Description

Saturday, Nov. 17, 2012(w/option to camp overnight)

Trip Description:     Rating: Easy.  Limit: 12 vehicles
This event is intended to improve skills on an off highway trip.  We'll cover what things to bring, driving skills, leading a trip, spotting, and recovery, including winching.
There will be a Best Equipped Vehicle contest with prizes being given out for the best prepared vehicle/team.
The day will begin with an orientation at the Azusa Canyon staging lot, then move on to the training area. 
San Gabriel Canyon OHV Area offers up to 150 acres of diverse off-road opportunities. Water crossings, rocks, dirt roads and sand hills are some of the seasonally challenging experiences you will find.  The assortment of physical terrain is unmatched  anywhere in this area.
Optional exploring and/or obstacles to attempt will be available after training. 
Restrooms, tables and parking provided.
