toward the far east end by the bank. There is a bathroom In Albertsonís and
coffee & donuts are available as well.
Departure time is 9:00 AM
will head west on Carefree Hwy
DO NOT SPEED IN THE VICINITY OF
police have "bracelets" that fit the wrists of speeders. We will stop at
McDonalds in Wickenburg for 15 minutes for a comfort break.
After departing Wickenburg, we will follow Hwy 89
north to Yarnell and Prescott. About 5 miles out of Wickenburg there is a
fork in the road, hwy 89 bends slightly to the right so follow it.
Do not take Hwy 93 at the
fork, 93 will take you to Kingman, you donít want to go there
The balance of the drive is pretty straight
forward and a
beautiful drive through the National Forest with many twists and dips.
we arrive at the outskirts of Prescott
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. 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. About 1/2
mile from the hwy 69 turn off, there is a Circle K gas station on Gurley St.
on your right. We will stop there for 15 minutes for a comfort break and
fuel if you want it. When departing the Circle K get to the left hand lans
ASAP because in 1/2 mile or less you will be following 89 north, hwy 69 goes
to the right and will take you back to Int 17 and Phoenix, you don't want to
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
~~~~~~ you don't want to go there either :-)
Hwy 89A will take us up Mt Mingus to the
former ghost town of Jerome but on
weekends is it anything but a ghost town and it is almost impossible to find
a parking place
we will not be stopping in Jerome. Due to
traffic, we may get separated as we approach Jerome
on the down side after leaving so we will stop and get the group together at
the bottom of the hill on the downside. 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, get the group together 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 to Cornville Road and the restaurant is about 4.5 miles on the
right side of the hwy. The Manzanita Restaurant, we have eaten there on a
few previous occasions, the food is very good and modestly priced.
Please have a full fuel
tank when starting the trip and remember to bring your club radio, this tour
guide and your club name badge.
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.
Please bring a copy of this guide along with you
and an Arizona state map along with your club frs radio.
We hope to have a big
turnout for this tour, the route through Prescott National Forest and up the
mountain to Jerome was custom made for our
nimble sports cars.
