Trail Ride

I procrastinated way too long and finally got signed up for Hole in the rock. Last one available 😳. What’s the most technical area of this run?

Hi Leona, I just saw this post of yours. I think we discussed it on Facebook too, but I'll answer here. It's a route that Josh Miner and I have run quite a few times, he's done it more than I. At the start of the actual trail, there is a big rocky outcropping with a hole through it! Cool to check it out, and a great place to air down and shift into low range. We've had quite a few stock and near-stock rigs complete the route without problem.

 

I noted two areas that are a bit challenging:

 

1. The very steep and loose section which starts almost immediately after departing the trailhead. This is why it's good to air down and get into low range at the trailhead, before venturing onto the trail.

 

2. There's a tight section in the forest, requiring some maneuvering to get through. Two trees in particular are quite close together, and make it difficult to get a "full size" rig through. We have seen late model Tacoma pickups ease through just fine. Heck, I take it easy in my Wrangler!

 

Hope this helps you or someone else. Good question.

 

Guy

  • Hi all, We are on the heels of the NW Overland Rally in a few weeks. The Team and I have been super busy with Life and getting more content for all of you to take advantage of for the Summer. So, we have decided to not have a booth this year, but instead, isolate a section of the Rally camp area for NWOL members to circle the wagons and extend the community aspect at the Rally. With that, we will be hosting a members appreciation Happy Hour in the group camp area instead of the main vendor area. This gives us a chance to shake hands, chat and extend our thanks to you all for your continued support over the years. We will be creating an event sign up and if you plan to attend the Rally and camp in the designated NWOL camp area, please sign up!
  • Hey everyone, the 2019 rally is looking awesome! Lots of new presenters, fun vendors, more instructors and classes, and we've rented more field space to spread out even more. I forget to check all the forums, so post questions here and I will try to respond, but for a faster response just post any questions on our FaceBook page, it gives us an immediate notice when we get a question. Cheers Ray
