Going to make a run up to Sourgrass trail on Saturday. Hoping to be up there by 8:30. It’s a very mild trail that is a fun and relaxing day without stress. Anyone that wants to join is welcome.

We had a good time. No damage. Nobody on the trail. Takes about 3-4 hours to head in and back out. It’s definitely a beautiful area that borders the north fork of the Stanislaus river. I hadn’t been there in years and it was pretty washed out. Way doable for a stock rubicon. Some of the areas are quite a bit steeper or more washed out than they appear in photos.

Amazing, thank you for the photos! Do you reckon a lifted Sahara (2") w/ sway bar disconnected & 33's would be able to pull this off? Definitely not stock, right?

I'm waiting to drop it off at the shop and new get tires, quick dc's, & rock sliders (still investigating lift options, opinions welcome!) and then I'll be more than happy to join.

Definitely keep posting (or DM) whenever you're planning to go out; would love to join some day.

Sound alike you are on the right path. We’d love to have you. It’s nice to have a wide range of people for get togethers. We should plan a pismo trip at some point too.

You can use google maps to figure out the exact distance to the sourgrass day use area. The closest intersection is hwy 4/Boards Crossing rd in dorrington.

That’s not too bad. I’m about 1.5 hours away. Let me know when you want to make a run. Are you open to weekdays?

Oh man, this looks like tons of fun. Would have joined but totaled my JLUR about a month ago, and am waiting for the new one to arrive in a few weeks so will be able to join. A few pictures from crash and a trail run to Barrett Lake near Tahoe attached.

Did you flop it on the trail? I’ve been up there. It’s beautiful. Did you check out the plane crash?

At this rate, it’ll be next year, but I’ll definitely let you know.

I might be able to swing a weekday (Monday or Friday) with enough planning ahead.
