About the Event
What: Day Run
Where: Hunter Lake to Verdi
Trailhead: Hunter Lake Trailhead
Trail Time: 5 hours
Trail Rating: 5 - Road surfaces are rutted, rocky, and sandy with steps not exceeding 14", with considerable slick rock surfaces. Water not exceeding 12" with some mud possible. However, with strong winter, the trail could be drastically different than the last time we took it. Good vehicle approach and departure angles are helpful. Above-average driving skills are desirable. 33-inch tires, with high clearance. Sliders and skid plates wouldn't be a bad idea, and traction aid devices (lockers, limited slips, A-TRAC) are recommended but not required.
What to Bring: Water, snacks and lunch, chairs, recovery gear, HAM radio, shade
Frequencies: 146.460 for trail coms / alt 146.500
This is a fun run through the local mountains. We normally stop at Hunter Lake (more of meadow these days) for lunch and do some exploring around the area before heading NW acorss the mountain range and down into Verdi. You should see forests, Sheep hearders, beautiful vistas, and more.
