*** Previous Run*** February "Overnight" Group Run - Hogsback Rd, Tehema Wildlife Area
This months run will be an overnight "Overlanding" Run. This is a great intermediate level run to Fisher Campground via Hogsback Rd. Hogsback Rd starts out as a gravel road and then increases in difficulty with larger ruts, rocks and ledges in the road. There are some sections of the trail that are "crawling" speed. A stock Tacoma/4Runner will be able to make this run. Fisher Campground is a beautiful campground nestled down by Antelope Creek. It does not have any facilities so everything will need to be packed in/packed out. There are spots for Roof Top Tents and Ground Tents.

2/18/2023 9am to 2/19/2023 6pm
We will meet at Overlanders H.Q. Store at 9am Saturday Morning. We will leave the store at 9:30am and head south on I-5 to Red Bluff. We will STOP AND RE-GROUP in RED BLUFF at the SPEEDWAY GAS STATION 782 Antelope Blvd, Red Bluff, CA 96080 next to DUTCH BROS.
If you are coming from the SOUTH (Sacramento, Chico, etc.) and don't want to drive to Redding, meet at the SPEEDWAY GAS STATION 782 Antelope Blvd, Red Bluff, CA 96080 next to DUTCH BROS at 10:00am on 2/18/2023.
We will Depart from the SPEEDWAY GAS STATION at 10:30am.
From there we will head up Hogsback Mtn. Once we hit gravel road we will stop to air down. We will make a planned stop for lunch around 12:30 before continuing on to the camp site at Fisher Campground. Fisher campground is just below 1,400 ft elevation so no snow is expected but it will be cold. Bring your favorite dinner to cook and we will enjoy sitting around a fire!
Sunday morning we will wake up, have breakfast, break camp and continue on the rest of Hogsback Rd. (Roughly 9 Miles). Sunday we expect to be back into Red Bluff around 2:00-3:00pm.
While most of the trial is pretty wide open there is always the possibility of scratches from brush/trees.
We are family oriented and welcoming to all, therefore we are not a rowdy crowd. We do not tolerate drinking and driving, but do not mind if you have a few beverages once at camp.
What you need to bring:
Your own food, water, vehicle, camping gear for 2 days. (Ground tent is just fine)
Camping will be at a "dry" campsite, that means you need to pack in/out all of your own water and toilet waste. There will be pit bathrooms. Please plan accordingly.
Chainsaws are not required, but welcomed as sometimes we come across down trees.
-High Clearance 4wd/AWD
-Vehicle Recovery Points
-"Off-Road & Overlanding Camp" Trailers are welcome
