Table Mesa East
« on: July 02, 2010, 09:31:13 AM »
Location: Table Mesa exit, E of I-17
Rating: 2.0
Vehicle Requirements: can be done in a stock Xterra. 4x4 recommended

This trail travels East from I-17 at the Table Mesa Rd exit through ranching territory (please close any gates as you pass through them) and ends at FR-24 just north of the Seven Springs Recreation Area. This run makes a perfect day trip with the kids for a beginning wheeler. There are several places to park streamside & picnic for lunch if you desire. Use caution as you cross the streambeds as the rocks can be slippery & offer resistance to traction.

Table Mesa Rd is exit number 236 on I-17.  The East side of Table Mesa (FR-41) requires an Arizona State Trust Land Permit.  In dry weather, this trail is easy for all 4WDs and passable in high clearance 2WDs.  During/after a rainstorm, parts of this trail can be much more difficult, as there are several different stream/river crossing points.

The eastern end of this trail connects in with FR-24 (Cave Creek Rd) at approximately Mile Marker 16.  Take FR-24 North to head to Sheep's Bridge, or take it south to head to 7 Springs Campground then back to civilization through Carefree and then Cave Creek.

This is a long shot, but if there is anyone who can show me the ropes on this trail and is available to run during the afternoons, sometime between 11 AM-4 PM or so, please let me know.

I occasionally have time in the afternoons and would love to do some easy beginner runs with someone more experienced than me.

Would love too, it is a fun trail with some great scenery and a few obstacles, this is the first trail i ran in my wife's x.  All obstacles can be bypassed.  Table Mesa also has alot of trails in a small area ranging from hardcore technical trails to basic dirt roads, that is where i practiced and built my confidence.  I can only forsee one challenge in the fact I work till 5 or 6 most days, weekends I am free however.

Seeing how I don't work anymore I'm free all day everyday. For the most part anyway. Would love to check out that area though once I get my E-locker fixed. Because right now I have no ABS and have been driving cautiously in the rainy weather.

Cool!  I am pretty new to offroading but would love to get out there and start playing some.

Hopefully can find some time to head up there sometime soon.   Anyone can feel free to contact me

Table Mesa East is not passable about 1/2 mile east of the second and final crossing.  There is a huge washout and the old roadbed is gone for a couple of hundred feet.  It appears that maybe some ATVs have pressed on across the river, but I could not see if they re-routed back to the road upstream from the washout.  It was way more than my X could take and I did not want to try it as I did not want to have to call Tweety for a rescue.  Anyone have a backhoe and a weekend?

JD Dirty and I ran this last night, and we stopped at the same exact point.  It did look like some may have tried to drop down into the water (to go around the washed out road), but we didn't tempt fate.  I agree, heavy equipment would be needed to fix the road.

Margie and me met a couple on a small quad on the way out and we gave them my cell in case they got hung up.  They made it all the way to 24 and back out the same way.  The road is passable for some, but a bit more than I want to bite off.

JD texted me last night, and said that the Forest Service has temporarily closed FR41 to vehicle traffic (from the intersection of FR37 all the way to where it meets up to FR24).  I did a Google search this morning, and found this link to the FS closure order:
http://www.fs.usda.gov/alerts/tonto/alerts-notices/?aid=25171

I have attached their .pdf doc that explains the closure order and provides a basic map of the closure.

The closure will remain in effect until the beginning of April.  Sometimes the FS folks attend the cleanups, so if they are at this weekend's TM cleanup, I'll ask them about it.

Just wanted to give an update:  FR41 (Table Mesa Rd EAST of I-17) is open again.  They have graded the road, and it is once again passable all the way to FR24 (Cave Creek Rd).  I took a ride out there with the quad this weekend, and it was fast and smooth.  Definitely passable in 2WD right now.

NOTE:  Road conditions can change with each passing rainstorm.  In wet conditions, this trail gets very slick / muddy and is not advisable for 2WD travel (sometimes not even 4WD).

Thanks for the update.  I always forget I need that permit when I get to the first fence.

Is it possible for someone  to edit the first post in this thread to mention the  Arizona State Trust Land Permit, and maybe add a link to the site to buy them? I know the information is in the second post. Its just nice to read all relevant information in one post.
