Anyone been out to The Desert Bar outside of Parker?

Found this article today, the bar opens Oct 1.

I want to head out there and want to hit some trails in the area. Anyone know of anything en route to The Desert Bar or around it?

I'd like to visit that place as well. The ghost town of Swansea is not far from there and is also on my list. Scenic run more than serious wheeling.

We'd be up for it! I've been wanting to go since we first learned about it last year. Any dates in mind? My schedule is going to get tighter as the holiday season approaches but hope to join.

Looked up some trails and happenings around Parker. The Parker 4 wheelers have an event called Desert Splash from November 11-13, that is trail runs from easy to hard. Sounds pretty cool. I'd be interested in going to check out that area. Always wanted to attend Hammers out there.
I would be interested in a trip out there, plus there's a bar out there. What's not to like?!?

I have been to the desert bar a few times. It is definitely worth the trip. I usually go in the front way. I have taken the back road, but not to the bar. Swansea is an easy scenic ride and worth the time. There are some fun trails south of Havasu, before Parker as well. I was thinking of going by this coming Sunday, unless my activities manager has other plans. Laughing

Cheers, Steve
