May 2017 | Fort Piute on the Mojave Road, in San Bernardino County, CA
More information coming soon
The Mojave Road is a historic route across the Mojave Desert first used by Native Americans to travel between the Colorado River and the coast. Spanish explorers, Mexican traders, and American settlers have used the route. Today, the 121-mile long 4-wheel drive trail across the Mojave Desert is on the “bucket list” of every overland adventurer.
C4WDA obtained a Special Use Permit from the National Park Service to lead a run over a portion* of the Mojave Road on May 25 & 26, 2016. This run was not part of the annual C4WDA Hi Desert Round-Up, but was timed to allow participants to easily transition to the Hi Desert Round-Up. In addition to traveling the portion of the Mojave Road that traverses the Mojave National Preserve, we will take side trips to Hole-in-the-Wall, Kelso Depot, and Lava Tubes. Here are details:
* Due to limitations of the Special Use Permit for this run, this run will start at mile 21 of the Mojave Road (near Fort Piute) and end at mile 104 of the Mojave Road (at the Razor OHV area). Participants may travel the first 21 miles and/or the last 17 miles of the Mojave Road on their own, but such travel will not be part of this C4WDA led run.

Trail Leaders have the FINAL say regarding their runs.
Times are subject to change!!! Check on-site boards for any changes.
On Saturday morning it's up and at 'em. This year we might have eight trails running through the desert area:
On Sunday morning we have two trails running through the desert area:
There will be a minimum of two teams. Communication is key to this exercise. Ham Radio is preferred but not required, CB or FRS radio can also be used. One GPS unit per team is required each member is encouraged to have a GPS but not required.
The teams will work through a series of objectives to capture the Tactical Objective before the other team. The first team to capture the objective will win a prize.
The maximum number of vehicles for this run is 14, there can be more than one person per vehicle. That is two teams with a max number of vehicles per team of 6 and two vehicles that function as over-watch for each team. To make this work I would need a min of 4 vehicles to sign up.
This will be open to all vehicles SUV's will be able to participate, there will be very mild four- wheeling involved.
