McCain Loop is one of the reasons I moved to Tucson in 1990 (from Santa Monica, CA). I camped on the Loop in '86, and realized the Sonoran Desert is one of the most unique places in the world.

I rode through the Loop a few weeks ago, and it has certainly changed. The big, "unimproved" dirt camping areas have been "improved," and lot sizes are quite a bit smaller. It's still a cool spot to cruise through, though. It would be cooler to stay a few nights there and just enjoy the silence and sounds of the desert.

Thinking about it, this might be a nice spot for local riders to use as a base camp for a night or two. The riding surrounding the place is outstanding for ADV bikes.

Ok, I'm rambling on....
