WHAT

An easy, fun night run!

It's Halloween so come celebrate with us!

We will be doing a night run to Box Canyon Run and after we climb the waterfall, stopping to hang out and have a campfire as well as dinner.

So its a great chance to decorate your truck or yourselves and hang out!

Please bring some wood as well as your grill and food and candy Smile

Also, feel free to camp out after you want as well.

We will start with Box Canyon from South to North (enter at Price Rd).
After dinner, will head out North via Mineral Moutain Mine road

Info about the Trail:
Box Canyon (very easy, but funl) is a signature trail, good trail for beginners and all.

Go to airdown spot off of Price Road and then get on the trail around 4:30pm.


A fun run for veterans, a fun run for noobs who want to see what their truck can do and use their lights!


POTLUCK AND CAMPING LOCATION
we will be meeting in a nice clearing for the Potluck and camping. Please feel free to bring your Potluck dish as well as a bundle of firewood.

It is easily accesible - head east on the 60 (coming from PHX). Take a right (south) onto Mineral Mountain Rd. Then take a right (west) onto Gasline rd.

About 3/4 mile, take a right (past the wash) and drive into the clearing. Everything is trailer friendly here.

Here are the coords:

Again, if you plan on joining us for the Potluck or to camp, you need a permit.

We've strapped much lesser GMC vehicles up the waterfall before. You should be fine.
