Sadly it looks like this run may not happen...... impending closures due to extreme fire danger in Prescott National Forest, going into effect June 1. The end of this trail goes through closure areas. Please keep an eye on this thread and I will confirm one way or another closer to the date.

Anyone have any ideas for possible alternative runs that won't go through closed areas? I'll be thinking... :hmm:

While it is passenger car rated it is a dusty, washboard road. I enjoy the slow backway up much more then the road back down to I-17. Been a while since I've up there but last time I did on the road thru Bumble Bee came upon a brand new Tacoma with a temporary plate on its side. Driver lost control on the washboard. That is what I hate about washboard roads, get up to a speed it seems to float on the washboard and everything is fine until it isn't. Next thing you know your laying on your side wondering what happened.

Surprise AZ.
I am a definite maybe. If I am heading out I will meet everyone at the air down area instead. No use doubling back...

Westwood family are committed and ready for this ROTM if closures are lifted. We will watch for additional news. Eager to try out the new suspension :)

Any updates? I cleared my schedule that day and am itching to get out on the trail. Did anybody come up with an alternative run that day if we can’t do this?
