Crown King, AZ
Because it is still pretty hot in the desert I selected Crown King, up in the cool pines. This route will stage at the regular place, almost at the end of the pavement, along Castle Hot Springs Road (33.90419, -112.32587). We will meet at 8:15 am for a safety meeting, leave by 8:30 am. We will drive on the Castle Hot Springs road through the Resort and turn north at the Buckhorn turnoff up Castle Hot Springs Creek through Walker Gulch north to County Road 60 (which I think is the Senator Hwy) and into Crown King for lunch. Our return trip will be down the “Backway” from Crown King back to our staging area. Total distance is approximately 65 miles. Our return will be over a very rough trail, which is the “backway” from Crown King. Let me know if you have any questions.
