    A friend and I are considering going to this claim this up coming weekend (9-16-16).

    We are curious if there is any running water up there.  Any suggestions or tips for the trip?  Sluice/dry washer, travel, etc.   Just curious.

    Thanks

    Mike

    unless local thunder storms start a runoff I would not expect any water on these claims

    All,

    I’m new to GPAA, live in Texas and fly into Phoenix once a month. Every now and then I’m able to get a layover greater than 24hrs and would love to hit some of the local areas. My bag space is limited so its a pan, and maybe a folding shovel for me (along with a rental car). If you’re interested in a third wheel, hit me up and I’ll see if our paths can cross down the road.

    My next trip I’ll be in town on the 6-7th of March.... hit me up

    If you do not get any responses, Lynx Creek Prescott is a good day trip from Phoenix:

    https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/prescott/recarea/?recid=67279

    Its accesible by rental car, or even your own personal vehicle and you will find color with the equipment you mentioned. Its a $5 entry fee for the USFS. There will definetly be others out on the creek. Onl caveat I will say is check the weather. Its at 7k elevation so the temps could mean snow on the ground and ice covereing the water. Makes for a cold day panning. I've done this day trip secveral times myself. Its not a GPAA claim, but it is the area I reccomend for a gold pan. I would not recommend the GPAA claims in Maricopa county with a 2WD rental vehicle.
