Sierra Trek 2017

Okay, it’s a little outside the normal set of trails I write about but what a trip!

In 2016 I won a free pass to Sierra Trek. I dragged my CJ-7 up and down the mountain and had a great time. So much so I signed up to do it again this year. It was the 50th anniversary of the Sierra Trek.

Three of us from the Lake Tahoe Hi-Lo’s got together and ran the Thursday run. We were off at 7am and got to camp a 6pm. A very slow day. No issues, just slow.

The Fordyce Trail has some interesting features, some of the trail looks like it’s been carved from the granite:

It is a 13 mile long trail that has some very hard spots. Our group bypassed Winch Hill One but most of the trail doesn’t have bypasses:

I think this was Winch Hill Two. My CJ-7 had this the easiest as the narrower, the better:

Winch Hill Three:

Friday and Saturday in camp there was a vendor show. I set up my booth and handed out maps and stickers. There were a lot of people there as there were SUV runs, historic runs and an ATV run. Something for everyone.

It was a great weekend as no one in our group broke anything!

If you have the rig, Sierra Trek is something I highly recommend.
