Member Run – Crag Lake Adopt-a-Trail @ Crag Lake Trail
May 26 all-day

In partnership with the OF4WD, the EOTB has adopted the Crag Lake trail. We will run the Crag Lake trail with a focus on clearing any debris or trees that may have come down over the winter months, trim branches encroaching on the trail and pick-up any garbage we find along the way.

While we will be running the trail, you can expect that progress will be slower than usual as we work to maintain the trail.

Meeting Place

Primary Meeting Location: The Bogie General Store at 9:00am

Given the length of the trail, we will forego the usual meeting spot in Bells Corners and meet at The Bogie General Store at the intersection of Highways 508 and 511.

Departure

We will be leaving no later than 9:30am.

Equipment

Since this is a trail maintenance event, we recommend you bring some work gloves and appropriate tools. We will likely require one or more chainsaws to clear downed trees, clippers and machetes to trim branches and we will bring garbage bags to collect any garbage we find along the way.

Requirements

Tow Points are mandatory for this trail. A lift and 33″ or larger tires is recommended for this trail.

Fuel

Please come to the meeting location fully fueled and ready to roll.

Non-Members

This is a members only run. If you wish to invite a non-member, please contact the trail leader to confirm that this event is suitable for your guest.

CB Radios

Please tune your CB to channel 4.  No CB?  Bring your FRS radio tuned to channel 4.

Reminders

Remember to bring a lunch, plenty of water, boots, cameras and your sense of adventure. It is also recommended that you carry a tow strap and some shackles as basic extraction equipment. Bug spray and sunscreen may also be wise.

Member Run – The Quinn @ The Quinn
Jun 1 all-day

Description

The Quinn is a club favourite and known as one of the most challenging trails in the region. The trail has seen a lot of wear and tear lately due to traffic. It is very rocky with rocky climbs and off-camber areas. In some areas even the bypasses can be challenging. There is a traditional lunch spot at top of the hill overlooking the lake. We usually go in the “back door” (north entrance) which makes the trail more challenging and exit via the “front door” (south entrance) over bridge.

Meeting Place

Meeting Location: The Bogie General Store at 9:30am

The EOTB has adopted a 2km stretch of Calabogie Road, northeast of The Bogie General Store. Twice a year, as part of the Adopt-a-Road program, the EOTB take a crew out to clean-up garbage along that 2km stretch. The process usually takes less than two hours, and we end the day with a short trail run, likely the Calabogie Line.

We will meet at 10:00am to begin the highway clean-up.

Primary Meeting Location: We will depart for the trail once the highway clean-up is completed

Member Run – Bear Skulls
Jun 16 all-day

Description

Bear Skulls gets its name from a pair of bear skulls we discovered perched on a rock next to the trail. While the trail has been negotiated by a stock 4-door JK, it is tight, and has several optional obstacles that will certainly challenge even the most modified vehicle. Among these optional obstacles there is a tight squeeze that has been known to tear soft tops, an arm-wrenching rock climb and the infamous waterfall, that still hasn’t been done without the use of a winch.

There is an extended section of the trail that features a steep climb, however the last several trips to the trail, we’ve had to skip it due to damage, or simply being late in the day.

Open Run – Darling Line @ Upper Darling Line
Jun 29 all-day

Description

The Upper Darling Line is an 8km stretch of road running NE from Highway 511 along a power line. The road itself is relatively flat and simple, with a few mandatory obstacles. While the road itself is mostly flat, we will be deviating from the road to play on various hills and rocks along the way to add interest to the run. Some of the obstacles can be quite challenging providing some fun for the more modified vehicles.

The trail has seen relatively little use over the past few years and requires some maintenance, mostly in the form of branch trimming, and we will endeavour to perform some of that maintenance on this run.
