Designated or just marked?

Dignated by each supervisor, regional forester, chief of USFS, Secetary of Agriculture or congress?

It is marked off and on all the way to West Yellowstone, so many forests were involved

The Arizona Backcountry Discovery Route Map and DVD are now available for pre-order. Time to get your plan on.

Enjoy the route!

Go AZ should also be stocking those this whole time too, but I'm not 100% sure on that.

The AZBDR map was produced with the AZ Benchmark basemaps so things should also look similar. I would ride the route with both and the GPS loaded.

I have ordered the map and plan on starting 3/9 :-)

Does anybody know if any of the route is too wet or snowy to ride right now?

Up till today, things have been dry. There is a storm tracking thru the middle of the state, but I doubt it will have the juice to impact your plans a week from now. Just watch this storm and what is coming next.

I was leaving yesterday, Friday, to start down south and head north. SoCal is dumping and it's supposed to head east, although not quite the rain amount here. We are hoping to leave again on the 14th to try again, doing a hwy run around Flagstaff in case of snow. Hopefully maps will be here by then.

Anyone welcome to join us.

Thanks for this thread. I ordered my kit today and am told it will ship today. I'd like to try riding the route late March. Does the map and CD come with tracks?

Thanks,
P

Pantah, I plan to ride the section from Globe to Flagstaff (only part really different than GWT) before or after April 5 when I will be in Scottsdale for art Auction.
