This looks fun, good old ghost town run. Never been to any ghost towns in AZ before. But I can't make it this weekend. I can maybe in the future AZXC will plan ghost town run I can attend. Let know how the trial is if you go.

Sunny Marcin and I ran most of that trail at night, we stopped about 2/3 of the way as it was getting late,   awesome elevation changes and great scenery.  Go before it gets too hot and bring lots of water, you are heading out there a ways.  If I can swing the time off I will go, I like that trail alot.

Cool...thanks to all who are replying; looking to set something up on April 6th or 7th (weekend after Easter) and it does not matter which day.  Would want to meet up around 7 AM at the staging area on the left soon after the pavement ends on Table Mesa (west side).

There's a clean-up at Table Mesa on the 6th so maybe the 7th would work better?

Just an idea....

Thanks for the info, Scott...the 7th would probably work better then.

OK it appears Sunday, April 7th is a go for this; anyone interested please respond and plan on meeting up at the staging area on the left after the pavement ends on the west side of Table Mesa Road at 7 AM.  My rig is a red 2008 X with a Yakima rack and new Xoskel sliders (yay).  Looking forward to making new friends and a nice day of wheeling and exploring.

Kind Regards,

Scott

Are you sure you want to do 7am?  That would mean leaving at 6.

7 or 8 am really makes no diff to me if that is the concensus.

Compromise is in order:  how about 7:30 AM?  Marrgie and I can be there at that time. ;D

Works for me. So 0730 it is?
Title: Re: Tip Top Mine
Post by: Freerangechicken on April 06, 2013, 12:26:50 PM
Yes, Margie and I plus two dogs, Angel and Rocket.

Nobody showed, so at 8 AM, Margie, Angel, Rocket and I took off and tried to make it across the Agua Fria per the instructions in Az Backroads 2nd Edition (Wells/Petersen) and could not make it across due to deep water crossing.  After a few side roads and other dead ends, we finally took 9987 to the river and were able to cross with no problem and complete the trip.  The day was rather warm but the trip was enjoyable, especially the history and looking at the Tip Top ruins.
