Robbie's First Offroad Adventure

December 30th 2017

Description

This is a change in date and time.

This will be my 5 year old grandson's first Jeep run. We will see how he does and may just stick to the graded road... or not.

Now I plan on doing just Cleghorn starting  little later and stopping half way through for lunch.

Cleghorn is an easy trail and a difficult trail that keeps crossing with pretty good views of what is ahead.  Most of the obstacles are steep climbs which may be impassable if it is raining so the run will be cancelled if it is raining. There are usually bypasses for the rough stuff.


We will leave the Norco Chevron station (6th St. exit off the 15N) at 0900.  Gassing up there should provide enough for the whole trip.  There is a McDonalds next door and a Jack in the Box across the street, if anyone is interested.

We should be at the trail head by 1000. If anyone wants to meet us there.
