For those that would like to go and do not know the trail.

From Dirtopia:
This trail is rated most difficult. This trail starts near the Cedar Springs day use area near Silverwood Lake (http://www.dirtopia.com/wiki/Silverwood_Lake), where it forks off from 2N33 Pilot Rock Truck Trail (http://www.dirtopia.com/wiki/Pilot_Rock_Truck_Trail), then meets back up to meet with 2N33 before Pilot Rock.

A full sized truck will run a higher risk of body damage in the tight areas. Lockers are not needed but will help in some areas. Good ground clearance is a must. On most of the numerous climbs there are different skill level paths all rolled into one.



Trip Details:

Meeting Point A, For those coming from the IE or Victorville we are going to meet up at 8AM at the McDonalds at the HWY 138 / I15 exit.

Meeting Point B, For those coming from any other route that does not want to meet at Meeting Point A, we will meet at meeting point B around 8:30AM, we will meet at the day use area just just after (east of) Silverwood Dam off HWY 173.

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&saddr=&daddr=34.305354,-117.310209&hl=en&geocode=&mra=dme&mrcr=0&mrsp=1&sz=16&sll=34.304042,-117.307398&sspn=0.008969,0.019226&ie=UTF8&ll=34.304946,-117.310767&spn=0.008969,0.019226&t=h&z=16 (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&saddr=&daddr=34.305354,-117.310209&hl=en&geocode=&mra=dme&mrcr=0&mrsp=1&sz=16&sll=34.304042,-117.307398&sspn=0.008969,0.019226&ie=UTF8&ll=34.304946,-117.310767&spn=0.008969,0.019226&t=h&z=16)


(The run commences at Pilot Rock Trail Head coords. 34 18 18.5 / 117 18 32.0)

I would anticipate at least 3 hours on the trail, but this will increase with the number of JEEPS.

We will run Channel 10. If you don't get us at Meeting Point A go to Meeting Point B, we will be there longer airing down tires and what not.

This trail has bypasses for the Hard Obstacles so don't be scared Lensman.:thefinger:

I better wear my seeing glasses so, I can make sure your doing it right when I have to spot for you again. Yes, I will have my tow straps, you know I have had plenty of practice pulling Hummers off the trails. So, I am sure your Jeep will be no problem. Just in case, I have the winch. :grinpimp: :beer:

Great run everyone. Was a blast. Took the passenger rail off and reinforced the mounts, straightened out best as possible. :mr-t: Rattle canned the bumpers. And submitted her to a $5 bath. :cookiemonster:

Great pix puddlz! Thanks! New rock sliders arrived today. They should cover up the new damage as well as the old and prevent a similar occurrence in the future. Installation is a bit involved, may take a couple of days but should be worth the effort. I'll be back out to try the wrong line again soon!!
