We will be running Elvis, Jack Handle and Box Canyon on Saturday. Elvis has big ledges with extreme options. Follow a sandy wash through a series of difficult rock obstacles. Most of the obstacles have bypasses; however, by our standards, they should still be considered difficult, compared to the hardest lines, which are extreme.
This trail is typically run with Jack Handle, trail #59, followed by Box Canyon, trail #56, to exit the area. Narrow rocky lanes with tight turns and tall sharp ledges. And that’s just the bypasses. The hardest lines will challenge the most aggressive rock buggies.
Jack Handle -Squeeze through very narrow side canyon. Trail follows extremely narrow rocky canyon and is strictly hardcore. Main feature is a narrow opening just after Waypoint 04. A Hi-Lift jack mounted standing up on rear bumper is likely to get caught on rocks as you pass through, thus the name of the trail. Surprisingly, the second half of the loop is very scenic as you return along a high, narrow ridge. An extreme test of articulation. Wide, oversized vehicles will have trouble with this one. Don’t do this trail alone.
Sunday will be running Ajax and Box Canyon. This trail gets its name from an optional obstacle that was once attempted by Jeeps but is now strictly for rock buggies; even they aren’t guaranteed to complete it. To get through the rest of the trail unscathed, you will need a good spotter and a very capable rig.
Obstacles with no bypasses mixed with smooth washes. Longer vehicles will have trouble with one tight turn at the beginning. Last section of trail follows a narrow ridgeline and has deep washouts.
