Bullfrog

January 29th 2011

Description

Day run to Cougar Butte in Lucerne Valley.

We will do Chicken Rock, Bullfrog and Cakewalk plus a few extra sections.  Lots of rocks to go up, down and/or around.  You can make it as easy or tough as you want.  Plenty of challenging obstacles.

The picture at the top of our website is from Bullfrog last year after it stopped raining!

We will leave from 7-Eleven at 0800.  The 7-eleven is the last gas or you can gas up anywhere alone Bear Valley Rd before the 7-Eleven.

Tow vehicles can be left at or near the Chicken Rock trailhead (N34 29.060 W116 49.148).  We should be at the trailhead between 0830 and 0900
