Dec 4th Sunday BULL DOG run

Recommended Posts

Only got one BULLDOG run in October and  no plans for November.  A few folks said they where interested so here we go!  So assuming I don't break down on the Black Friday Log Corral run we are doing Bulldog!  (If I do break down I will bring the ZR2 instead)

 

This run is close to the Valley.  The first part is a really fun and scenic.  If we head off to Wolverine it's a bit more of a shelf road trail but the scenery is still very nice. 

 

 This time we will head south on when we get to  FR10 and exit at Wolverine.   If you want to go North on Fr10 and exit Bush that okay too, come hang with us for the first part of the trip.  It's a short quick run from the 3554/10 intersection to the Bush exit

 

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 going South to Wolverine.   There is one tipsy spot going downhill that can be a little exciting otherwise I would rate it a 3 max. 

 

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 stock 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 less 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.  I have spare radios too. 

 

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.   

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 on 10). 

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 or  palo verde trees.

You are added!

I sure plan on going!  If my primary rig is broke I'll bring the Colorado. 

Wait till the day before, or at least till December, to get your permit.  They last 6 months so no need to use up the last bit of November.
