Table Mesa trail/New River trail run on 2/3/18

5 months 3 weeks ago #9927 by cdb
Being from Oregon we have a few questions for Pierre:

1. Do we meet at the New River Campground?
2. If so, how long does it take to get there from New River or Cave Creek or Carefree?
3. When do you expect to be finished and where?

Thanks,

Clark and Donna

Keep tabs on the Event page for the run. The trail leader will usually update the meeting info (place, time, communications, etc) about a week or so prior the run.

I usually run it from East to West, so we will meet in North Scottsdale somewhere or Cave creek proper.. stay tuned.

We usually meet up around 8am, and hit the trail shortly thereafter.. There's a fun rock pile we usualy stop at for lunch and exploring, and we exit on Table Mesa / I-17 usually around 4pm or so. This can vary based on obstacles and size of group.

This is my usual query regarding a trail run I am contemplating: Is a stock 04 Discovery with street tires OK for this trail? The trail description is somewhat conflicting.

"Stock vehicles are ok for this easy to moderate trail"

"Suitable for aggressive stock SUVs with HIGH GROUND CLEARANCE AND GOOD ARTICULATION. SKID PLATES RECOMMENDED"

Thanks,
Rod & Linda

Our apologies, our trail descriptions are sometimes a combination of guide books and user input. Usually inconsistent. As this trail follows a river contour and crosses the river many times, it's difficult to predict what the condition is from month to month. Historically this trail has never been beyond the capability of any stock land rover. That being said, the biggest success factor in arizona with our harsh terrain is good tires. We always caution folks with Street level tires about this risk mostly due to side wall cuts. If you have a spare tire, make sure it's in good condition. It doesn't always happens , but sometimes it does.
