    RR: Salty-Gila Tour '14 (X-Post from AZ)

    Finally got around to finishing up a trip report from a 3-day bikepacking loop from home. Such a fantastic route, can't wait to do it again next year.

    I put it together in three parts due to length. Tons of pics!!

    Day 1: Urban Trail Connectors

    Day 2: Oasis in Gila Country

    Day 3: GPS Woes & Dirt Roads

    201.4 miles & 13k of climbing.

    Nice job, John! I'd still like to check this route out with you sometime, especially if it could be timed to camp at A-52. Keep me in the loop for any future runnings.

    Will do Evan. I think next year I may do it in late Feb or early March for slightly cooler temps. Plus, I'd like to make it a 4-day ride and add in Montana Mtn. That would give the route more AZT, running from the Wilderness boundary at Rogers Trough & an elevation of 5400' all the way down to Kelvin. I'd make Area 52 the camping spot for the 3rd night out.
