While its a pretty trip. It won't hook up to the road to alta directly, the hookup is through Elephant Head and turn up the road to the Smithsonian. The road from there is the Bull Springs Road. Madera Canyon is pretty and peacfull and all but not much for jeeping. But Gunsight is close as is Bull springs. If you take Bull Springs. You will entually get to a tee in the road. Right goes to Patagonia and Alta, Left will take you to the area over the hill from Madera and almost as nice. Also old mining areas to check out....

I know about the water falls, me and my old lady are going to renew our vows there at some point. I'm just looking for a relaxing weekend for my bday, things have been so hectic and stressful lately. I want to plan on heading up the 2nd and come back the 3rd. Unless I get giddy and head up on friday night, which is 50/50 at this point. I still have the finish the cylinder head on my wifes car so I will see how it goes.

We hauled our cookies all the way to Madera Canyon to get away for the weekend and the camp grounds were full. What a bummer.

There are great places up behind Patagonia also. A little longer drive but more open areas.
And more open mostly cool area in the bull springs area..

Patagonia might be strange to you, but the mountains around it are cool..

Yeah it would be nice if it wasn't such a modernized party spot. I don't want showers and car ports when I go camping.
