Meet at the Queen Creek Cafe at 8:30 for those wanting breakfast and 9:30 for those that need more sleep time. Head to the Dam via Florence Kelvin Highway to Winkleman then up AZ 77 to Globe.

We will then make a stop in the old town of San Carlos.

On the way back we can add a trip up Pinal Peak time permitting and take the 60 back to town. Maybe stop in Superior for some Mexican food.

This will be the last ride I post for a while as I will be heading to Spain for a couple of weeks of riding.

For anyone that would like to go please feel free to join us.

Bill

Just bumping this up for anyone this is intrested in joing us.

I don't know which way you guys are headed but I've always wanted to try this road out to Coolidge Dam.

Looks like fun.

You guys enjoy the ride.

Julio,

I was looking at that myself. Do you know if you need any special permits for the reservation and have you any information on how difficult it is?

Thanks
Bill

If you stay on marked roads there's no permits needed unless you're camping.

I have no idea how difficult that route is but give it a shot and let us know.

if it gets too snotty you could always back track and head towards Globe.

This would make a nice day's loop.

hmm...according to this you do need a permit.

You will need a recreation permits for most of the Apache Nations such as the following San Carlos Tribal Government rates: ($10 per day) to camp, picnic, hike, or venture onto back roads unless you have a fishing, hunting, or special-use permit.
The closest one to the route would be the Apache Gold Casino.
I've visited the dam (took Coolidge Dam Rd. all the way) and I didn't have a permit. Maybe I just got lucky.

I road this today and saw the strangest thing. I stopped for a snack right where the dirt meets pavement, on the east end. On the south side of the road, on top of a low saguaro arm, there was a dead coyote pup. I'm guessing a large bird deposited it there maybe. If you guys end up going that way, see if it is still there.

They try and make this harder than it needs to be. Their website is very out of date. Apache Gold does not sell permits anymore. The closest I can find in the Circle K in Globe. $10.00 per person.
