Place: Casner Mountain Trail #8
Dates: October 11-13, 2019
Meeting place: Safeway parking lot, Sedona
Time: 9:00AM Saturday the 12th
Depart: 9:30AM

Trails: FR 525, Casner #8, FR 231, and others

Stocker friendly: Questionable. I would say in 2018 it wasn’t stock friendly as the switchback road was badly washed out, but the previous years it was stock friendly. The Forest Ranger indicated APS might do some work on the road, but I have not heard anything.

Camping will be located on the north side of the rim, south of FR 231, at a new camp site that is a little further east on FR 231. GPS coordinates for the camping area are 34.976838,-111.800257.

Casner #8 (the switchback road) is limited to 10 total vehicles by the Forest Service and requires a minimum of 3. I will meet the drivers at Safeway on Saturday morning.

I will go up on Friday morning to get our camping spot, and hopefully mark some trails. We will be camping two nights, Friday and Saturday. If anyone wants to come up Friday, they are more than welcome. This is a great family dispersed camp site with spectacular views.

The maps you will need for this run are the South Coconino National Forest pdf map and the North Coconino National Forest pdf map. The map can be found here: Coconino National Forest - Projects

Looking forward to it. Plenty of forest roads to explore on top which is probably what I will do Saturday. If anyone wants to head up early Friday or even Thursday I'm game.

Ug, supposed to be out of town that weekend. That said, my travel plans tend to change rapidly these days, so hopefully I'll be able to make it for camping.

I am in for the run, plus camping

Word in the 4x4 community is that the road is MUCH worse this year.

Please sign me up for the run and camping. Last year was a blast and have been looking forward to get back there again.
