Sandy Beach Anyone?

I'm heading out to the mysterious Sandy Beach in the Four Peaks area. I think we may be guaranteeing carnage. If anyone wants to go just let me know. I don't have details but it should be fun!

I heard it is still rough, no bees on the last trip out (word of mouth), and the beach is under water.

Is the water level that high? I know I have been out there on a boat and the water will rise 1-2 feet in 30 minutes.

If I had a boat I would meet you there.

...and as a warning; recently the sheriff has given *warning* tickets to those who have accessed Sandy Beach via the wash. Apparently it crosses through designated wilderness area, which is always off limits to vehicles. Check your tonto national forest maps to confirm...I wouldnt be surprised if the FS has put up closed signs at the wilderness boundary to warn those. Just a heads up...

have fun!

Exclamation

From the AZVJC Board-

Sandy Beach trail Posted Closed

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

"We (me & the wife, Kevin & Kelly H)were out last Sunday to run the Coves in from 4 Peaks, and were going to run down the Sandy Beach trail to the gnarly section to check out just how nasty it really is, but...

Right where the Sandy Beach trail starts is a nice shiny stake with a Forest Service "Trail Closed to Motorized Traffic" sign with a fair number of tire tracks going past it (maybe people just can't read)"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Also did some research, and this trail DOES go into the Four Peaks Wilderness Area, making it illegal to drive in any type of vehicle or bicycle.

So Much for That Idea

Well, I guess no Sandy Beach. Nice research Ryan! I'm kinda happy anyway. I was in no hurry to break something on my truck again since it's going to be up and running tonight and that only gave me 36 hours of quality time before the carnage began.

Maybe we'll run something out in FJ or up in Sycamore Creek (which probably has a fair bit of water in it today!) Any suggestions?

Ryan-- Stop being such a pansie and wheel your truck! I don't care if you wanna get it regeared. We can just have some fun and let Westin do all the real shit! Come on!

Wow, last weekend - I saw no signs - just lots of tire tracks. Didn't even see a post for a missing sign!
