NorCal Run: 2nd annual Cow Mountain Trail Run, May 4th, 2013

NorCal Run: 2nd Annual Cow Mountain Trail Run, May 4th. 2013

Round two folks! I thought we’d give it another try and see what kind of trouble we can get into! Provided the gates are open and it’s not raining, we will meet up at the Kmart parking lot in Lakeport at 9:30 AM Saturday morning with a 9:45ish departure to the trail head. Once at the trail head, we will break up into groups. The number of jeeps that attend will determine how many groups we will have. My plan is to offer 2 or 3 difficulty levels. We can do “Easy” “Moderate”, and “Difficult”, or something to that effect. Suggestions on this are welcome. We have plenty of time to plan, so I’m hoping to make this run better than last year.

A couple of volunteers and myself will be executing scouting runs between now and the run date to map trails that will work for said difficulty levels. For those that have never been to Cow Mt., it is an OHV area maintained by the BLM. I use the term “maintained” loosely because many of the trails have been neglected over the years. The website provided below has a map of the area and trail difficulty ratings. These ratings are not exactly true to form anymore. This is why we will be scouting trails to get a better idea of difficulty, and whether they are too overgrown with brush.

Cow Mountain Recreation Area, Ukiah Field Office, Bureau of Land Management California

http://www.blm.gov/pgdata/etc/medial...th_Cow_Mtn.pdf

At the end of the day, we will all hopefully meet up at the obstacle course on the Ukiah side of the area. There are campsites near by for those who would like to camp, or a short drive into Ukiah will provide hotels off the 101 corridor.

Here are a few highlights from last years run....

Cavavan to the trailhead.

Yes, on Red Mountain. It's at the end of the run on the Ukiah side, so you could camp there.

It would be a bit of a long haul for you, but you are welcome to join us if you can. We did a run last year that was a little closer to your neck of the woods. Check this link out.

Thinking of doing another Lost Coast run again this year.

Craig had a good idea that I think I'd like to implement for this run. Let's split the list up into two groups. One group can sign up for the "easy/moderate trails" and the other group for the "difficult/OMG! IS THAT EVEN A TRAIL?" group. This way maybe we can be a little more organized this time, and everyone will know who's in their group from the beginning. Chime in with the group you want to be in.


"Easy/moderate trails" ............. Difficult/OMG! IS THAT EVEN A TRAIL?"

Long time, no see! I think Gene is gonna try to plan a run first week in August for High Lakes. Good to see you're still around.

I'll add you to the list. We will be running two groups, moderate trails, and difficult/pinstripe city trails. Which one would you like to be in?

If you do go before let me know like 2 weeks before and I will see if I can get the time off.

If you guys go, see if you can get past Spring Valley Lake. I would like to know the trail conditions past there.

Count me in, unless something comes up.

How "difficult" is the difficult trail? i.e., would I make it in a TJ Rubicon with a 2" budget lift and 31's (Road focused A/Ts). Though I may have 33's by then with more aggressive tires.

If my friend comes (likely) I'll be doing the moderate regardless, so you can stick me in there for now.
