Intermediate Overnighter: Tombstone Hustle
April 23 @ 9:00 am – April 24 @ 4:00 pm
We’re riding the Tombstone Hustle!
We’ll be meeting up in Tombstone and headed clockwise on the loop. This is not a good trip for beginners as it involves some rugged terrain and carrying water for the overnight.
The first day will be the shorter but tougher one as we’ll be headed up and over the Dragoon’s for a long 3 mile trail section. This 3 mile section is half up and half down and mostly hike-a-bike for all but the most technically skilled mountain bikers. After about 30 miles on the day, we’ll be camping out in the Cochise Stronghold camping areas.
Its possible that there will be creeks that water can be filtered from on the first day of riding, but don’t count on it.
The following day will be a flatter more mellow 40 mile cruise back around to Tombstone. We’ll be passing some stores for resupply.
We recommend mountain bikes for this route primarily for the challenging first day. If you’re comfortable riding a gravel bike over rougher terrain that could be a reasonable choice for you as well.
Given the intermediate challenges of the ride, we’ll get in touch with all riders to make sure that you understand what you’re getting yourself into…
