WHAT
We will be doing a run to Box Canyon Run with all the bells and whistles - stopping at the train tracks for a photo, stopping at the old mail depot, climbing the waterfall, etc..

We will start with Box Canyon from South to North (enter at Price Rd).
We will head out North via Mineral Mountain Mine road

Info about the Trail:
Box Canyon (very easy, but funl) is a signature trail, good trail for beginners and all.

I will have AZFJ Stickers with me as well


WHEN
Saturday, March 16


MEETUP
Depart airdown spot off of Price Road and the 79 at 9:30am.
goo.gl/maps/3tbsYgpxqPw

A fun run for veterans, a fun run for noobs who want to see what their truck can do and use their lights!

This is a very easy trail, only one real Obstacle, and that's the waterfall at he end of Box Canyon, on the way towards the middle of Florence Junction.

I will be spotting anyone who needs it, so don't worry, we will get you up it.
If anyone gets stuck, we will have plenty of snatch straps to get you up too

I was just there last weekend for the first time and got kind of lost. Plus it was just my kids and I and no real gear. I wanted to go back with someone that knows the way so this may be perfect for me. My FJ is stock running boards and all, will I be ok? I went last weekend in my first gen 4runner, may have to think about what truck to bring
