My wife and I went up Jerome on sat . we stayed at the ghost city inn.great bed n breakfast.I was told that i might want to start my trip farther down the trail,so I went back down to clarkdale and turned at the mavrick gas . that is mingus road . its a pretty easy drive to the trail, and the trail has a few rough spots .nothing to bad Im new to off roading but i think it moderate is a good way to rate it.good views we ended the trip in cherry .one of them blips on the map cool spot. little grave yard and fire hse
i had no idea what to do when I got just past the ruins of the old mine. There is an area that goes up and and an area that goes down. Both were out of my skill range alone and without a winch. I would have liked to have continued but could not safely pass.
I was driving a 4x titan 4dr and according to the map, it was just after the area where it specifies (low range will be necessary). I was able to get up in 2X, but beyond that it was over my head sadly. Although I did enjoy two other trails that day.
Mingus is not suitable for stock trucks at the current state of the trail.
