PHX - Sycamore - Post Rain Ride

Inches of rain last week swelled the normally dry washes causing the Tonto National Forest to close access to the area. A call to the Mesa ranger station Friday morning revealed the area was to be reopened for the weekend. A last minute ride was planned!

Yardstick - KTM 530
Slowred - KTM 350
F-Pilot - KTM 350
Jerry K - KTM 300
Tim - KTM 500
Nightstalker - Honda 450X

On the drive to the staging area, I had concerns about our ability to cross Mesquite wash, I've seen it flooded in the past, and it had just rained, A LOT!

Mesquite wash. Oh my! Still waters run deep!



Slowred spied a way across and the clan quickly followed.

The trails were awesome!





Tim from Colorado knows where to go riding in February.

Group shot, Slowred, Tim, F-Pilot, and Jerry K.



Really, some of my favorite trails!

All down hill back to the trucks from here...for some of us.



After this point, F-Pilot took Slowred and Tim the long, hard way back to the trucks. Yardstick led Jerry and me back the short easy way. I was starving!

Fun ride and great ride report as always! Thanks for letting us tag along.
Yardstick definitely knows his way around out there.
Glad to see you didn't catch my dirt nap before that rutted hill climb.
