This thread is for planning out RME Monthly Trail Runs. Our goal is to plan out a group trail run 1-3 months in advance, so that those who are interested in attending can plan ahead. Once a location is decided we'll start a new thread for that Monthly Trip and go over the details.

In that thread we'll discuss what kind of trip it will be;

  • What kind of 4x4 trip; Challenging Rock Crawling, easy 2 track, overnight camping trip, etc.
  • Trail Rating and Location.
  • Share the meeting place and time.
  • Discuss minimum vehicle needs; tire size, body protection, lockers.
  • Talk about Group Size... some trail runs dictate a smaller group.
  • Any other information relevant to the trip.
Ideally we will get to a point where anyone that wanted to, could host a RME Monthly Trail Run. If you have a favorite trail that you're willing to lead a group on, please share and plan a RME Monthly Trail Run!

So, where would you guys like do a RME Monthly Trail Run? Let's talk about what trails we all want to run in the future and start making plans!

I would like to see some Monthly Trail Runs planned for a rock crawling trip to Price, a San Rafael Swell camping trip, Sand Hollow, Hanging Tree trail, etc.

And I think I'm going to put together a New Years Snow Run to Black Rock Canyon for January 1st... :D

Black Rock is an easy dirt road, until it gets all covered in deep snow--then it gets fun. :)

Thinking about the February RME Trail Run... I'd like to hit up the Little Sahara Dunes. It would be a daytrip, unless some wanted to camp out. Stock vehicles can play, but a lift, bigger tires and lockers will make it funner. Plan on airing down and have a way to air back up at the end of the day.

We did this last year, but I didn't make it due to last minute vehicle problems. Little Sahara is great in the winter, the sand is firm enough for some 4x4 play. We can do some vehicle recovery & extraction practice. I'd love to make this one an Annual RME Trip!

I'm thinking late Feb, on a Saturday... the 17th or 24th? What do you guys think?

Wasatch Cruisers are doing their annual dunes run in February. Perhaps coordinate with them?

What do you guys want to do for the March Trail Run? The Swell? Moab? St George? 2 day run?

I'm open for whatever. I plan on a lot of Moab trips this year for mountain biking, I've never been to St George so I don't know what it's like. I'm down for a 2 day trip. If there's a trail decided on that I need to beef up some parts for I'll have plenty of time.

We will see where we end up, I'd really like to do a weekend in Moab for one of these Monthly Trips... preferably when it's warmer.


+1 for the Swell
I'm game for the Swell! Lots of other options, too... could camp, visit Goblin Valley, hike slot canyons, visit old cabins and mining sites, etc.

The last week of March is EJS this year, so that's gonna make late March more difficult to plan for an RME trip.
