Toroweap re-loaded for 2017
Possible date May 6th, 7th, and 8th (Saturday, Sunday, Monday)
We will ride all dirt (well 99% dirt) from Las Vegas to Toroweap. Las Vegas to Mesquite is 80-90 miles, gas, then Mesquite to Toroweap is 120-130 miles. We will meet early at the Petro station, I-15 and Speedway Blvd...kick stands up at 0800. We will ride out through Apex, old Spanish trial to logandale trail system (if riders are interested we could take Bitter springs 4x4 scenic road as a change up over last year), Whipple road through Moapa Valley to "Pole line" road then to 170/Bunkerville. Those needing gas at this point can fuel up in Mesquite. Big bikes are welcome to joint us at this point (I willing to put together a mostly dirt big bike ride but it will be intense...I'll ride my GS1200). We will take 242/Lime Kiln Canyon road up through the mountains eventually leading to 5 then to 115 to Toroweap. There is one tricky section early on Lime Kiln Canyon road, for big bikes, then it's well maintained BLM roads to Toroweap.
This will be a three day/two night ride. I'll have a support vehicle or two meeting us at Toroweap which can transport camping gear, gas, food, etc. One day out, one day of exploring (Change up from last year: Ride dirt to Kaibab then to Coral Pink Sand Dune park, take more dirt roads up to Zion NP, pavement to Springdale for lunch/dinner, then we will take dirt roads the long way back to Toroweap...210miles), one day back home.
I will reserve the same site as last year.
