9/18 BULLDOG CANYON Newbie friendly, stock rig friendly!

Recommended Posts

This trail is out by Saguaro Lake so it's pretty close to town.   Great trail for stock rigs and newbies too!   Typically the run is about 2 to 3 hours.   I run this trail several dozen times each season. 

 

We will enter in on 3554 and  exit out  Fr10 on Bush.  If things are going well and it's not too hot maybe 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)  - Great for newbies!

 

REQUIREMENTS:

  • A stock clearance 4x4 with a low range transfer case option, suitable front OR rear recovery point (trailer hitch is fine), stock tires.  
  • 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 (I have a spare).   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 9:00 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.  

At FR10 we will head south to a little picnic spot and have a snack (I will make Cheese crisps!)  And then North to Bush Highway exit or back out 3554.

The trail is about 7 or 8 miles long to Bush.  

Bring the kids, the pets, Grandma.   

Bring something to snack on.  We'll stop for a snack under the shade of some mesquite trees.

Just got in from the (terrible) game. I'd say let's do this run in October if you have some availability then.

October!.  That must be one heck of a hang over. : )  No worries  mate, I do this run a dozen or so times  each season.  PM me if  you have a free day and I can probably make it work.  Watch for other postings.   Take care!

Sounds good!  I run this about every other weekend.  It's a fun trail with lots of scenery and because it's close it doesn't take up the entire day.
