The Gorge

Description

The Gorge has been the traditional location of our Season Opener, and this year is no different. The trail runs along a power line offering a variety of rocky obstacles to play on with the option of bypassing obstacles you don’t feel you, or your vehicle, are quite ready for. As the Season Opener usually attracts a large number of vehicles, please come prepared for a slow pace, with plenty of opportunity to socialize while watching your peers tackle the various obstacles. It’s a great opportunity to get to know your fellow members and take some great photos!

Please note that as of now, trail conditions appear to be favorable, however we will be reassessing conditions continually until the event. Should ground conditions warrant it, we may postpone the event to avoid damaging the trails. Please keep an eye on the events calendar and watch for notices.
