Bulldog before Super Bowl Sunday 11th short run

Recommended Posts

Going to do the 'short' run.  Enter Usary pass (3554) and exit Bush Hwy.   

 

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: 2.0  (We got a Subaru Forrester through this part of the trail)

 

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 10:00am 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 (and maybe a snack).   If the weather is clear we will get a fantastic view of snow covered 4 peaks. 

Anyone that wants to play on the play hils will have plenty of time.

 

When we get to Trail 10 we will turn left and head out to the Bush Hwy

 

We should be back on the road by 1pm. 

 

 

Bring the kids, the pets, Grandma.   It's a non-club event so if you have a buddy that wants to join that's fine too!

 

 

 

 

 

 

3554 trail head is on Usary pass road between mile markers 22 and 23. :
