Hey everyone, starting this thread to gauge interest in doing a weekend run to Sourgrass, in the Stanislaus National Forest sometime early June (6-7 or 13-14).

Trail's not too long, some 5 miles total (out and back), and runs alongside a river. Pretty much every obstacle has an easy/moderate line and a challenging line -- even the river crossing. I first ran it on a stock '18 JLUS and since been there with a stock JKU, both times with no problems -- challenging, but not hard :)

Looked around on youtube and this video seems pretty decent at covering the details.

Are you looking at camping up there, hence the two days? Or just planning on doing the trail in one day?

I am very interested, but only on June 6-7. That's if my son can get out of work on the 6th.....

Fun trail. It will be interesting to see Rattlesnake Creeks flow rate. I’ve heard run off can be big. I was their in Oct.

I will talk to Jess today about her schedule and see if we can come spend a day there, that looks like fun.

Apologies for the confusion, meant either Sat or Sun for those two weekends. There's camping there but I was thinking about just a day trip -- unless this turned into Sourgrass + something else (Slickrock is nearby!)

The one day trip works best for us. We are definitely in if it’s the first weekend.

Same, turns out I can only do Sunday for this coming weekend. How are other folks feeling about this Sunday, June 7th?

(PS: Congratulations!)

For the record I tried to negotiate trading Jessica her Jeep for the weekend so I could come play... If you want to know how that went I will share a photo of the garage.
