At that time it was not much more than a deserted dirt road . My wife and I are planning cross country trip July/Aug/Sept and are thinking of driving the trail as a kind of memorial visit . This time we're in a Ford 150 SCREW pulling a 26 Ft Winnebago TT , riding shotgun will be three Yorkies . Anyone with any current info on the Trail ? ie ; Is it advisable to do the trail with a TT ? , Is it still a dirt road ? etc., etc .Your input would be very helpful .
Pay particular attention to the section of "Fish Creek Hill" & "Helpful hints". Both those sections say its not a good idea to take an RV on that section.
Since you're towing, you might be able to drop your TT off in a parking lot, (with permission of course) and make a day trip of that section in your tow vehicle alone.
I spent many summers in the SW when I was a kid and have "tent" camped on the Apache Trail back in the 1970's. Somewhere I even have a small bottle filled with the "Apache Tears".
Have a great trip.
