Update-You can NOT ride down to the bottom out of Peach Springs without potentially facing a $500 fine.

Don't waste your time here.......such a shame. I went to tribal head quarters/met with the tribal council after being denied entry a couple of months ago. I was told its "Tribal Law" that no two wheeled vehicles are permitted to ride down to the bottom regardless of the bike's worthiness/rider's ability & integrity.

My guess is they're trying to control the local teenagers/hooligans from tearing up the area with quads and bikes so they're making a broad sweep and denying passage to all. Told them the same thing.....they sat there stone faced. Tried to appeal to the loss of easy revenue.....stone faced.....told them I'd get the word out so folks don't divert over to town on bikes for a wasted trip......stone faced.

You CAN drive down in a truck/jeep......which are capable of doing much MORE damage than a bike............such B.S.

Thank you so much for this great reports. Get's me stoked! I'm relatively new to the moto world but I'm really loving it. I live in AZ. and a major goal for getting into adventure riding was to loop the big ditch someday. I have rafted the entire Grand Canyon twice and hiked it quite a bit. But I have always dreamed of looping it on a moto. I recently bought a KTM 500exc and I'm hoping to gear it up for a trip similar to this one towards the end of the summer. Thanks again for the entertaining stories and great details.

Great RR! I have wanted to loop the Grand Canyon for a few years now, and this report has pushed me over the edge. Planning on doing it this year.
Thanks for the report, and the tracks.
