I haven't been further east on the road toward the Agua Fria river. When I
said it is a muddy quagmire, this is when there are a lot of rains. As a
result, the roads can be deeply rutted, but I have no idea of the
condition now. Even when rutted, I do not think you would have a problem.
But again, if you cannot get all the way in to where the outhouse(?) is,
you can always set up before then. Maybe it isn't known, but the Agua Fria
river area is a national monument. There are nature people that go into
the area. It would seem that the road should, most of the time, be good. I
doubt you would have a problem.
