Brian and I went back to the area North of Arivaca road on
Friday. With Phil’s knowledge of that area and his maps a
couple of days earlier, we laid out a GS able route to
explore. From the cow palace to where we exited on 286 it was
37 miles, 34 of which was dirt. Awesome riding.
The option that we did Friday took us north to the RV park and
had some nice technical sections and a bit of deep sand in
spots. Brian was able to do it on tourances, but it is about as
much as you would wan to do (by choice) without knobbies.
have GPS files (.gdb for garmin mapquest users) for both routes
down there. The Amado – Ryan route is easier than Amado RV park
Owlgas route is from I-10 Marana on the north side of
Tortillitas to Oracle Junction
Other routes are around Silverbell mine. Silverbell-Kitt peak is
NOT recommended for GS’s. VERY deep sand if you recall!
There are a bunch of waypoints on this file for the roads NE of
Roosevelt Lake that are on the docket for exploring this winter.
