Mazourka Peak & Papoose Flats



http://www.adventureduo.com/2012/06/...ose-flats.html

Another great trip in the record books. This time we ran into a little bit of trouble and had to winch ourselves out twice in one day. It was all part of the adventure!

Enjoy & thanks for reading!

Great spot! Been up there a lot. In fact it is the first place I went when I got my Sporty in 2007. Check out Santa Rita Flat, too. The road continues to Harkless Flat and on to the Death Valley road, but not sure there's enough clearance around some trees along the road. I did it a few times in my Land Rover.

Great report!

We did the same route as you last fall. Its on my definite to do over list. This time I want to explore the narrows to the east of Papoose flat. The views from up there are fantastic.

Great trip report Dave and Yoshi! It really makes me want to go back.

Not an attempt to hi-jack, just an endorsement. I did this a couple years ago and it is every bit as stunning as described.

Re: Mazourka Peak & Papoose Flats

Great report and pics as usual, thanks for taking the time to prepare.

Just curious if your winching incidents were the result of leaving the "main road" for a spur trail, or because you were towing a trailer?

I'd like to head up there in the SMB and just want to know if this is an area where I'm prone to get stuck or have issues even while on the main roads.

Jeffrey, I'd like to get a pic like that of my rig........

Thanks
R
