I've been to Raines. It does have some tracks, but it looks mostly to be for ATV's and dirt bikes. We went out there for a day though and had fun.

Not odd at all. San Jose has an Offroad group here:

San Jose Offroad (San Jose, CA) - Meetup

We are meeting on Sunday at Dave and Buster's at noon to plan outings.

Sunday, May 22, 2011 at 12:00 PM
Dave and Buster's - 940 Great Mall Dr Milpitas, CA

We also get together monthly at Hollister (awesome trails).

I might come along with the friend who also has Rubi.

Is there a more detailed info on the meeting time and place and the "schedule" of events? Do you plan to run both trails on the same day and than camp out for the night?

great! im trying to leave friday and camp at the alpine lake overflow campround. if i cant get ready in time then im meeting the crew in jackson and heading up. here is a qoute from the jeep forum that the run is set up in:

my cell is 530-903-6951 bob

The Trails


-Deer Valley
-Slick Rock

The plan:
-Meet at the Safeway in Jackson at 8:00am, Saturday July 30th,Safeway
-Leave Safeway by 8:30,(Come with a full tank of gas and full stomach, we want to get on the trail as soon as possible.)
-Head up Highway 4 to the campsite(TBA) so people can unload
-Wheel Slick Rock
-Campfire Saturday Night (Please bring cash for camping. I would bring $20 in change (i.e. 2 tens or 1 ten and 2 fives))
-Wake up early and wheel Deer Valley to Highway 88 (If water is too high we will wheel back to Highway 4 and leave from there)


The Requirements:
-Visibly charged fire extinguisher (BC or ABC)
-First aid kit
-Adequate spare tire, jack and lug wrench
-Safety belts for driver and any current passenger
-Adequate attachment points in the front and rear of the vehicle:
-Acceptable forms of attachment points: (All Items must be mounted in a manner to provide adequate strength and integrity)
-Tow hooks of OEM or greater integrity,D-Rings,Shackle/Clevis
-20ft 10,000lb snatch strap without any metal hooks
-Secured battery (no bungee cords)
-31"+ tires
-Spare parts, drive shaft u-joints, spares for whatever non-standard parts installed on your rigs
-Mini skids or reinforced LCA brackets, a t-case skid, and a gas tank skid HIGHLY recommended. These are things that are REALLY HARD to fix on the trail!!
-Most importantly! A GOOD ATTITUDE (This trip will not be about who has a bigger ****. If it turns into that, I will have no problem with not asking you to come back on any other future trips. Its all about having fun, learning, and getting drunk around the campfire telling big lies about the days events.)

-If you are needing help to get your Jeep ready for the trip, please let SCCAFIRE know. He is willing to set up a wrenching day before the trip.


This is a great trip for some of the guys and gals that may be fairly new to 4 wheeling who can get there feet wet and be with others to help them out when needed. This will hopefully be a confidence building weekend for those who are new to the sport. Also,to be able to learn what you and your rig can and cannot do.

Thanks for the info. It looks like whoever gathers this event choose not so on the way meeting spott. "Meet at the Safeway in Jackson at 8:00am, Saturday July 30th,Safeway" this would be a real detour for me coming form Bay Area. The most common meeting point is in Angels Camp, as you guys will be driving to AC from Jackson.
In any case, I plan to fix my brake line tonight if I have time to do it today than yes I am a game and call you on Saturday morning, however, if I won't have time to do brake line today I'll be doing it on Saturday :-().
