Gold Rush weekend in Wickenburg started today... Most of us native Wickenburg people attempt to get-out-of-town before the throng of outsiders move in. . This would easily be considered a Big Bike Friendly route. But it does have some precarious switchbacks, steep climbs and if that kind of thing bothers you "NO GUARDRAILS". Steep drop-off's keep you on your toes in a few places. Rode directly to the top... or a close as you can now get. A gate has been erected so the final 500 vertical feet, 1/4 mile of road, is blocked off. This little sign tell you that you hare here! Strange sign? Or so I thought... Steep... Yes and the camera flattens things! This is about as far as you can go. The gate is just ahead. Took a break here... If you really look hard you can see Alamo Lake right between the two poles. Heading back down... even the down appears to be going up? Made it down and decided to look around at the mining stuff in the area. Smith Peak is just to the left of center between these two building corners. It appears that this was once a three room house. It's been a while... Back at the trailer... 48 miles however I did some extra running around. I had parked by "Robson's Mining Worlds" gate on highway 71.
