The High Desert 4 Wheelers wanted to do a pre-Christmas weekend run but we were having a hard time deciding where to go. We finally settled on the Jack Rabbit trail out in Stoddard Valley. It is a Hi Desert Round-Up run that most of us have never been on since we are usually leading different runs or helping out with the articulation ramp during the event.
If you look up the Jack Rabbit trail online, you will find some videos and articles but that is not this trail. Online shows an easy beginner’s trail, but this Jack Rabbit is a rough and rugged, 35's, lockers, off-camber, loose, steep, hilly type trail. It follows a lot of the Achy Breaky trail with some fun off-shoots to tackle. We had a good group of rigs: all types of Jeeps, a couple buggies, and my SXS. We blasted through the trail quickly and some of us decided to go run Pumpkin Eater since we were in the area. Five of us made it all the way to the top and enjoyed the great view next to the Genright marker.
