This is one of the best trails in the Sierra Anchas ( especially now that Cherry Creek is partially closed ) but it took some fairly serious damage during the rains last year. Fortunately TRAL has agreed to take a look and try to make some repairs. If anyone is interested in helping they would definitely welcome the assistance. It would be a fun way to see what they do as well ( and get out of the desert heat this weekend ). This won't be 8 hours of back breaking labor, just do what you can. The goal is to get the trail passable all the way up to the mine at the top. Items to bring include electric or gas saws, gloves, shovels, buckets, etc.

We will be meeting here at 9 AM on Saturday 4/29:

Miami Fry's Fuel Center
2115 US 60
Miami, AZ 85539

Some pictures of the trail:

If you plan on coming please post up.

Thanks,

Owen

As the originator of the AZFJ Trail Review thread on the Asbestos Mine I definitely wish them luck in making it passable again.

But, looking at the photos of the damage it looks like a job for heavy equipment. Does anyone know if the TRAL group has the equipment for this?

We won't be bringing in any heavy equipment ( at least not this time ). I think this will be about scoping out the entire trail if possible, cutting downed trees, jack hammering and towing rocks out of the way, and then stacking enough rocks and dirt into the large holes to at least make it passable by a modified 4x4. It might not go back to being a stock friendly trail but hopefully we can get it to where you don't need a rock buggy.

It was a success. I updated the trail review thread.
