    Mt. Ord Beta needed

    After 35 years of driving between Payson and Mesa, I have an itch to ride Mt. Ord up to the lookout tower. I read a post on here recently about it, but I can't find it. Does anyone know the milage, elevation, or how long it takes to climb it? Is climbing on the northside significantly harder then the south side? Any info would be much appreciated.

    North side is MUCH harder. Even on a dirt bike.

    Today there was a fire on one of those mountains, lots of smoke. Not sure which mountain peak it was and I can't find any news reports.

    Cause its not news just prescribed burns check the tonto site as all prescribed burns are listed prior to the burns themselves.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
    arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body.
