Loose Schedule:

Friday:
Arrival starts at 9am.
Free roam of the park until 5pm.

**Park closes at 5pm. You should be off the trail by 5pm, so the Staff can make sure everyone who is not with the event is out of the park. Grab a bite to eat.

**There will be the typical evening shenanigans, and maybe a night run. Night runs, MUST be in groups, for safety reasons. No solo night running.


Saturday:
Optional meeting at the office at 9am. We will go over some basics, and split into groups for the guided runs. If you are coming later, be prepared to be somewhat on your own. I will try to be available, and the staff will try to point you in the right direction to find an appropriate group. If this is your first time to the Cliffs, or your first time wheeling, I suggest being at the park in time for the meeting and go out on a guided run.

Wheeling until 5pm.

Sunday:

Free roam of the park.

BE SURE TO CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES!

We might hit this up. We will have our yota back out here by then. I'll know a little closer to the date.

Met with Tom and Steve yesterday to figure some stuff out.

Camping:

Looks like the best spot is going to be the same spot from last year. The Cliffs has been slow all year, and the ATV traffic has been low! So the site from last year expanded and has doubled in size. The idea was to try to be on the West side of the "road", but it is very lumpy and doesnt get a breeze.

Access to the camp is the same as last year, and doesnt look to be more torn up. Tom mentioned getting the excavator up there and smothing the road a bit so an RV can get back easier (if we have any) Tow rigs will be fine.

Trails:

I didnt hit any trails to see the condition, Maybe Tom can chime in on that. The low traffic has probably allowed some over growth.....

Can newbys join. Are the trails doable with a stock FJ40?

I have taken mine which is "relatively" stock, 1969 40 with open diffs, stock 6 cyl and 3 on the tree and it did pretty well. I do however have 33's and a a 4" lift. I did the moderate trails but opted out of the more extreme stuff with it. You'll have fun no matter what.
