  • AZFSJC April 2007 Trail Ride -- Box Canyon / Martinez Cabin

    Date: April 14, 2007

    Time: Meeting at 8:15am, Leaving at 8:30am

    Meeting Place: Chevron station on the west side of hwy79 just across
    from Big O Tires on the north end of Florence.

    Trail Rating: 3.0

    We'll be running the Box Canyon trail from the Price road entrance. Along the way we'll take the side trip to Martinez Cabin, then get back on the BC trail. We'll finish up on the Mineral Mountain Rd out to Highway 60.

    Although taller than stock tires are recommended on a Wagoneer for this trail, it can be done bone stock. In dry weather 4-low, good spotting and a lot of patience can get you by. There really isn't anything scary on this trail. It's extremely scenic!

    Bring your family, lunch, lotsa' water and plan to spend the day with fellow full size Jeep enthusiasts. Oh and don't forget your camera! The desert will likely be in bloom.

    Excellent. Count me in.

    The very last part of the trail to Martinez Cabin has gotten pretty ruff. I wouldn't try it in a stock rig but I did manage to do it with a 4" lift and 31" tires (to the amazement of the baby jeeps that were following me).

    Don't let this stop anyone from coming. There is a good safe spot to park your rig and you can either hitch a ride for the last few hundred yards or take a nice walk to the cabin.

        Nope, this is a day trip. Barring serious breakdown, we can run the trail, enjoy the scenery and take a few breaks along the way and still be to Hwy 60 by 4pm. Knock on wood!

            Ok good.
            I'll have to see what happens in NM the weekend before, that will be a 3 day trip for me, so...

            Can you get me a map point where we come out on HWY 60 so I can estimate drive time back?

                  Tentative.
                  Sometime in April I'm going to the happiest place on earth. I'll check the dates.

                  Ditto on the last part of Martinez, in the creek just after the big trees. It is rough. Stock probably won't make it without damage. Good news is you can easily get to the wind caves after the cabins, and up to the old mill isn't that bad either. Lots of water through there last year.

                  Don't forget the permits if you go out to 60. Unless we are all related, then we can go on one.

                    Count my wife Kristen and I in. My brother and my cousin David will be making the trip out here too to try out his newly 4.10-1 geared true-trac'ed J-10.

                    For anyone that is interested, we will be camping somewhere out there. My friend Chad will be with us too. Since Nick and David are coming out from Cali, we want to make it an overnight trip, not just a day trip. Anyone that wants to stay and camp overnight is more than welcome. The more the better.

                    See you next month.
                    Kevin.

                        It is about 5 miles east of the intersection of Hwy 79 and Hwy 60.

                          Maybe... It sounds like fun. I really should rebuild my transmission and transfer case soon though. Also, we've been talking about taking a sportbike ride up to Prescott around that time... Then again we have been meaning to get out and do more camping.

                            Kevin, I would love to camp. I can be the official 'what time is it' guy. We can listen to some AC/DC, maybe some U2 too. So count me in. Maybe we can camp at the cave by the Cabin or head down near the coke ovens.
