WHEN
Wednesday, December 28th


WHAT
Start with Box Canyon from South to North (enter at Price Rd).
Have Lunch
Then head to Upper Woodpecker, take a peek at Ajax Mine for those that want


Plan is to run Box Canyon first, which is a trail that anyone/everyone can enjoy, especially Noobs!

Then go into Woodpecker and Ajax, which are far more technical. This will give an option for those that want to just do Box Canyon a chance to bail out at that point if they want and others can continue on to their impending doom..... Smile

Info about the Trails:
Box Canyon (very easy, but fun and beautiful trail) is a signature trail, good trail for beginners. Maybe a 2.0 level trail. One signature obstacle that is very doable, as long as you have a locker or a-trac. If not, we can tug you up Smile

Woodpecker and Ajax are more challenging and technical and great to test out your new skids or lift Smile Probably a 3.0 now since the rains
Woodpecker has been graded at the beginning, but most of the obstacles are all still intact. And Ajax is still the same constant barrage of wash and mini rock crawling.

Coming down the signature waterfall Obstacle in Box Canyon, we will go up it this time (easier than it looks)!





1Louder's Video Contribution!





MEETUP
Depart from Shell Station in Gold Canyon at 8am (off of RT 60 across from the Renaissance Fair).
www.google.com/maps/pr...d-111.4675

Go to airdown spot off of Price Road and then get on the trail around 9am.

For sure an all day event if - bring Lunch and water.

RECOMMENDED FOR WOODPECKER (Box Canyon is fine with stock):
CB
Sliders
Skids
33" Tires
Lift

Possible pinstriping and minor skid/slider scraping.

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