Tiptop Arizona

Tiptop Arizona is a mine/ghost town in central Arizona about 25 miles north of Phoenix. Great weather for a Saturday ride.

that's a good ride... on my quad. I doubt my KLR and GSA will make it up to Tiptop Mine. Lots of good riding/ exploring in that area.

Cool

Great work on the video. Do you have a mic in your helmet? Do you have the GPS tracks to be able to email? If you can drewreid8@aol.com

I wouldn't mind running up there on the 950 on day. Cheers

The GSA would be a bear to get up there. But doable. The KLR is a possibility depending on your skill level and tires. For a nice easy day the ATV would be the best.

Did you get a chance to check out the mineshaft? it would be quite a challenge to get to on a bike. The road is maybe 3/4 mile or so long and dead ends at the mineshaft. You would have passed it on the right just before the place you stopped I think. Was up there a month ago on the quad.

I liked the historical photos included into the video as well as the audio info you added. You did make me feel really really old using a 90's rock band for a historical reference.
