Forest Road 143 over Four Peaks on Sunday, March 10th
Anyone interested in getting some dirt on the wheels on Forest Road 143 at Four Peaks?
It was mentioned in another thread this is an "easy" trail and will my first time out since getting my JKUR this past week. I live near Cactus and the 101 in Scottsdale and want to get on the road sometime around Noon.
Joel, the Four Peaks ride is a lot of fun and very easy. Just make sure you follow RT 143... I missed a turn a few miles in and wasted a 30 minute coming back.
You should come back by the Apache Trail, another fun and easy run. The whole trip is around 85 miles and will take you all day, so I would leave around 9:00 to get in all the sun light you can... Lots of great views and places for lunch....Have fun and Drive Safe....
I did the 143 forest road and back through apache trail drive about a month ago when there was snow on four peaks, awesome drive. Going from snow on four peaks to dry and slightly warmer through apache trail is a nice change. I live in AJ, so its a quick trip for me.
How about outside of a Starbucks in Fountain Hills? There are a couple of gas stations in this area for anyone that needs to top off. I should be there by 12:15 pm, assuming I get out of church tomorrow morning at a decent time. I'll be parked a bit out from the Starbucks in my white JKUR.
I think this location would work well for anyone coming up from the Mesa area on Highway 67. The address of the Starbucks is 16815 East Shea Boulevard Fountain Hills, AZ. Their number is 480-837-1486. I called and confirmed this location is in the same shopping center as Target, but not inside the Target.
I'll send my contact info via PM to those that express an interest in this.
