  5. Continue for another 0.6 miles to staging area (just across stream).
    • Do not camp on the gravel bar after crossing the stream, this is where we stage the runs. You can drive across the gravel bar and there is an OHV campground just passed the gravel area. You must come back to the gravel bar for staging.

Note: The road has been rerouted to the staging area (please follow our signs). This is to go around private property and a new home site. PLEASE respect the landowner’s privacy, keeping the noise down, and do not trespass. A poor relationship with this landowner could jeopardize our use of this area.
