Trail ride tomorrow night. Cottonwood Pass. Saturday, Feb 25.

Make sure you post up that you are going so we'll know when we can leave as a group. Start meeting around 5PM. We'll probably leave around 5:30 or earlier if everyone that posts is there.

The drive to the trail is about half an hour south of the the meeting spot. The trail is about 12 miles and with a slow pace and a break at the peak, it should run 2-3 hours. It exits at Blue Diamond.

Cottonwood Pass is an easy trail. No surprises. Nothing technical. No hazards. Stock friendly. I didn't use 4WD at all when we last ran it a few days ago.

Meet here: 36° 0'54.91"N 115°10'57.89"W
Start here: 35°51'27.18"N 115°26'40.59"W
Break Here: 35°57'14.52"N 115°26'16.64"W
End here: 35°59'50.59"N 115°26'48.39"W

For those without a GPS, here are directions to the meeting spot:
From I-15 exit at Silverado Ranch (South Point Casino)
Head West, then turn right at first traffic light onto Dean Martin.
First street on right is Gary St. It's an empty street that ends at the interstate.

There will be a break at the halfway mark around a peak with a beautiful view of the entire strip. There is also a very steep drop off a cliff if you aren't mindful of where you are. Everyone please bring a good flashlight. If you are bringing your kids, make sure someone keeps a close eye on them at all times.

My wife and I have to start our Sunday at 5AM, so we won't be able to hang out after the trail, but since most of you have weekends off I'm sure someone can organize an after party.

Seems like there are a few Jeeps down for repairs. If you ask, I'm sure enough people are going that can spare a seat.

I'll repost this tomorrow.

I wouldn't be surprised if it bent on top of that mountain the other day. That trail sucked.

That's Conan witch magic there! Beware the evil incubus!

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

I'm sure it sucks offroad, but I'd still love to have one like it.
