Horsethief Flat

April 22nd 2017

Description

Meet at Cactus Flat Road and Highway 18 at 9 am.  We'll head down Horsethief Flat to the Flat. We'll stop at the botttom for lunch, and we'll explore some of the spur roads.  If we finish the trail quickly depending on size of the group, and folks want to wheel some more, we'll head up Jacoby Canyon to Holcomb Valley and beyond. Trail conditions on Horsethief are unknown at this time but it may be rough due to the heavy winter we just had. 

Guests please contact me at explorewestusa@gmail.com before showing up to the trek.
