The Dusey Ershim is an extremely difficult and beautiful 4x4 trail located in the middle-of-nowhere portion of the Sierra National Forest in California. It's often compared to The Rubicon Trail with similar granite slabs and towering pines, but most folks agree current trail conditions and the 30 mile length make it much tougher. The entire trail is higher elevation (9 to 10k feet), so there's an even shorter wheeling season of Aug 1 through Nov 1 depending on snowpack. This challenging overland adventure will entail rock-crawl style wheeling for 3 to 4 days with primitive tent camping by the trail each night.
THE PLAN -
- Run the Dusey the week of Aug 28 - Sep 3.
- Most of us will leave our houses on Sat or Sun to begin running the trail on Monday.
- Plan 3 - 4 days on the trail, and go home Friday or Saturday.
- The time it takes each of us to get to the trailhead will vary, but we'll all camp nearby the night before we start.
- We will set up camp late afternoon everyday while out on the trail. It will be primitive camping, fire restricted
