Saturday - 4/25 Short Notice Run

We invite you along as 2 or 3 of us Pahrumpians make a Fugowie trip southwest of Las Vegas on the east and south side of Mt. Patosi. If you happen to live in Pahrump, we will leave the Smith's parking lot at 8:00AM.

We will depart at 9:00AM from the parking area 300 yards SOUTH of the corner of Nevada 160 and Cottonwood Valley Road. Heading west on 160, Cottonwood Valley Road goes south from hwy 160 about 100 yards BEFORE (east) the road widens with another lane for the climb up to Mountain Springs. There is a BLM provided pit toilet in the parking area as well. There is no turn lane across 160 so be careful.

APPROXIMATE GPS coordinates of the turnoff per DeLorme Topo 6.0 -

N 35 59.789
W 115 27.124

Google Earth looks to be

N 35 5956.35
W 115 2650.60

You may be wondering what a Fugowie trip is? It is named in honor of Denver Colorado's Mile-Hi Jeep Club patrol 12, the Fugowie Four Wheelers of which I am a member. This patrol (sub club if you will) got its name back in the days when public lands were wide open with virtually no regulations for exploration, there was no GPS, and a paper topo map might be your best friend. In those days, we often would come to a crossroad and wonder... where the fugowie?

Well today a Fugowie trip just means seeing what is out there with no fixed plan, but a with a general area in mind. There are some roads south of 160 and off Cottonwood Valley Road that look interesting, and I don't know what to expect specifically trail wise. I've only been across from hwy 160 to Good Springs, The main Cottonwood Valley Road I believe can be done by a stock Wrangler, but good driving skills and 32" or 33" tires could make it easier. The road is bumpy, rocky, and could be dusty.

Bring your chair, lunch and especially a sense of adventure! We might end up at Good Springs for lunch, but we also might end up saying where the fugowie?

Sounds like fun. In the Nevada trail book there is a lot of trails from good springs to your side of the mountain. Unfortunately I will be in AZ for the weekend.
