Meet at 8:00 am (depart at 8:15) at the Holiday Inn east side parking area, just south of US 60 on Country Club Dr in Mesa.

This is a casual 4X4 run from the Salt River to Apache Junction (north to south) through very scenic desert with wonderful views of the Superstition Mountains and Weavers Needle. Afterwards we will regroup at Dirtwater Springs for some lunch and libations. Children and well behaved dogs welcome. Bring water, snacks, and money for carpool.

We will need SUVs or pickups with off road ground clearance. If you are not sure if your vehicle qualifies, please call one of us beforehand.

Each driver will need a permit that is free and valid for 6 months. It takes around two minutes to apply online. Larry applied and received his permit in 4 days. Gates to the area are locked and access combinations are listed on the free six-month permits. To request a permit by email go to www.fs.usda.gov/tonto, click Passes and Permits, and then click Other Permits. Please call or email Lynn, Don or Larry if you have questions.

This event will be canceled if there is inclement weather in the forecast. Cost to non-members is $5.
