Default 6/15/19: Number 7 TJ Shake Down Run Sunflower Mine Loop 4x4 Moderate +

The Sunflower Mine loop is located off Highway 87 (Beeline Highway) near Mt. Ord. The trail offers a variety of challenges: rock crawling in the creek, steep loose climb out of the creek, narrow and sometimes off-camber shelf roads, and more! The trail is very scenic, as it winds back into a canyon, and offers neat views of the highway and Mt. Ord. Please take note of rig minimums and suggestions.

It's been 'Under the Knife' for months! Come help us shake out the bugs in G's new-to-him TJ!!

Meet-up: Saturday, June 15, 2019 @ 8:30 AM at the Baja gas station (Chevron) on Hwy 87 and Fort McDowell Rd: Map link here...
