Saturday 12/12 trail run.

We're getting some rain and possibly some snow. It'll be a fun time to head out and explore the trails. Let's meet up 9:30am at the Sierra/I-15 fwy exit. We can check out Lytle Creek and possibly make trek through the mountain and drop down the Lone Pine side. At that point we can trek over Cleghorn or up the less travelled Cajon area. We'll play by ear.

Post if interested. Dress warm!

You might consider the Baldy Mesa trail. It's pretty cool. We aren't expecting snow in the mountains, but there is rain on the high desert and Cajon pass.

Re: Saturday 12/12 trail run.

It was a fun run today. Not as much snow as we'd experienced last Winter, but it was still fun! Checked out a couple of less traveled trails as well, but we were foiled in our attempt to get to the Lone Pine side. The trail was closed.

Re: Saturday 12/12 trail run.

Part of the trail looked like a stream! Rain was coming down hard during parts of the run.

It was fun meeting everyone! Had a great dinner with my son at The Hat. The pastrami was delicious!

Re: Saturday 12/12 trail run.

Wow, that is oh-so-very-cool. I can't wait to pop my cherry and take my FJ on a trail. Work has been keeping me busy on the weekends, and I can never join in on this. And when I didn't have work this weekend, I didn't check the site to know about this. I missed out. Oh well... Mine is a all stock one and I don't know if it could have done the rocky part of the trail I think... Great pictures by the way!

FooFoo you would be surprised how well a stock FJ will do offroad. Keep your eyes on the local threads and hook up with these guys. They are great with newbs and will help you to learn your rig. Dont shy away because you havent gone on trails yet. The best way to learn is with experienced wheelers. I have gone on a few trails with the guys from the forum and they are always willing to help a new guy out. Now is the time of year to do it. The snow runs in your FJ are always a blast. Have fun, See you in the snow!
