Start in Jerome, go to Perkinsville then make our way into the mountains? Or start at lake pleasant and dirt drive that whole stretch.

Like this?

 Something like that, I think the turn was before Perkinsville but what ever works. The end goal is the same.

Lol. Perkinsville. I know that road...





...from at least Chino Valley through the skinny, metal bridge.

I can do this. Will likely be bringing a couple [ very exceedingly cool ] TJ owners.

Will be looking to spend quite a bit of time at OXW on Saturday, though.

We'll post up a map of where we'll be. it's easy to get to, further back than most go and like shovel says, lots of places to camp all around and in the same area we're in.

Hi please post gps coordinates or map of the area.
Thanks

We can start from Woodchute and run Smiley Rock downhill,  then take 318A East to 318.    318 through Perkinsville is sedan-accessible but scenic.    Smiley Rock is rugged.   FR354 up the mountain is between those two things in difficulty,  subaru friendly some days and an all day mud chucker others.  There are some pretty detours like there's a very challenging optional route upstream from Sycamore Falls and that itself is a fun hike if we get there early enough to take it in.   

I'm open to other routes, that was just the first one that made sense when I was looking for a scenic route.

We're planning on being there! We'll be walking the show for a day or two, we'll see how quickly we can plow through it. But def camping.

see if that works

wow. It never feels like a 50 minute drive. I guess because it's so pretty up there... Wonder if we need to provide from trail leads to help folks find it...

Is anyone set on doing an off road pilgrimage on this or are we just finding our own way?

My plan is to just head up to camp late Friday night. I have to be at work Friday otherwise I would be in for a journey to camp.

My time is a bit dumb too I might not know when I can go until right before I leave.     So I'm out for convoy planning - see y'all up there!!

Not sure if anyone will be rolling in from the expo, but, should be plenty of us heading to camp Friday afternoon or evening that you could meet up with.

Campfire restrictions are almost a given this year, and if conditions don't improve, I wouldn't rule out a forest closure. Stay tuned to Coconino National Forest news and updates for impending doom and gloom. There's already a whopper of a fire in another sector north of Payson. Just be aware it "may" not be as "free-wheeling" as years past.
