Title: Sheep's Bridge Run (Sat, April 26th @ 08:00)
Post by: AZ-Ted on April 01, 2014, 12:35:49 AM
Hello AZXC, I'm making a run out to Sheep's Bridge at the end of this month.  Date is set for Saturday, April 26th.  The plan is to take Table Mesa Rd (East side of I-17) to FR24, and then head north to Bloody Basin Road (FR269), and finally east to the Verde River where Sheep's Bridge is located.  If you go, you will need an Arizona State Trust Land Permit, as the East side of Table Mesa Rd (FR41) is on state trust land.

This run will take most of the day.  Bring food / water / sunscreen, etc., etc.  We will be stopping at the Verde River to eat lunch and hang out at the river.  There are some good photo ops there.

Meeting Time / Location:  08:00 at Table Mesa Rd (exit 236 on I-17).  Meet on the East side of the freeway.  Please make sure your fuel tank is full before starting this run.

Here is a description of the trail:  http://www.azxterraclub.com/forum/index.php?topic=435.0 (http://www.azxterraclub.com/forum/index.php?topic=435.0)

Here is a link to the state trust land permit application:  http://www.azland.gov/programs/natural/recreation_permit.htm (http://www.azland.gov/programs/natural/recreation_permit.htm)

Individual permits are $15 for the year (covers 1 vehicle), and Family permits are $20/year (covers two vehicle in your household).  You can either mail in the application, or bring it down to their office at 1616 W Adams St (in downtown Phoenix).

Hmmm this sounds like it'd be fun! You think a stock height 2wd fronty with just spacers in the front will do ok? I read the trail info but don't wanna hold the trip up because I get stick or something

From my understanding they don't make a LSD for the SV. But something that acts like an LSD from the factory

In dry conditions, you shouldn't have a problem.  There is only one short, optional obstacle that has a bypass.  This is a really easy, but very scenic trail.  In wet conditions, 4x4 becomes a necessity.

This is shaping up to be a good run!  I have posted this on TitanTalk as well (in the southwest forum).  Here is a pic from the last time we made this run back in 2010.  We had 4 or 5 Titans with us that day:

A little bit of rain shouldn't discourage any 2WD guys from going honestly, that trail isn't that difficult until you get to the actual bridge.

Yea the front noise was my bump stops fell out and my rear was the front leaf bushing was completely gone. I took it apart today and made some out of urethane since I can't buy new leafs right now but it should be much better now.
