Wickenburg to Havasu

We are trying to get a ride together from Wickenburg to Havasu. I am wondering if anyone knows some connections from lake alamo to Swansea to parker or Havasu.. as offroad as possible.

I have done that a few times.

Take Alamo road out of Wenden towards Alamo lake. After you go over the first hill at the bottom follow the power lines that run West towards Parker.

After you cross a very sandy plain, climb a small hill and you will find a road sign talking about desert racing at parker, turn right and you will run into Shea Rd. (it's paved). Turn left and it will take you into Parker.

Dirt road under power lines(it will criss cross under the power lines along the way)






Road Sign

Too bad some of the pictures are no longer hosted in the right places, if you need more help let me know. I found all the routes by zooming google earth in close and following the unpaved routes that you can see in satellite images.

Could meet you guys at Tres Alamo & the 93. Have ridden into Parker from there many times but Havasu is your destination so would have to slab north. Looks to me where Swansea splits & Swansea mine road heads south west if you head north on Swansea/Planet Ranch you will hit Mineral Hill/Mineral Wash Rd, take that north to Planet Ranch Rd & west into Havasu?

Weather looking a little iffy for the 8th & 9th. A little rain great for dust but more not so good for riding/camping. We need it so I won't wish it away

To Parker, that's one option...~94 miles one way.

To Havasu ~120 miles one way,

It looks like a nice ride in the wash do hwy 95 (Lake Havasu) from Dutch Flat rd. (balloon D).

I know these guys. Corky, Tom Schell & Wedged by a different name & the guy on the KLR I can't remember. Corky hangin in there & the others I have lost track of. Great to see agqain. This could be the ride they submerged their bikes on a water crossing & all came to my house & we did some oil changes. Read the second RR & this was them. This is AZ Tom that used to be WR Tom. Good to see your still riding.

Forecast for next weekend is a little better today, shows the front passing on Thu/Fri, might just luck out.
