High Desert 4 Wheelers take a run to Cougar Buttes

The High Desert 4 Wheelers did a club run to Cougar Buttes after Panamint Valley Days was all said and done.  My Toyota was down and waiting for parts so I took my side-by-side...boo, boo...I know, I know, punk side-by-side drivers, but my rig is not the typical UTV you might see on the trails.  Low range, massive skids, lockers, 35's...it's a beast on the rocks.  We had a couple of less-experienced rock crawlers with us and this is a great area to help people learn about their rig's capabilities.  No issues on the trail, great group of guys, and good weather.  It was a great day to be out wheelin.

Lassen-Applegate Emigrant Trail Ride

16 JulJul

TA, 6000 E Frontage Rd, Mill City, NV 89418, USA

In search of the Forty-Niners – This is a guided 4-wheel drive tour of the 1849 wagon route used by thousands of emigrants from Gerlach, Nevada to Surprise Valley, California. Superb desert and mountain scenery with many historical points of interest, led by experienced guides. All quality meals and basic camping facilities are provided. Limited to 25 vehicles.

This is a 4WD trip for high clearance 4WD vehicles only. The route used will follow the same trail heavily used during the Gold Rush (1849-1852) with exception of a few areas where the original trail still remains in relatively pristine condition and needs to be preserved. The condition of the road ranges from maintained county roads to un-maintained 4WD trails.

The Emigrants wrote in their diaries such a good description of this trip that we can identify all of the key points of interest in the history of the route. It is not a difficult trip but there are places where 4WD will be required or where trail committee instructions must be followed.

The price is $275* for adults and $150* for children age 7 to 14. Children under 7 are free.  Bring your own tent, chairs, sleeping bags, snacks, refreshments and plenty of drinking water. A travel guide with a map will be provided for each vehicle so that you may keep track of your progress and learn what the emigrants wrote down about their harrowing experiences.
