We will be joining the Embry Riddle University’s students on an off-road run to Sheep’s Bridge down Bloody Basin road. They are trying to create interest in starting an off-road group and would like our help. The goal is to get the students out and active while enjoying the surrounding Quad Cities areas.
Meet-up is at 9:00am at the Embry Riddle North entrance in the overflow parking area.
Great SUV trip to ruins, petroglyphs and suspended foot bridge.
Much of this long trip passes through Agua Fria National Monument. Take time for side trips to see archaeological sites and petroglyphs shown on map. The highest point of the trip nears 5,000 feet, where you’ll enjoy expansive views on a clear day. Unlicensed vehicles are allowed throughout the area. There are natural hot springs hidden in thick brush below and slightly north of the bridge on the west side.
The trail is rated Easy:
A well-maintained road that gets a bit rockier as you descend to the bridge. Wet weather creates muddy conditions, especially on side trips.
**This is an all day trip so bring a lunch!**
