This is an easy ride and I'd recommend it to anyone who's in the area.

I took a ride down the backside of Mt. Lemmon in the 1970s, there were a few very gnarly boulder sections that I would not have been able to go up without 4wd. The road passed an old copper mine with some large buildings. Is this the same road?

It's the same road but is pretty smooth all the way up now. I think you could probably do it in a Honda Civic.

Cool, I lived on the mountain above Summerhaven for a few years in the early 1970s. Some friends lost homes in the fire awhile back. Looks like the forest is taking it's time recovering...
