DATE - April 23rd & 24th

This will be an overnight trip.

We'll meet at the Gold Canyon Shell station at 9am. Be ready to depart at 9:15.
Address on Google is listed as 7138 US-60 (south superstition drive), Gold Canyon, AZ 85118

This is a 35 mile round-trip loop (according to what I found online). Should be stocker friendly. Trail goes up to 5,000ft. Hoping to find a spot at elevation for camping.

I have never done this trail before, so let me know if any information is incorrect.

If you've ran it and can provide any assistance, it would be greatly appreciated.

Post up if you're interested in making this run.

Montana Mountain - Always a good time, scenic, and popular run. A few pics from March run there in 2012 where a freak snowstorm added to the fun on the top half of the mountain. Back when I had my Red FJ60, Saddletramp and Longduck checking out the white stuff, coming out in a long snake of rigs.

FWIW: My vote is for the weekend of the 23rd & 24th.

Not that Otter was taking votes.

I am in. It may be a "we are in" but no kids. Tina is undecided.

Not flying back in to town until that Sat night so I cannot make this one. Bums me out as this is one of my favorite trails in the area. Have fun everyone.

This is an awesome scenic trail and not one to be missed. There really isn't anything technical but the "beauty for closeness and peace for proximity" is hard to beat. The history of the the area is also impressive. I would strongly urge anyone on the fence or apprehensive about it to get out! It's one that should not be missed and the turn out looks to be really coming together!

Hope this helps, forgive the actual bad photography.

Possibly in for partial day. Ran this a couple of years ago, great scenery in the spring. I believe it took about 6 hours for those wanting to know who are not camping.

Some view from a few years ago. Easy, very scenic trail. See if you can find the line cabin at the bottom of the switch backs :)
