I don't have the coordinates for the first part, but you can get the map of the Patagonia Ghost Town Loop here:

It's free to sign up and then you can download the GPX and I have a GPX viewer on my iPhone that I paid like $3 for. Definitely worth it!

Awesome.. thanks for that.. i never have been that close to the border, i missed a good opportunity that day..

Yeah no problem! I was looking at mine the whole time we were doing the trail and it is accurate for sure.

And don't worry about that! We can always go back it was definitely a fun run! Like I said we might be going camping there this April... :hmm:

@drenmaster recorded the entire trip on my gaia app. If you check the map it’ll be clear where the loop started and you’ll also get to see the other POIs we stopped at along the loop. One caveat is I started recording after we started a ways down on Salero Rd. and accidentally kept it rolling after getting back into Tucson. Let me know if you have questions. Also, Ben @D_Web led the loop so I’m giving him credit where it’s due. :)

It was my first time using the app on a run and found it fairly easy to use. A user friendly interface counts for a lot in my opinion. Currently I have the free version, but am considering a subscription service for enhanced features.

Oh wait, was there a sign posted?? Haha.
It was remarkable how smooth most of the dirt roads were out there. The only rough patch was just north of the mine entrance, which I expect will be smoothed out once the mine starts producing product.
There is some beautiful country out there, especially the grass lands leading to Lockiel. The higher elevation area have nice potential for good camping grounds. Maybe one day soon...

I got to the border fence right in front of the school. Yea there was a small sign said no trespassing.. o well. It was definitly a smooth ride. But there was more water out there than last time, the last rain had to be a a lot becuase there was tire tracks all over..

Next club meeting we can rent this place out.. haha
