Snow Mountain Run in Mendocino National Forest, June 22, 2013
 
Update on Pre-Run:

I did the pre-run to Snow Mountain on Friday, May 31st. The route I planned took much longer than I had anticipated so this will be an overnight run. The first day we’ll leave from the Chevron Station in Upper Lake (corner of Hwy 29 and Hwy 20) at 9:30AM on Saturday, June 22nd. We’re going to loop around the North side of Snow Mountain Wilderness area, coming out at Stonyford, then through Bear Valley and out onto Hwy 20 at Hwy 16. There’s a lot of great views and beautiful country on this trip.

It will take us about 4 hours (approx 44 miles) to get to Bowery Flat where we’ll camp which has a small creek. Once we leave the main Bear Creek Road, the remaining 30 miles will be much slower because we’ll be in first and second gear.

There are no facilities at Bowery Flat but there is one at West Crockett camp which is about 2 miles from our camp. I chose Bowery Flat because there’s a nice open meadow where we will have plenty of room. Once we get to our campsite, there are numerous trails to explore if you want to keep wheelin after you set-up camp. There’s also Bear Wallow trailhead that goes into the wilderness area for those of you that like to hike (approx 2 miles from Bowery Flat).

On Sunday, June 23rd we’ll leave Bowery Flat at 9:00AM. It will take us approx 6 hours from Bowery Flat to Hwy 20 and 16. We can stop in Stonyford for those that may need gas (it’s 73 miles from the starting point at the Chevron Station in Upper Lake to Stonyford).

Total miles from the Chevron Station in Upper Lake to Hwy 20 and 16 is approx 103 miles. You may want to bring extra gas if you plan on exploring some of the other trails once we get into camp. I’ll have a map to show you the extra jeep trails right outside of camp. For those of you that may want to hike into the wilderness area, I can show you that on the map as well.

Pictures are on page 7.

Lady drivers are welcome :highfive:

You're right, if I let him go he will be riding copilot. . . . only if he gets my beer for me :cheers2:

Gofish TJ 05-05-2013 08:05 PM

Ohhhh . . . I like the way you think, I'm so tired of making lunches as lowrangers co-pilot. I think I'm going to take advantage of this as much as I can :D

lowranger 05-05-2013 08:33 PM

If I remember right..... the driver (pilot) as to fill the Jeep up, and then after the run has to air the tires back up and then wash the Jeep. Sure.....I'll make the lunch and hand her a beer as I have one with her. :thumbsup:
