Night run Trail 404

Steve, Jon and myself decided to do a little night run down a local trail. Its the tighest trail I know of. If you have a full size you can't fit in the notches. Even steves 4runner with 35's is rubbing on the side walls as he goes through. It was definitely good times, but the one big rock I always have a tough time getting around almost tried to take my door out! How dare it!

Thats the rock. It gave my sliders a work out last time. I added some bracing because of this spot.

My turn,

Steve is looking at the rock well under an inch from my truck. Trying to hold my truck away from it! doh!

just made it!
Jon's turn. Ernie was not pleased.

Without the factory fender flares that I have he was able to pivot on his tire right on the rock. PHEW!

Just some scenery.

I didn't get any pictures of the skinny notch this time. Its too tight to get out of ones truck while in it! Search for other runs of trail 404 on my blog to see more of the TIGHT pics.

Aftermath: Four Peaks Pickup 09

Post Pickup

Where do I begin. It was a truly epic day. With what we thought was going to be a rainy day I hoped for a turn out similar to last year at BEST.
Instead we had twice the volunteers and three times the trash cleaned up. A preliminary count shows 500 People came and over 20 Tons of trash were picked up.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! You the volunteer are all that really matters. I love you!

You made this a truly great day. You showed folks that there are a LARGE majority of responsible outdoor enthusiasts that care.

Descending Trail 100,

I took a ride down through the dreamy draw, Phoenix Mountain Preserve park. The main trail in the area is Trail 100 so I tend to call the area that. The actual trail 100 is pretty flat. This is a video of a side trail that leads from a peak next to Squaw/Piestewa Peak all the way down to the parking lot without having to go up hill. Its several miles of fun.
From the top, to the car. This is my home trail.
