    Deer Valley is closed in the middle of the trail, but if we run it from the South end until the first water crossing and back, it'll be a pretty good day of wheeling. We'll hit the trail on Saturday at 8AM but we'll be camping all weekend

    Camping @ Hermit Valley Campground is right off Hwy 4 so anyone can camp out and ride with anyone else on the trail. No fees

    Required: 4x4, decent ATs, sliders
    Recommended: skids + aftermarket bumpers, locker, recovery gear (winch, hi-lift), CB or FRS radio (I'll have both to communicate between the two)

    You are the king of setting these up. I was looking into dates for my cabin, but figured we could do that in September. Pumped to check out a new trail.

    Yeah the later in the year will probably be better for me. Less people and the weather is still really nice. Maybe the 13-15, but I'll make a thread for that.

    If we go to the cabin when it's snowing, maybe we can get MJ's friend's brother in law to come out with the unimog again to blaze the trail a bit. :)

    he has like 15 different rigs of some sort and he picks and chooses which one to take for any given trail. haha must be nice!

    hey if time permits, we can try to hit up Corral Hollow on the way home. We'll have Jerry bring his chainsaw so we have no issues this time :cool:

    You can get to the camp spot in a car it's right off the road. I'd like to have all the sliders done before then but you never know.

    Bumpers if you don't want to eat up yours. You will for sure hit your bumpers on something on this trail.
