Little Rattlesnake Jeep Run

Around 10 AM Sunday August 12th, 2012 Eastern Washington Adventures members met up at The Wood Shed in Nile Valley for the Little Rattlesnake 4×4 Run. Only three rigs made this run: Ceg (CJ5), The Middle Kid (CJ3A) and Issytj (TJ).

We convoyed to up FS1500 and aired down at the gravel. We turned on FS1503 and then run FS1501 to the end where the Little Rattlesnake 4×4 Trailhead (4W680) is.

The Little Rattlesnake 4×4 Trail was very dusty. The trail did not seem as tight as it was two years ago when I ran it with my same CJ5. I saw where some trees were cut down and some by-passes were made. If people don’t want to dent their rigs, they should not be on a trail that is meant for vehicles not to exceed 75 inches in width and a wheelbase not to exceed 95 inches in length. It is very sad to see people are screwing it up for others.

Once at the end of the Little Rattlesnake 4×4 Trail, we went up to Timberwolf Mountain. We really did not have a good view because it was hazy.

Next we headed over to 4W325 and ran it. We took 4W671 down and stopped at Bear Lake.

After a break at Bear Lake, we ran down to US12 next to the Oak Creek Feeding Station to air up for home.

This was a great of fun thanks to all who came.

Here are some photo of the day:
