Note that Red Rock 4-Wheeler guidelines require 35" plus tires, additional traction devices (e.g. Lockers), enhanced suspension, and high ground clearance for 6-rated trails.

 
  • In the September TOM a small but enthusiastic group participated in the traditional moonlight run.  We drove out to the sandstone terrace between the Monitor and Merrimack to watch the full moon rise, which was tainted orange from recent wildfires. Everyone enjoyed some amazing views, grilled sausage (thanks Mo), Chex mix (thanks Doug and Carma), and ice cream; and returned safely to pavement by 9:30 pm. 

 

  • The October Trail-of-the-Month ran a 'tip-toe' version of Metal Masher.  Thirteen vehicles participated in this 6-rated trail, which involved the standard route through Mirror Gulch to the overlook at Arth's Rim, but skipped the Widow Maker loop.  Thanks to Devon Parsons for leading and to Rick Wolcott for his help with communications.

  • The November Trail-of-the-Month: We had a great turnout for the last trip of the year.  Twenty six vehicles gathered for a planned run up to Dry Mesa.  Because of the large number of vehicles, we split the group in two with approximately half going on to Dry Mesa and the remainder taking the 4x4 trail to Tower Arch.  Much appreciation to Bill Wehrli for leading this trip.

The trail of the month selection is being kept to a rating of 3-6, any higher than that and the attendance drops.  The committee is asking new people who are learning to be trail guides to guide the trails knowing that there will be an experienced mid and tail gunner who know the trail that can help.  To contact someone on the committee, use the Contact tab to send us an e-mail.  E-mails are monitored and answered daily.
