If anyone else is interested in a a few trails in this area of Parker:
La Ceinnega Springs Road (its a dirt road to the bar and mines)
Here is the plan. meeting at 8: at the parking area by the highway
3Slabs-3.0/3.5: ( been 1 year since i ran this and rain changes things in washes could be sand or boulders) its a warm up trail.
9 to 9:30am ish? if you are late. These trails from here on. I would recommend to all Jeeps that can: No hard tops, no doors. Just to easy to trash those expensive parts. I mean you can get through with out denting or breaking glass, but....all should have a winch it gets very tight/narrow on some of these trails in places. I can not see anything getting through without lockers. Not that it has not been done. But it would be so hard on the jeep that it could lead to breaking drive line components.
President's Choice-4/4.25: This year its a bit harder than the year before. even stacked in that hole people are trashing hard tops and the A pillars. Launch pad is always a hit and miss for me, that why we have winch.
Rio Lobo-4.25: Depending on how the day goes and time. another classic trail in the area. Deep Articulation and off camber leans into rock walls. My first dent was on this. did not get off camber enough to get through. You have to really lean it here.
my favorite pic of this trail. from the back of our jeep. 2012 Parker Hard Core Poker Run for the Wounded Warriors.
the snake turns on Rio Lobo. Tight articulated narrow fun.
