo and the I19:
3640 South 16th Avenue
Tucson, AZ 85713
Hit the road by 6pm

Why: Why not

Who: Currently myself and two Heep TJ's.



Bull Springs Road is about an hour south of Tucson. Very easy trail.

Here is the Experience AZ review
We will be using the Charles Wells Guide to Arizona Backroads & 4WD Trails (2nd Edition) as our guide.

I am going to strap my BBQ in the bed of my truck and bring a large ice chest. I'll have Brats and we can BBQ somewhere along the trail.

Creatures of the night

Got stuck behind these guys for a few minutes:

Otherwise this was a pretty cool run, with a little bit of everything.

Rug Road camp out was intense. It took us 9 hours (with some stops along the way) to go about 25 miles. Some of us got body damage.

Wow that's crazy. FYI from what I understand Bull Springs was a little rougher than it has been in the past as well. The first section of the trail was definitely tougher than the Charles Wells Guide and online reviews would lead you to believe. It was nothing that good clearance couldn't help though, we just had to take it slow.

Dan and I had a similar experience with a cotton-tail rabbit. It was just running in front of us for about a quarter mile before it hopped off the road.
