Re: Fall Fling Official Trail List/Registration Info

If there is time to get out of the vehicles for a bit the Joint Trail might make a good diversion.

It was. I can see the front piece of the right rear bushwacker is gone. It was lost in the river.

Just in case you haven't seen it before.

I don't trust the NPS.
It was fairly easy during Safari this year. They kept talking about some section that other than a tight turn was basic. I'm sure a few sections got interesting after the storms which would have been fun but I too have my fears that the NPS will overcompensate. I hate what happened to Gemini Bridges.

Re: Fall Fling Official Trail List/Registration Info

Trail writeups and GPS tracks for many of the scheduled trails can be found here:

http://www.naxja.org/forum/forumdisp...ysprune=&f=213

A lot of the photos are from previous Fall Flings. It would be nice if someone could add trails that we are missing, like Klondike Bluffs, La Sal Loop & Pritchett Canyon.

Thanks as always Alex. I'm surprised that I didn't look for those (Klondike/La Sal Loop) and send them to you already.

Please everyone check updates on my original post as I will be adding information as we go. Latest updates are that the NPS will allow us 15 vehicles on the Elephant Hill run and we are working to have a dinner/slideshow Friday night.
