Mark is keeping an eye on early-season road and trail closures. This may cause an abrupt cancelation, so keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates as the date approaches. We are entering Deer Valley from the north. This means that the gatekeeper comes first. We have had members snap ring gears on this one, so wheel at your own risk and avoid shock-loading your drivetrain. Several of the club members attending are old hat at this trail and will guide you through the rough spots. We will exit on Hwy 4 and head home via Hwy 395 North. Some of us may stop somewhere on our way home for dinner. All are welcome.
