AZSL Marana Closure Update

The area that AZ state land has closed is really quite small. As you enter on McKenzie Ranch Rd it turns into N. Owl Head Rd and Cochise Canyon Tr. To the west is a small wash and to the east is a larger wash. The power line Rd. is the north border down to the fence line road to the south. Everything between the power line road and the fence line road and the first two washes west and east is closed. A big rectangular area is closed. There is a make shift motocross track to the east and a large flat staging area to the west. There are a ton of signs so it won't be hard to figure out what is closed.

Ok fellow Tucson riders, who wants to try the Santa Rita Mountains ride again. Start at the very South end of Wilmont Road. Let me know whether this Saturday or Sunday works better. Giving some advance notice here

Headed to the airport in a few minutes for work. There's a small chance I will be back for the weekend. Will let you know.

I was possibly planning on leaving work around noon and riding in that area Friday afternoon since I work on that side of town. If I don't do that I could meet on Sunday. Would anyone else want to meet on Friday that maybe can't go on the weekend?

I could meet Friday after lunch. I'm very familiar with that area. We could work our way over to Box Canyon then up to Melendez Pass then the "high" road to Gardner/Cave Canyon then back to Greaterville via the "low" road and return through Rosemont. I ride that area 2 or 3 times a week.

Box canyon

Just ran Box Canyon and Rosemont today. Box Canyon has been recently graded. They have graded off the washboard and replaced it with an even coat of loose marbles!!!! I love it when they "help" us like that.

John, did you find these fellas playing "share the road" with you?



A lot of the back roads going high before Greaterville to Gardner Canyon(4113, 4084, 4085, etc.) were also graded recently. Nice day for a ride.

Well my pictures don't seem to be working right now, but I just took a picture of a bright green KLR with a bright green dog carrier on the rack and bright eyed dog sitting in it..

They found out who the guy was, presumably through his bike info. Still think the dude was drunk and didn't want to get a DUI. Hopefully they charge his ass for searching.
