    I was thinking of heading out to Gila Bend area to do some wheeling. There is a close group of about 4 trails:

    Agua Caliente Road- 45 miles, book- 3 hours trip...probably more like 1.5 if that.

    Robbins Butte Wildlife Area Trail- 15 miles, book- 1 hour

    Margie's Peak Trail- 15 miles, book-1.5 hours

    Butterfield Pass- 12 miles, book-1 hour


    The drive from Phoenix to Gila Bend is about an hour and 15 minutes.

    let me know if you are interested! I plan on bringing a cooler with drinks and snacks.

    Sycamore imo is like a last minute kind of trail. If I plan it I wanna go somewhere different. I'm down for a last munute sycamore run. Depending on thursday maybe we can go after picking up the passes for the June run

    Hey man nothing wrong with sycamore! I personally want to go explore more of what AZ has to offer!

    Now that i think about it, I have never gone wheeling with you Oliver.

    This indeed is very true!

    I was actually thinking about you just now looking in my trails book, being in Yuma and all. I was thinking of making my way out there. They have a few cool looking trails, one is about 55 miles and takes you almost right up to the border, I would really like to check that one out!

    There is some small trails, but they honestly are not worth the 3 hour drive.
    Unless if you miss me that much :p

    The god damn things are all over the shallows at McCormick Ranch Golf Course! Must have been a hundred of them throughout the shores...they were definitely spawning


    Oli I'm down to do some trails up north! We should get together one night, have a few brews and go through that trail book of yours :cool:
