It is a combo dirt + street ride. First to Wickenburg, through Vulture Mine Road, then 22 miles off pavement through Belmont Mountain. "Guide to Arizona Backroads & 4-Wheel Drive Trails" describes it this way: "Easy. Sandy washes and mild desert climbs. Steep and rocky just before Belmont Mine."
I have done it several times and had no problem.
Meet up at Chevron on I-17 and Carefree Highway at 9 am. Bring water and a snack. Allow 2 to 3 hours for the trail and several more hours to get there and return.
AZ Beemer Club Member "clairedelune" is leading us on an offroad trek through the Belmont Mountians on this Saturday, March 3. She's an accomplished offroad rider!
This dirt road ride is so damn easy that probably even dcarver, yamafitter and rushes could even ride it; maybe!
