Directions to the Trailhead:
Take I-10 east out of Tucson to exit 281, the Sonoita Highway / State Highway 83 exit. Heading south on 83, 11.5 miles from I-10, look for a picnic table/rest area on the right side of the road, turn right down the dirt road just after it, signed for Rosemont Junction (FR 231). 1.41 miles in, a cairned singletrack crosses the road. This is the start/finish for racing. A GPS is recommended for a pre-riding and during the event. Parking lot is on the left of the road, 1 mile from the highway, just before the singletrack. We will have a 1/2 mile ride from the parking lot to the singletrack.
Camping Friday and Saturday Night:
About 1 mile from said turn onto Rosemont Junction Road, there is a OHV area to camp. A few hundred yards pass this area, there is a huge lot on the left with a corral and some parking on the right side. Choose any of those spots.
