2011 PNW4WDA Trail Jamboree - Day 4 & 5 of 5
 
Pacific Northwest 4 Wheel Drive Association's 2011 Trail Jamboree - Day 4 & 5 of 5
Report and photos by Clay Graham / Eastern Washington Adventures

On Day 4 (Saturday July 9th, 2011) I met up with the Desert Rats for their hosted 4x4 run to Little Rattlesnake.
They set me up with Mike to ride in his TJ.

Around 8 AM we headed out. We took the FS1500 road over to FS1503 and then up FS1501 to the Little Rattlesnake Trail Head. We ran the Little Rattlesnake trail with no real problems. There were a few dents since this is a very tight trail.

Once everyone was up at the end of the Little Rattlesnake Trail, we drove on up to Timberwolf Mountain. There was to much snow to drive to the top so some of us took a hike up there. Some of the younger people had fun sliding down the deep snow drifts. At the top we took a few pictures and headed back down to the rigs.

Next we headed back to Jim Sprick Park to enjoy the rest of the day there.

Safety/Education Director Rob Stafford had a RTI Ramp and rigs lined up to use it.

Saturday night' dinner was bought to you by 4 Wheel Parts.

Marty Tilford gave out prizes for his Trail Trash Contest.

Raffle Board prizes were given out to the lucky ticket holders.

The 50/50 raffle winning ticket was drawn.

That night there was dancing and a bonfire.


On Day 5 (Sunday July 10th, 2011) everyone started packing up to go home. It was sad to see the event come to an end.

Wandering Willys served Sunday breakfast.

This was a great event that I really enjoyed. I am looking forward to the next PNW4WDA Trail Jamboree.

Nice pics, Thanks for sharing...I understand the re-routing & bridges of this trail, which used to be one of my favorite & most challenging.

I just don't understand why the sidehills were dug out & notched into the hillside?

This trail is one of the few that fit the FS national trail standards. Where the trail is cut into the hill the sidehill exceeded standards. When you cut into a hill you must remove enough material so that the vehicle is completely on bearing soil. Vehicles are not allowed to drive over fill from a cut bank. The amount of cut is also one of the reasons for the width restriction.

There was a watchful eye while this trail was relocated and built.
