The Rim:August JKO Campout

Hey guys just posting our August Adventure! I have not selected a trail, I will research and find one. I just wanted to make sure everyone has a place to camp, so I posted this up a few months early. Any questions or suggestions post up!

This trail is a 4+ with snow on the ground. There are a few play areas such as Push's Bowl, a dry tank most of the year. Most of the difficult hills have by-passes for stock vehicles. Trail can be driven by stock vehicle with care. At Aripine road you can turn left and drive through Aripine and back to SR 260.

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.;)

The Rim

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
