    This is not an official 406 Cruisers Club Event. (I know the club has scheduled the Ringing rocks for the following weekend) I am putting this out there for anyone who might want to join.

    I will update this first page as information becomes available and plans are set.

    This tentative plan is as follows:

    June 2nd- Saturday - Ringing Rocks from the Whitehall side
    Bozeman meet up at 9 in the target parking lot. We will leave from Bozeman and drive to Whitehall.

    From Whitehall we will meet up with @jtxterra and possibly more at the gas station around 10:30 -11:00

    Plan is to do the trail and then camp out somewhere in the forest service. Unsure of the amount of snow on this trail.

    June 3rd - Sunday - Elkhorn Mine Trail
    Most likely in Boulder or close on Sunday Morning.

    Meet in Boulder at the gas station at 10:00 for anyone showing up for Sunday

    Snow maybe a factor on this trail- last year when the club did it about this time of year the mine was snowed over but i don't remember any on the trail itself, just a lot of streams running in the road. Definitely remember getting snow sprinkled on us at lunch.

    Putting this out there for anyone that might want to join. Either to camp out and do them both or a day trip of one or the other. Neither trail is that hard (when dry), I believe there are decent bypasses for everything on ringing rocks but who knows how the snow will be a factor. Ringing rocks has a couple water crossings and some places to stretch your legs if i remember correctly. One big washed out hill that might be interesting

    Please everyone have your vehicle in good working order and bring at the very least a functioning CB radio. Im sure we can find a loaner if needed. I will have my ham and will be on 146.46. Not sure if anyone else thats attending uses ham.

    I don’t remember the water crossings being that deep. You think they will be enough to really worry about ? I know a lot of run off but can’t be that bad right ?
