Also I've been shooting at Rail X many times, often with big groups and no attempt to be stealthy about it. We've never had any problems, so I don't know if it's legal now, or no one cares, or we've just gotten lucky.....

I haven't explored any of the Sahuarita area, but it sounds like I should.

And I wheel with Wildcat Off Road, the club at the U of A (although you don't have to be a student or alumni there; I'm neither). We mostly run Reddington unless it's a big overnight trip, either Chiva Falls/Pools or Chimney Rock. We have a night trip planned for Thursday to Reddington, look us up on Facebook or our website if you wanna join a run sometime
What's the website?

The Facebook page is used more frequently these days, but the website is www.azwildcatoffroad.net.

Get the book: "Az Guide to Backroads and 4x4 trails" by Charles Wells. fyi Helvetia is also known as Gunsight Pass. See it before its gone. Lots of local action on JKOwners.com "tucson hang out" thread in the sw section and it aint all jks, mostly rock crawlers tho......also check out expedition portal.com and azvjc....

Is Chimney a pretty good run? How difficult is it? I would like to get up there. I have done Chiva which is close I think.

Chimney is kind of as easy or difficult as you want it to be. I've been up there with a stock Liberty, so it's easy to get to and poke around, but if you want to do harder stuff there's a lot of options. I'm going up to Reddington (not sure if Chiva or Chimney) with a group Sat night, hopefully there's still decent water running. Meeting at 7 pm at the circle K on Tanque Verde.

agreed, easy to get to from the west side, as hard or as easy as you like once there. Longer moderate run out/in the back/east way with more challenging stuff on the Romero Spring option. Unlike much of az the rock here is not just a pile of boulders. Plenty of bedrock, humpbacks, fins, rounded shelfs ect. some call it mini moab. you'll be dissappointed if looking for redrock but a great play area none the less. Think of it as the minnie golf of wheeling. Lots of obstacles in a small space.

I'd like to join you guys saturday but the Tucson JKF crew is headed to Ruby Bat Cave and some little known easy but remote borderland routes.

Hm must get incontact with the jkers down here. One of the groups is mostly gone for the summer (students) and its monsoon season. Another reason to go get dirty.

Want to try and get a run together for next Saturday night or Sunday. I'm still stock ZJ so nothing difficult. Let's get something going!
