If your looking for a new area to go off-roading, Check out Mescal Rd. It is only about a 40 minute drive from Tucson! Off exit 297. The road is about 16 miles. The first three is paved and the first eight is suitable for any car. As you head through the dirt road you will see the Rincon Mts that surround the valley. Also for hikers , you can go to Forest Rd 35 if you want to hike Miller trail, I also saw a sign that said Turkey trail. Here are some photos of this area.
This western movie studio had some big Hollywood stars and movies made here! This is called Old Tucson’s sister studio and has been standing for 50 years! It was used for the movie “Tombstone” the gunfight scene. The saloon was used for the movie “The quick and the dead” also “The three amigos” so it has had many many Hollywood actors and actresses!
Well, the road goes on, but I won’t spoil the rest of this trip, you gotta check it out yourself! All that’s missing is water, I see a lot of campfire rocks built in different areas, but I did not see many “No trespassing “ signs, . So just use common sense when going. Have fun!!!!! Crank up the tunes and drive!
