suicideking Through a few PM's, we've decided to stick with Gold Mtn. Most likely for noon.

Meet in front of my campsite # 72.

So far confirmed is:

Now that I think about it, pretty sure we skipped it on our JB trip a month or so ago, but I did run it during BBFF. Some minor rock crawling sections. We could hit that instead of Jacoby or maybe hit both.

The only problem with doing Little JB, is when it ends, you're at JB. So how do you resist running JB at that point??

We'll be with Bill and Jerry (not Ben and Jerry) on the on the kickin' back schedule but for those that want to run a trail maybe its worth a shot? Anyone run it before?
I've heard of 2N17X (Pilot Rock), but don't think I've run 3N17. Anyone run it? Could be a possibility!

I've ran it a year or so ago. It's definitely a doable run for everyone. There are a couple of little offshoots that are a little more challenging than the main trail. It's a nice, scenic trail.

Careful with the napping lol. Last time I remember Jerry speaking of a "nap" he came out to a dead party. After our typical trail run on Saturday night, I believe Jerry decided to head to the camper and take a little snooze...to his mistake he woke up about 10pm to find the usual party dying down

I figure try to start a run at 1:00 PM and try to be back around 6:00 or so.

I am certainly not hiking to some remote swimming hole that also likely has small, medium, and large rattlesnakes strewn about the trail leading to it lol.

Yeah, we planned on being up there around 9am. Hopefully we can set up when we get there. Thanks! I'm looking forward to it.

Also, is there any place to fish maybe?

Not sure about the check in. When I went last year, I was able to check in around 9:00 AM on Friday and roughly the same time on Saturday. I had a first come first serve spot on Friday, reserved on Saturday.

I was thinking something moderate on Friday. Still undecided though. Not sure about the Heartbreak area because it's a ways away from Hanna Flat.

BRUT4CE Heartbreak ridge is super easy there isn't anything really to worry yourself over...I've scuffed rims in a parking lot before so I guess you could scuff a rim there....

Its semi scenic....

I say e stick to the top and do Holcomb the others can do 3n16 towards crab flats we can run jb to Holcomb and meet at the other end then go to dishpan.....

Or go hit motino again and this time get everything.....


For the easy crowd there is a road on the other side to castle rock and there's a little lake there that has a really cool hike around it...EXTREMELY pretty and totally chill....

87octane I am up for whatever any one else wants to do. Wheeling, hiking, swimming, hanging off the side of a cliff all sounds good to me.

haha it's really not that bad... we had a full sized Bronco come through with us and he did fine. But it is up high... you start off at around 9000 feet and end up around 6000

something different to consider ... I did it because I waited too long to sign up for Forest Fest ... and I wanted to stay off the trails they were doing

dawhitesJKU I'm getting some rock rails next month as well as a cb. so far i got a 2.5 lift and 33's. i wanna get my rock rails before attempting any course thats harder than Azusa.

Pipe's Canyon is easy too and doable for stock, but you have to not be afraid of heights. There are a few spots where the road gets pretty narrow and you are on the side of a cliff.

The swimming hole -- no requirements. It's mostly a hike on foot. So need enough gas to get there, enough energy to hike to the swimming hole...
