What about camping on our own away from community campsites. The area has plenty of places to camp away from the crowds.

You can camp where you like, I like camping in the campground and thought it would be cool to have all the jeep guys together in one group. Otherwise I would have planned the trip for July.;)

Jason,

I'm new to the forum but would be interested in attending. I live in Phoenix and get to the rim often to ride quads but haven't had my JK out wheeling. Let me know if you still have room in the group!

Thanks,

Brian

Hey guys did this trail this weekend and it was fun. There are actually a ton of trails branching off of powerline trail.

Wanted to note that the entrance you have in the OP is now gated off, with a no trespassing sign. We ended up going back out to the 260 and in through Dead Horse Dr. which is half way down the trail. There is however another way in according to some locals. Once we got on the trail we backtracked to the beginning and I marked it on my GPS. Tonight Iíll see if my GPS will give me the directions from in town.

By the way, towards the end of the trail there is a large deforested area with a big creek bed. Very fun and technical as an option, traction device will be required.

Lets get a few more guys and or Gals, or Families out for this campout. The area is awesome, I was up there a couple weeks ago, but more towards the back (lake Chevelon) this is gonna be an awesome time and a very fun run.
