Member Run – Calabogie Line Dusk Run @ The Bogie General Store

Calabogie Line at Night

Description

The Calabogie Line is a 4.5km stretch of power line that roughly runs parallel to Calabogie road. The entrance is just north of where the power line intersects the road and heads north-north-east from there, exiting onto Ferguson Lake road. The trail has experienced relatively light use, although it is commonly used by dirt bikes.

The start time for this event is not a typo. The event will begin in the evening, allowing members to do a Saturday double-header and put those trail lights to good use.

Member Run – Bear Skulls
Aug 22 all-day

Description

Bear Skulls is a relatively new trail to the EOTB, having been opened by the club over the last few seasons. The trail 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.

Meeting Location: Bogie General Store (formerly Munford’s) in Calabogie @ 10:00am
