WARNING:

YOU WILL GET Mojave Pin Striping on your Jeep. AKA bush scrapes. This can and most likely will be a FULL day. We will at times also travel at a little faster than normal for the more flat areas. You will get plenty of dust.

DESCRIPTION:

We will meet in Searchlight, just under an hour from Las Vegas (depending where you live). We will air down and disconnect swaybars at our meetup place. Drivers meeting at 8am please be on time! Please have the APPROPRIATE GEAR WORKING SPARE TIRE/CB RADIO! NO STREET TIRES! Stock jeeps CAN DO this trail! After rollcall & vehicle inspection we will get on road! IF YOU ARE NOT PREPARED YOU WILL BE SENT HOME! Also please bring chairs/lunch/snacks/drinks for the day.

This run is parts of several trails in the Mojave area that are in the California and Nevada Trails books. The first part will be the East Lanfair Valley Trail about 1.5 miles from our meet up location. On this trails, we will see the Paiute Gorge (I think a stunning view, see picture below) and see the Mill foundations at the Leiser Ray Mine (concrete foundations and stone walls remain). We will backtrack a bit up to the Mojave Road and travel West.

We will then cut up to the New York Mountains Trail and then swing over to the Juan Ghost Town Trail. On this trail, we will stop and see the remains at the Juan site ( http://www.ghosttowns.com/states/nv/juan.html ). ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apache_tears )
