BULLDOG this Sunday? 2/5/2023

Recommended Posts

Should be nice out.  I wouldn't mind getting out either for a short run (Done by about 1:30) or we can take it all the way to Apache trail.  (Done around 3:30)

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 (easy)  if we don't head towards Wolverine, 2.5 if we do. 

 

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.   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 10:30am 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. 

 

We can either head out trail 10 to the Bush Hwy, go back on 3554 or head to the wolverine/cottonwood exits.  

 

 

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 and palo verde trees. (and maybe a pop up)
