You should be fine. We can spot you at any point. Plus it's close to you home area. Lol

Sliders are recommended for longer wheelbase vehicles. The stairs are eroded more this year than in years past.

I'm in for this run. It's a 3.5 hrs drive but its worth it to hang out and see everyone. I'm not sure if il be camping or motel. I would like to make a weekend out of it and see the local history.

I was thinking the same. My wife would enjoy seeing the local history in that area. May take Friday off and stay in Angels Camp, that way it's only an hour drive to the trail head Saturday.

There's a campground at the sourgrass trail that's only about a half hour from the trail but its way lower in elevation along the river and has a shower and vault toilets. There are a couple more along highway 4 all above angels camp.

Disclaimer:

I am a jeep enthusiast that likes to plan these little adventures. I am not part of any club, organization or sanctioned event. This trail run is a "enter at your own risk" run. I will not be held responsible for any lost or stolen stuff, damage to your jeep or equipment, etc. I will, however, honor the "jeepers code". Everyone who goes in goes out! I will try to provide as much intel as I can so that you can make a informed decision as to whether you would like to attend or not. Nuff said! Now, let's get out there and enjoy what nature has to offer us, make some new friends, and have some fun with our Jeeps!

(here you go Jimbob)
