Charouleau Gap (shar-lou) is a 4x4 route "maintained" (not) by the "Rough Riders" of Tucson....and it is 'rough.' IT IS NOT A FIRE ROAD BY ANY MEANS. It might as well be single track because there are only so many lines to take. It's a great training route...1800 ft climb to the Gap w/ hardpack, sand, ROCKS, rivlets, and SLICKROCK sections...coming down is more fun than going up of course, and there are a few hike-a-bike sections unless you have sick technical skills and super sticky tires...

GeoLadders again supports 'Uploading' directly from a Garmin device to Post activities, but using the IE browser only (Microsoft Interent Explorer). Plug in your Garmin to your computer and give it a try, just click 'Upload from GPS' button above this text. Or, if uploading a new route, click the red 'Upload Activity' button top upper right.

Also, 'Downloading' routes directly to a Garmin device to follow a route on the GPS, or to race a Virtual Partner (yourself or others) on the GPS, is again supported (IE browser only). Notice the 'Virtual Partner' tab after hitting 'Download' button above this text.
* How to 'Upload' (or POST) a GPX file to an existing GeoLadders route from your Garmin gps. For example, upload your activity to Strava then export ACTIVITY as GPX from Strava to your computer. Open the activity in Strava, click the 'Action' icon on left (wrench), select 'Export GPX' (saves to 'Downloads' on your computer). Go to, open the existing route you want to post to, select 'Post GPX to this route' (on left), then click the 'Browse' button (middle of page), find the GPX in your 'Downloads' directory. Double click, save. That's it. Your route appears on and in your dashboard.

this is not a fireroad by any's a 4x4 might as well be single track because there are only so many lines to take...there is no way any fire truck or fire "jeep" of any sort would make it up this route...
