Land Rovers, Lunar Rovers, and Volcanos
Date:
Saturday September 19th, 2020 09:30 AM
Where:
Cinders OHV - Flagstaff, Arizona
Category:
Trail Runs (Official)
Trail Leader:
Kelly Howard

Event Description

Meetup: Safeway at 4910 N Hwy 89 in Flagstaff, AZ.

First up is a visit to a training location for the Apollo Astronauts. This is the only location like this left in the US. Explosives were used to create artificial craters, and they learned to drive the lunar rover and walk in their spacesuits around them. We will continue through the Cinder Hills OHV area on a route that is not the easiest, but hopefully the most scenic. If time allows, we will wind our way around Sunset Crater and end up at Strawberry Crater to finish off the day. You are welcome to join us camping afterwards.

This is a Moderate Trail.

Bring recovery gear if you have it. The cinders are like coarse sand, and someone might get stuck, allowing us to practice our recovery skills.

Venue Description

The Cinder Hills is a scenic recreation area enjoyed by many off-highway vehicle enthusiasts. Its numerous volcanic cinder cones and craters surrounded by a ponderosa pine forest environment gives the area its unique value. Due to a growing interest in this area for off-highway vehicle recreation, additional management direction is needed to protect sensitive resources and to provide for continuing use of this recreation.

Approximately 13,500 acres in the Cinder Hills has been designated for off-highway vehicle recreation. Management emphasis is for the use of 2-, 3-, and 4-wheel vehicles.

On site camping is available in dispersed areas of the recreation area, or in the nearby Bonito Campground outside of Sunset Crater Park.
