Arizona - Tonto Nat. Forest - Rio Verde Tributary Wash/Canyon

Went for a ~30 mile off road ride today, great weather, lots of sand, and a nice cool river to dip in at the end of the canyon

The pink trail is where I started my ride, I was looking down into the canyon at that point and it looked so nice that I backtracked to drop down in it, best decision of the week!

Where did you start the ride from, and how narrow did it get? Will bigger beasts get through ok?

Here are some maps:
In this one "A" is the closest major cross-street (Dynamite and Pima) "B" is Service Road 205 aka Bartlett Dam road, you'll probably have to zoom in to read anything. "B" is where I exited the wash but it would be the easiest place to enter it on a large bike.

In this map "A" is again Dynamite and Pima but "B" is the Tonto Nat. Forest trailhead, the drop down into the canyon is a little steep, it can be a little hairy and I wouldn't want to do it on anything much bigger than a KLR. This is where I started my off road portion.

Here's another picture to get you motivated!

Posted a few maps for ya. Width was never an issue, people were taking 4-wheelers and ATVs up the same wash no problem.
