    Ride to the Colorado River near the Grand Canyon

    Who wants to ride here ? I want to do a day trip and check this place out, then maybe plan an overnight camp trip here. Average temps hit 90 in the summer like now. Interesting note that dead north of the camp ground on the other side of the river is where we go to the G. C. every year. Who is not a wussy like some Dodge Mega cab driving guys around here and wants to go? Tim

    I was thinking in about 3 to 4 weeks. Just a Saturday ride, park near Peach springs and then make a quick run up. We could plan an overnight stay after we check it out and find a place to park trucks while we go.

    There’s a nice campground down there, right next to the water - last time I was down there, it was around $35 to camp; and $15 or so to drive down. Permits can be bought at the lodge in Peach Springs.

    And it IS patrolled - ill-tempered Indian in an old Ford Ranger with a hard-on for permit violators.

    Hopefully they’ll allow SxS’s - I didn’t see any down there.

    I go to the Black River on The Apache Rez and they don’t allow SxS on that Rez.

    You guys were right. No UTV, ATV or DIRTBIKES etc even street legal.

    So this is a no go for the UTV ride. Tim
