  1. From the mall-crawlin’ folks, who brought you March Madness and Rocktoberfest in 2019: MARCH MADNESS 2020 This year’s version of March Madness features several of the Kingman area's most historic, scenic and challenging off-road runs. We’ll open with Home Court, Kingman’s original rock crawling trail that was reopened a few years ago and remains one of the most challenging trails in the area. Day 2, Features Safelite with obstacles that will challenge the most aggressive 4x4s with bypasses for the mortal among us. Day 3, We move to The Wedges. The biggest obstacle is the wedge, of course. Or, it could be the waterfall at the end. One of the more challenging trails in the area. Day 4, Serendipity has the most memorable Gatekeeper most drivers will ever attempt. It also closes with a very tricky waterfall. One thing about this run - no one ever forgets the Gatekeeper. Day 5, Mile High Loop is the only run that is not in the Hualapai Mountains south of Kingman. This one is in the Cerbats that west of town. This is the easiest of our runs, but it’ll still grab a differential or two. It also has spectacular views and numerous old mines you can explore. It begins on the desert floor and climbs to 6,000 feet and follows the ridgeline of the mountains. MARCH MADNESS (Start times and locations TBA) Wednesday, March 18: Home Court Thursday, March 19: Safelite Friday, March 20: The Wedges Saturday, March 21: Serendipity Sunday, March 22: Mile High Loop All runs require a minimum of 33-inch tires, high clearance and a hardtop, cage or roll bar (specifics will be updated). The most central town to all runs is Kingman, AZ. Local motel rooms are usually in high demand in march, so reservations should be made ASAP. Extensive dispersed camping is available near the trailheads off of Blake Ranch Road south of I-40 (Exit 66). There is ample room for RVs and trailers at a number of locations off of Blake Ranch Road and a large camping area just past the end of the pavement. There is an RV park, truck stop and general store at I-40 and Blake Ranch Road (Exit 66). Kingman is the nearest location for beer, liquor and other general shopping. 4x4 parts and accessories are not readily available in Kingman. The nearest extensive parts sources are 100 miles away in the Las Vegas area. Feel free to post here, if you wanna come. Sponsored by: OffRoadDance.com, OffRoadPassport Rocks And Wheels
  2. We always wanna have one easier trail during the event . But not too easy .
  3. We ccould think about putting it on the next March Madness trail list.
  4. We are talking about the Bull Run on the last day. That is a moderate trail with a short rock crawling section, which probably can be bypassed. It is a very nice and scenic trail and not very long. I have done it in march with Ric and a friend of him. Pig Iron and Barneys Revenge will be super hard. Black Inkie has, if I read that correctly, one very difficult obstacle.Wayne will know more, once the pre runs happened.
  5. Rocktoberfest 2019 will be Saturday, Oct. 12 through Tuesday Oct. 15th. Do you have what it takes to handle four days of the toughest trails in Mohave County? We have a whole batch of trails that have never been included in Rocktoberfest or March Madness and they are guaranteed to test modified rigs. ROCKTOBERFEST TRAILS OCTOBER 12-15 PIG IRON BARNEY’S REVENGE BLACK INKY SPRING BULL MOUNTAIN (All runs meet at the Kingman Powerhouse Visitor Center at 8:30 a.m. and depart promptly at 9 a.m.) Pig Iron, Saturday, Oct. 12 (Trailhead, 9:30) Pig Iron is a short run in the Hualapai Mountains near Devil’s Dip and Serendipity, but is considered the most challenging of the runs in the area. The run is in a wash where there are numerous large rocks, tight squeezes and loose dirt and sand. Barney’s Revenge, Sunday, Oct. 13 (Trailhead, 9:30) Another run in the Hualapai Mountains, but this is on the other side of Hualapai Mountain Road. Historically, this is one of the oldest and most challenging runs in the Kingman area. Expect off camber, big rocks, steep angles and loose surfaces - typical of Kingman’s more difficult runs. Black Inky Spring, Monday, Oct. 14 (Trailhead, 9:45) Staying in the Hualapais, this run is off of historic Walnut Creek Canyon. Black Inky Spring is another short, tricky run in remote Willow Canyon. Expect steep angles, more big rocks, sand and some great views in a canyon that is so remote it’s still very seldom visited. Bull Run, Tuesday, Oct. 15 (Trailhead, 9:30) Rocktoberfest closes out in the Cerbat Mountains north of Kingman on Bull Run. A steep climb and descent with a play area at an old quartz quarry on top of Bull Mountain are just the beginning of this short, but challenging run. A section of rugged wash finishes out the run. Every kind of obstacle you can imagine, except a waterfall. REQUIREMENTS: All vehicles must have 33-inch or larger tires, lockers front and rear, recovery points, working seat belts or harnesses and hardtop or roll cage. Body armor is recommended due to high risk of body or mechanical damage. Signed waivers (available onsite) must be turned in prior the runs (one waiver covers all runs). As always with Rocktoberfest, it is a gathering of friends. There are no charges or fees. The only requirements are a capable vehicle and willingness to risk body or mechanical damage (and signing a waiver and modeling release). Sponsored by OffRoadPassport.com, OffRoadDance.com and RAW. Meeting point and time will be posted soon. Either post here in this thread, if you wanna come or accept the invite on RAW.
