Lassen Applegate Emigrant Trail Ride – by High Rock Trekkers 4WD Club

This is a 4WD trip for high clearance 4WD vehicles only. The route used will follow the same trail heavily used during the Gold Rush (1849-1852) with exception of a few areas where the original trail still remains in relatively pristine condition and needs to be preserved. The condition of the road ranges from maintained county roads to un-maintained 4WD trails. This is 200 miles of a guided 4-wheel drive tour of the 1849 wagon route used by thousands of emigrants from Imlay, Nevada to Surprise Valley, California. Superb desert and mountain scenery with many historical points of interest, led by experienced guides. All quality meals and basic camping facilities are provided. Limited to 25 vehicles. The Emigrants wrote in their diaries such a good description of this trip that we can identify all of the key points of interest in the history of the route. It is not a difficult trip but there are places where 4WD will be required or where trail committee instructions must be followed. Camping the first night will be on private property. The second night will be at Stevens Camp where basic facilities are located, such as a toilet, non-potable water and possibly hot showers. You will need a tent, chairs and sleeping bags. The price is $275* for adults and $150* for children age 7 to 14. Children under 7 are free. Price includes all meals from breakfast Saturday through lunch on Monday. Bring your own snacks, refreshments and plenty of drinking water. A travel guide with a map will be provided for each vehicle so that you may keep track of your progress and learn what the emigrants wrote down about their harrowing experiences. On Friday evening, there is an introductory get together and meeting. You will receive a packet with more information once you register.

Nevada Four Wheel Drive Association and Local 4×4 Clubs Clean Up El Dorado Canyon!

In this 25-minutes, see how much these volunteer four-wheelers value their trails and public lands. The clean-up began at 8 a.m. with a double-dumpster stop conclusion nearly twelve hours later! Two rusted motor vehicles and an abandoned projection screen television were among trash and human debris that filled a half-dozen trailers and pickup beds! El Dorado Canyon’s pristine, spring-fed creek feeds cottonwoods and other habitat at this high desert destination. Join the call to action!

Dog Valley Project – June 14th

Volunteers Needed – Saturday June 14th Time once again for the 4×4 community to do even more good. This time, it’s the Dog Valley Meadow Barricade Project. Humboldt Toiyabe National Forest, Hills Angels, Nevada 4 Wheel Drive Association, and many others are working together to install 1500 feet of barricade along the sensitive areas on the Dog Valley meadow forest service road. This is similar to the Dutch Louie Flat, Big Meadow, Dog Valley-Summit One barricades. NV Energy has donated the power poles needed as well as many of the special tools, the forest service has paid for delivery and all the other materials needed. N4WDA has chipped in for food (still seeking more donations) and Hills Angels will be doing the cooking and site coordination. PLEASE POST UP on if you are coming so we have some idea of crew sizes and food requirements. From Verdi take Bridge Street to Dog Valley Grade, stay right at the summit and go down the hill into Dog Valley. At the bottom of the grade take the first right and go about a quarter of a mile. Come on out and make a difference!
