Cornville, AZ - 5/4/13
CLUB TOUR FOR SATURDAY MAY 4TH
Our destination is
Cornville, AZ, I made our reservations for approximately 12:30 at
the Manzanita Restaurant.
Here are the details for the subject club tour.
We will meet at 8:45
AM at the Albertson’s market on Carefree Hwy just East of Int 17 on the north
side of Carefree Hwy. We meet toward the far east end by the bank. There is a
bathroom In Albertson’s and coffee & donuts are available as
will head west on Carefree Hwy toward Wickenburg. DO NOT SPEED IN THE
VICINITY OF LAKE PLEASANT The
Peoria police have "bracelets" that fit the wrists of speeders. We
will stop at Burger King in Wickenburg for 15 minutes for a comfort break.
Wickenburg, we will follow Hwy 89 to Yarnell and Prescott.
Do not take Hwy 93 at the fork of 93 and 89, 93 will take you to
Kingman, you don’t want to go there J
trips on this route usually have a promise of cooler weather once we hit the
town of Yarnell. If your top is up and you want to lower it, this is a good
place to do it and we'll stop the caravan to accommodate this. Please keep your
club radio tuned in for instructions or to let us know that you wish to stop.
The balance of the
drive is pretty straight forward until we arrive at the outskirts of Prescott.
There are several possible routes to get from the Courthouse area to hwy 89A to
Jerome. I have selected the easiest one with fewest turns and complications. It
does however, go through the commercial district with traffic lights. We will be
entering the town of Prescott from Hwy 89 which becomes White Spar Rd for a
short distance and then becomes Montezuma Street after a left hand turn. Stay on
Montezuma Street past Goodwin St and Whiskey row, remain on Montezuma past
the Courthouse which will be on your right. Gurley is the next street,
turn right and remain on Gurley St ( also hwy 89 ) for about 1 mile
which will take you to a fork in the road just past the commercial district..
Hwy 69 goes to the right and will take you back to I 17 and Phoenix. Stay
to the left on hwy 89 and in approximately 6 miles you will come to
the intersection of Hwy 89 and 89A. Turn right and follow the signs on 89A to Jerome. DO NOT GO STRAIGHT
ON HWY 89, THAT WILL TAKE YOU TO ASHFORK
We will not
be stopping in Jerome due to the weekend congestion in that town. Due to
traffic, we may get separated as we approach Jerome and also on the down side
after leaving. After passing through Jerome you will still be on alt
89A and at the very bottom of the hill you will come to a stop sign with a gas
station on the right, this is the town of Clarkdale and will be a good place to
refuel and have a comfort break. When leaving the gas station, turn right and
remain on 89A into Cottonwood. 89A becomes Cottonwood Blvd. At the corner of
Cottonwood Blvd (89A) and Main St. turn right and follow Main St (also called
89A) for a short distance and you will come to a fork where hwy 260 goes off to
the right and 89A to the left.
Bear left (89A) Sedona. Take 89A toward Sedona, you will
cross the Verde River, go up a small hill and there will be a traffic light at
that intersection. We’ will turn right at that signal on the Cornville Road
and the restaurant is about 4.5 miles on the right side of the hwy.
a full fuel tank when starting the trip and remember to bring your club radio.
We do need your RSVP so we will have an accurate count for the restaurant. I
have to provide this to them ahead of time so please, let's hear from you.
There are a
few different choices for the return route and that can be decided during or
after lunch, not everyone will select the same route home.
We look forward to a great turnout for this tour.
Please send me your RSVP so I will have a head count for the restaurant.
Please bring a copy of this guide along with you and an Arizona state map along
with your club frs radio.
