This Sat. Sept 25th Mosier,Or to Mt.Defiance

Meetup 9am Sharis in Troutdale, Or exit 17 off I-84.
Heading to Mosier between Hood River/TheDalles then taking forest service unimproved at times, rough roads towards Parkdale, Or and a short lunch and then up to Mt. Defiance which is rough roads as well. I was going camping but plans changed. Sorry for the short notice.

Sounds fun....what do you mean exactly by "rough roads"? ....rocks? mud? 4x4 required?

There are sections that have some rocks, that is for sure tougher then the easy trails at TSF.. But they are doable in a stock Jeep. With that said I did it last year with a stock LJ on 31's. On the climb to Mt. Defiance I did hit the skidplates a few times but I knew this was going to happen, and took my time with no damage at all.
So in "small" parts, some of it I feel 4lo or 2lo (if equipped) is a good choice.
Here is only a few pics.

Yes, I do believe they use part of our scheduled route behind Mosier the last few years after they moved away from TSF..


A short note to all, We will be departing Shari's no later than 915am for those that decide to go.
I hope you all can make it..

Has to be tomorrow, August 25 as September 25 is a Tuesday. Any idea how long this trip will be or when we expect to get back to Sandy? I have some late afternoon commitments I need to work out.

Oh Yeah, August 25th.. my bad lol.. maybe a moderator could change the month...
As far as using a locker @ TSF good luck... unless it is something you "don't" want to try. Like The crushers, mini rubicon, Airplane hill, and a few others.. Being so dry it's really not even needed. But you will save some gas living on the west side of town going to TSF.. Getting back to town sooner is an option when we get to Parkdale, you could decide to head south on hwy 35 over to hwy 26 to Sandy if time is important to you.

We're not going to be able to make it work out for us today. Have a good run at the trails.
