Sierrafest 13

have you guys figured out a date for sierrafest?

I'd like to make the run up again and I'm trying to plan a rubicon run for the same time.

Re: Sierrafest 13

Ya id probably be out there too. Is Deer valley open now?

So DV, SR, barney riley, corral hollow?

Any Ideas on adding Boards crossing and Niagara rim trail to the mix. like DV , SR, NR, and Boards?

Boards is really easy but pretty scenic, and really close, and Niagara rim you would probably want to move camp over there for that day.

Niagara rim is just to far to make it realistic. To the best of my knowledge the 42 trail closure is still in effect, this includes Deer Valley.

I was under the impression that that was just the section from the first water crossing though the meadows.

that was like that when we went, we just ran the first section of the trail which I was told was more challenging than any parts that were closed.

I thought slickrock was more fun anyway

You are right, I should clarify that the southern portion of the trail is still open.

camp at deer valley & day trip to slickrock.
that gets us the best camping location for tow rigs, etc.

Re: Sierrafest 13

I'm really hoping to make it this year. I got screwed at the last minute with work last year, but I really want to make the trip.

Re: Sierrafest 13

I would like to see a Rubicon part of the event like we did in 2011. Makes for a marathon week of wheeling but it is worth it.
