Bulldog Saturday Feb 24th.

Recommended Posts

Going to give it another try!  Hopefully I won't have to cancel due to foot issues!

 

Yeah, it's going to be nice out!

 

I would like to make it to Wolverine or Apache Trail.    But if someone doesn't have time they can exit early at Bush.

 

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: 2.5 

 

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 9:30am 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. 

 

Folks can either head out trail 10 or head to the wolverine/cottonwood exits.   When we get to Wolverine we can decide to continue to Cottonwood depending on time and how things are going.  

 

We will stop at the watershed building for lunch.  This is not the normal spot,  It's closer to the Wolverine exit. 

 

Bring the kids, the pets, Grandma.   

Bring something for lunch.  We'll stop for about an hour for lunch

Excellent!  I will see you at the trail head.   It's between mile markers 22 and 23 on Usery Pass.  Big dirt area, hard to miss.

That's a bummer!  It's going to be nice out today.  I'll post up another one in a couple of weeks.   Or PM me and we can figure out a date and then post up.
