Come on out to this beautiful area featuring amazing sunrises and sunsets. The valley is ablaze with color.
This event is a fundraiser for Cal4Wheel. All funds raised go to support the daily operations of the association, as well as fund our natural resource consultants to help with conservation projects and the education of the public in the proper use of our beautiful outdoors and to keep our land open for all to enjoy.
There will be a good variety of runs to choose from, ranging from scenic, historic to hardcore four-wheeling and everything in between. There will be a run board listing all the runs and their descriptions in base camp.
You make the decision as to which run to go on. The Gear Grinders from Ridgecrest are in charge of the runs and their members can help you choose the run that’s right for you and your vehicle.
We will have a raffle on Saturday night. Be sure to purchase your raffle tickets so you won’t miss out on some great prizes – BFG tires or a Warn winch and so much more.
Come on out and enjoy this beautiful area, see the amazing stars and visit with friends and meet new ones. We may even get a show from the jets that fly around the mountains. They certainly are a sight to behold.
The fire restrictions for the Ridgecrest BLM/ Panamint area have been changed and are now in stage 1. You may use camp stoves and barbecues. You may have a campfire with a valid campfire permit. Check the BLM website to obtain your campfire permit, or use the link below.
Please use precautions with your campfire: have some buckets of water available; clear a 5-foot perimeter around your campfire; be sure the fire is completely out before leaving it.
