Cherry Creek is a 41 mile run through the Sierra Anchas that spans a range of geographies from mountain pine to low desert. This trip is considered a bit of a swan song for the trail as it is slated to be closed by the Forest Service via their recent Travel Management Plan. We have a short span of time where running the trail is still allowed.
TRAIL DIFFICULTY: Exploratory
Experience driving difficult trails recommended. Trail gains its rating for the following reasons:
- Off camber: mild to extreme
- Possible high water crossings
- Narrow shelf roads
- Trail/switchback washouts guaranteed
- Potential for body damage
- All vehicles are required to meet state legal requirements, (i.e.: current registration and insurance) & have functional seat-belts for each occupant
- Must have suitable recovery points front and rear
- Rock sliders/rocker protection
- Skid plate protection of important components
- Flexy suspension with sway bar disconnects
- High-clearance 4x4 with low-range
- 33"+ aggressive all-terrain or mud-terrain tire
- Each vehicle must have a GMRS or Ham Radio in good working order
- Winch, aftermarket differential covers, high-clearance metal bumpers, low axle gearing, 4:1 transfer case, 35"+ tires.
- Spare fuel if you have a thirsty rig (trail is only 40 miles, but there is only 1 shot at refueling in Roosevelt before you hit a long, dead stretch of highway home).
- Experience on difficult trails is a plus
- A cool head and a positive attitude
