    Anyone use Fr27 andc nf-626 (Mt Ord) to bypass beeline backup?

    Southbound Beeline goes to one lane. I got caught up in a backup on Sunday evening. Looking at google maps it appears you could take Fr21 to NF626 to bypass the construction (and get a little scenic trip in at the same time).
    Anyone try this? NF626 is in my non-wells Arizona back country trails book. It says it's easy. What little info I can find on FR21 indicates it is an easy trail as well.

    I've heard people refer to FR 27 as the "hard" way to Mt. Ord. But as far as I know, it's just an actual trail as opposed to a graded dirt road.

    That's kind of what I saw poking around the web.

    I've done this trail a couple times now. Last time was last month. FR27 isn't anything too difficult. Pretty narrow at parts, makes it tough to avoid pinstripes if you're worried about that. Nothing too rough. Couple washed out areas that make it a little fun.

    Cool! Thanks for the info. If it's later on a Sunday do you think it would make sense to bypass the construction and take these trails around it?. One time I was caught in it for over an hour.

    The turn off, going south, looks like it is a few miles before the construction. It might be a while in traffic before you get to the point where there is the turn off for FR27. If I am stuck in traffic I would watch how fast you get through a mile. THen make your decision. It looks like you can cross the highway (left turn) just after MM 229 but this might not be legal. You will double back about 1000 feet to get to the FR27 turn off.

    Not sure if it would save you any time, but the view would be better. Ha. I've never gone straight thru so I'm not sure on timing. I always drive up NF626 to hike up to the lookout, then take FR27 back down. You do have to get out and open/close a gate at the bottom of FR27. Some of FR27 is a little slow going just because it can be rough and narrow.

    Yeah, maybe I will take a run up there in the next couple of weeks just to see how fast I can get through.

    By the time you get to the cutoff for FR 27 going south, you are only a mile or so from the construction. The big backup is all prior to the turnoff. There is no way it would be quicker. I have hit that construction traffic every weekend coming home from my Cabin.

    Thanks Keith, take a look and see how easy it is to cross. Perhaps when the construction moves farther down (if it does) this might be a way to bypass much of the line.

    How long is that last mile taking?
