Always better to caution on the side of safety.

XJ_Phil oooops! Starts on old 66 by the market next to the enterance of Silver Lakes. By the way, can anyone tell my how I went from newb to Jeeper? I like it.........
11-20-2012 09:04 PM
XJ_Phil have you ever taken that trail that starts from the old route 66 and goes east toward the 15 fwy, or you can keep to the left and end up on top of that hill looking down on Silver Lakes? There are a couple small challenges along the way, but mostly it is just an easy way to spend 3 or 4 hours without getting into much trouble

minisaba Yesterday was a really fun day. Thanks to all who made it, it was nice to get to put faces on names. Like in all the adventures I've been on, everyone always friendly and always willing to lend a hand. I only have a few pictures that my wife took so I'll post them up sometime tomorrow.

I would have to say some of the shoots (side trails) off of Cleghorn were a little more than a beginner trail. But Cleghorn it self or what we call the bypasses were green circle for sure.
No trailers needed for JV, I wheel for the day there, then roll up the windows, plug in the iPod, and set the cruise to go home.

I have also considered (depending on group size) starting a few miles down the highway at Piot Rock, going up to start 2n17 going down pilot rock to the spillway Dam and then over to Cleghorn from 138 and up to the 15...
Good idea Bill

I'm in for that Dave

SoCalChris Thanks for the video Rick. Can't wait for the next run up there

Not really, just some off camber stuff and few steep incline / declines. There is one uphill ledge (optional) that may require one locker, but pretty mild stuff for the most part. Its actually a really good trail for people to try out their jeep and get a feel for those type of situations. I like it just because its close and convenient and it draws a good crowd. You could be 100% stock and have a good time...

Gunner That was fun. Thanks for posting it.

This would be a fun run. I like putting the two trails into one run.

Okay. So maybe I'm being a little harsh on Cleghorn. But really, even a bone stock Wrangler can do it. You might get a little tippy in a few spots, but if you just take your time, and trust your spotter, you'll be fine. And while I wouldn't want to run the double black diamond trails at JV on my open Diffs, there's plenty of single black diamond stuff out there that I'm more than willing to do. Just my $ .02 worth.
