Cinders OHV Volcano Bowl Trail Ride Details:

  • Note that the campground is car accessible (paved roads), the following applies only to the optional Saturday trail ride...
  • We rate The Cinders OHV area 4x4 Moderate. Stock high-clearance 4x4s are generally fine on the trails. Aggressive tread tires (such as All-terrain or Mud Terrain) are recommended. A 4x4 with *low range* is required. A solid frame-mounted tow point is required (trailer hitch, factory tow hooks, etc.). Airing down is required (if you don't have a compressor to air back up with, many of us do and will lend you some air!).
  • We will be traveling on a paved road from camp to the Cinders OHV and back so vehicles must be street-legal/licensed or towed.
  • CB Channel: 4 or Ham Frequency: 146.460 - (it's ok if you don't have either for this run)
  • Be sure to you are at the campground before 9AM on Saturday if you're coming on the trail ride... and don't forget to pack a lunch & plenty of water!
  • FYI: This is year the trail ride will be the usual fairly short version again - i.e. we'll get back to camp by early afternoon.
