I know peters mill/taskers gap both allow dogs and the trails in GWNF do as well. Not sure about the "4x4 parks"

Jeep Wave Welcome from sterling.


There is a "new to jeeping run" a lot of folks are going on tomorrow easy trails but great views, if your rig is built there are, I believe, two rausch runs coming up as well as a pots mountain run.

I saw that run but couldn't make it.  My jeep is SOA with a locker in the front and a winch, sitting on 33s so it's fairly capable.  Not sure for around here but definitely got around the high desert stuff of SOCAL.  I was wondering if dogs are allowed on the trail runs.  My ACD loves riding shotgun if she can or just running alongside.  If anyone has info about that let me know.
I haven't been to a place yet that doesn't allow dogs, but I've only wheeled the cove, rausch, uwharrie, everything in GWNF, Harlan KY, and Windrock TN.  Let me know if you find one that says no.

Ignore Jerbear's snark. Every trail allows dogs, but I'd recommend keeping them in the Jeep as some of the areas near us (rausch, cove) can get pretty busy and you wouldn't want your pupper to get run over

I came in from SoCal too.  Welcome to the world of polished granite, mud and logs.  Ran trails east of San Diego and North from Lawrence Welk through Big Bear, Hammers and up to the Rubicon.

You wont find the good traction of sandstone or volcanic rock here.  The Vistas suck too.  You will need to learn some new skills for working logs and controlling wheel speed so you dont break shafts after clearing the mud from your tires and finding traction a foot later. Snow and ice wheeling in the winter add a whole new dimension to it.  Yes it snowed in the Pannamint Valley but it wasnt 3 feet deep and ten below at night.

Your big rock skills from the west coast will be put to the test on Rausch Creek Reds with adjustment for slick conditions. 

Welcome to NVJA.  I drove a silly looking XJ on 35's and look forward to swapping trail stories from the best of the west.

Just noticed the picture.  Looks like your running down the  Odessa - Doran Loop.  Did you get the gate keeper going up?

That's good to hear that this will be a different style.  I did like the traction out there but always fun to take on a new challenge.  My experience isn't quite as extensive as yours but did have some fun on some trails out there in the west.  Way back even before California I ran around up in Alaska but not with a jeep had an old 1975 Dodge on some 37s that took care of business.  Look forward to hitting the trails out here, seems like an awesome group on here.

Welcome!  Cool picture!  And yes, your dog is welcome on trail rides as long as they are leashed for most.
