Corral Canyon

Hi Everyone,
I am going to Corral Canyon on Saturday, and was wondering if anyone else wants to go. I plan on running Gun Slinger and Bronco Flats since I've never been on those trails before. If you are interested we will meet at Four Corners at 10:00 am. Bring lunch. Everyone should have a Forest Adventure Pass if you plan on parking. I will be on CB ch 10.
Ken

I should be up there playin around on either the jeep or the mountain bike. I was either going to run Pancake rock with some justruns guys, but I also want to go mountain biking. So I will be in the orange TJ with a mountian bike on the cage.

I've never ran bronco flats I've ran bronco peak is that the same trail?

No, there are three different (Bronco) trails. Bronco peak (#3), Bronco Peak Connector (#3a), and Bronco Flats (#5). Bronco Flats and Gun Slinger have not been open sence the 03 fires. There is a lot of trails that havn't been open in over 4 years.

Gunslinger is rated easy to moderate trail and bronco flats is a black diamond trail. I have run bolth of them in my 87 toy. But I will say I had some close calls on Bronco flats due to my crappy IFS.

Bypasses

Are there any bypasses on the tough parts or is it a full commitment?

Rubi JK 2007 don't want rock damage yet. Thanks for the info Peanut. Are you going?

Probably a long way form Corona. Take I-8 East from San Diego about 30miles to Buckman Springs rd. Go South about 5 miles to Corral Canyon rd. and go West about 2 miles to Four Corners. Check MapQuest for Corral Canyon OHV Area.

'07 Rubi should have lockers. I am in an open '71 cj-5 so even if I struggle you should be fine. We will take our time on any tough spots and make sure there is no damage

Forest Adventure Pass

I do not have this. Is there somewhere I can pick one up on the way or near the trail head?

Theres only two spots I would say that are realy challenging on either trail with posible rock damage. One of them I'm sure with the wheel base of a jeep and solid axles you would be fine. The other there is severl different lines to take. I'm sure you could find one that works.
I would also suggest running gunslinger into bronco flats then down to the main road if anyone shows up with out lockers. Thats the way I ran them. I can say for sure my 87 toy wont make it up bronco flats with out at least one locker.
Normaly I end up running those trails by myself since most of my buddys dont have capable riggs, so maybe I will come up.

The Forrest adventure pass is only required if your vehicle is going to be parked while your not in it for long periods of time. Such as tow rigg. Or a camper. If you just stop for lunch they shouldnt give you any problems.

There were four of us and two passengers on this run. A cj-5, jk, h3 and a toy. There were a couple of tight spots that caused broken wheel caps and wheel scraps on the jk and h3. One spot we had to break out the winch. We ran Gun Slinger, Bronco Flats, and Sidewinder. We all had a great time Thanks to all that came.

I had lots of fun. And thank you for leading the way.
I would say sidewinder was the best.

Cool Corral Canyon

Great run. I agree with Peanut, Gunslinger was the best run.

I was able to slavage the center cap on the jk its on the spare.

The Jeep will be headed to the shop today to get that boot replaced. It was tucked way up underneth I don't think anything ripped it? Once I cut off the the hanging chad with my knife the noise went away? See what the dealer sayes. We got back at half time and watched the rest of the Patriots game.

54 Thank you for sharing your knowledge of those trails and your pleasent demenor. You were a very patient to me and the newbe. The Hummer did pretty good considering it is pretty much stock.

He was pretty shook up and told me those are the hardest trails he wants to go on. So I guess 4-6 is his limit for now. I know him he will be back for another adrenaline fix soon.

When eve you guys feel like heading north we can head over to Cleghorn or Johnson Valley let me know.

I am having some issues getting the video on the cpu. I will try the still in the next day or so. I will send you a link when I get this done.

Until next time amigos.
