FR235 to Billy Lawrence Trailhead

Post by Kkessler » Sun Jun 30, 2019 12:01 pm

Hello, I’m wondering if anyone has run FR235 up to Billy Lawrence Trailhead lately. The most recent condition report I can find is June 2017 and at that time it was closed at Cienega spring due to erosion. The report said repairs appeared to be active and a culvert was to be placed. We’re planning to camp up near the Billy Lawrence Trailhead this weekend if the road is open.

Thanks,
Keith

TRAL's last recorded inspection of FR235 was 6/24/17. There aren't any issues noted, including any erosion problem. Where did you find the condition report? Link?

Hi Ben, thanks for the reply! The report is dated 6/3/17 and from hike Arizona. I realize it’s neither an official source nor a 4WD site so I do take it with a grain of salt :)

Note ** For anyone planning on driving FR 145 to the Billy Lawrence TH in the near future.
This road is currently closed just past The Cienega Spring TH. The road is dug up and blocked off while they fix the Spring source that has eroded the road. As of 6/3/2017, there had been recent activity with the repair.

I’m headed out there on Wednesday night and will let you know. Also looking forward to the July meeting and new volunteer orientation!

Thanks for all you do!
Keith
