I have been pouring over topo maps for trails and POIs somewhere in a 500 vicinity. Can’t wait until the location gets published.

Dave,
There seem to be a few motorcycle guys coming, and we are also looking at a trail run on Saturday. When you get the info, if possible, I'd like to get copies of teh map to review for the moto guys. (Running bikes and 4wheelers together would most likely be "confusing" so i was focused on a separate run.)

Many thanks,

Tim

Ok all, here is what we scouted out. A nice leisurely run through the Kofa Natl Wildlife Refuge that's rated 3 or 4 max, plus a good chance of pinstripping. We will stage Friday at camp about 12:30pm and depart at 1:00pm. The run will take approximately 3 hours and cover about 45 miles. There are just way to many sites to list on this trail but take our word for it, the views are incredible. It's a great moto route too for that group that was interested. For those that want a more challenging run and if the interest is there, we can head out on another run on Saturday. Can't wait to see you all next week!

I definitely want to check out the Big Eye mine area and the Spiral Laybrinth and possible the Castle Dome museum. . Not sure if they are on your map file I haven’t seen it yet. Nice to know you had advance information on where to scout...

@Greg tacos without pin-striping are more like plain tostadas. Those are great as well. LOL. I seem to add some in each state. Then i get home and scrub them all out and start again.

The spiral laybrinth is very close to this track on Gaia. I can run forward ops there if anyone is interested.

The labyrinth is very close to the exit of the run we will be doing Friday. We can add a stop there if you want! Also, if you continue to the end of Palm Canyon Rd, there's a short hike to the last place in Arizona where native California palm trees grow in their natural habitat. It's pretty cool. So much to see in Kofa!
