Charles and I are running bulldog on Sunday

Recommended Posts

We will keep it pretty short since it's starting to get warm.   Hang out under some trees in the shade and make lunch.   I'll bring cheese crisps and some other goodies. 

 

We will enter in on 3554 and probably exit out  Fr10 on Bush.  If things are going well and it's not too hot maybe head out to the Wolverine exit or run back through 3554.   

 

A permit is required, it's $6, lasts 6 months and is specific to the Bulldog Canyon area:  https://www.recreation.gov/vehiclepermits/3332401

 

  • Technical Rating: 2-3 (easy) if you exit off of Bush, I'd give it a 4 if we go South to Wolverine.   There is one tipsy spot on the way to Wolverine going downhill that can be a little exciting. 

 

REQUIREMENTS:

  • A stock clearance 4x4 with a low range transfer case option, suitable front OR rear recovery point (trailer hitch is fine), stock tires.   (I've done this trail in a ZR2 out to Wolverine)
  • Rigs & drivers must meet all the typical state/federal legal requirements for on-highway vehicles (license, insurance, registration, seat belts, lights, etc.)
  • $6 permit per vehicle.  Each OPERATOR must have a permit, families can share a permit
  • This is a great trail for people with little to no experience.
  • Everyone must stay on the designated trails 

 

Radios:  Not required.   Ham on 462.700, CB or FRS all work for me.   Trail finding is easy and we'll keep you in our mirrors. 

 

Itinerary:

Meet up time will be 10:00 am at fr3554 trail head off of Usery Pass.   We'll air down (optional) and chat a bit. 

We'll stop at least twice to enjoy the view and chat.  I'll make some cheese crisps for anyone interested in a snack when we stop for lunch. 

At FR10we will head North to Bush Highway exit or South to Wolverine.  

The trail is about 7 or 8 miles long to Bush.  Wolverine is another 10 or so miles and takes another 45 or so minutes (we will stop less). 

Bring the kids, the pets, Grandma.   

Bring something for lunch.  We'll stop for about an hour for lunch under the shade of some mesquite trees.

Excellent.  You've been missing out on what I consider the best part of the trail!  How many in your party?

That is the correct spot.    It's between mile marker 22 and 23.  As you approach the parking area there are signs warning to watch for pedestrians.    There are some popular hiking trails in bulldog and across the street from the parking lot.    Be a bit cautious as you roll into the parking lot.   Sometimes there are dogs, kids, horses, sxs and other folks not paying attention. 

 

Although I imagine it will be a bit less busy tomorrow.  

 

I will be bringing an appetizer (unnamed because I don't want @Trail Toy to be jealous) , BBQ pork  sliders and cheese crisps for everyone to enjoy during lunch.

A nice run today.   Short but sweet.   We had a couple of nice chats and then relaxed  under the shade of a tree and enjoyed lunch.  The wind was a bit gusty but not too bad and it kept the flying pests away.    I always enjoy the seat time and the company today was superb.    I might try to sneak another run in before it gets too hot.
