    October 6-7, 2018 | Oregon | Cline Buttes & Rim Butte

    When: October 6, 2018
    Meeting Time: 11 am
    Meeting Place: North Barr Trailhead, Cline Buttes OHV Park, (44.288193, -121.336060 apprx)

    When: October 7, 2018
    Meeting Time: 10:30 am
    Meeting Place: Lodgepole Staging area, Rim Butte OHV Park (43.63901, -121.14020 apprx)

    Permits Required: Oregon ATV Sticker
    Communication: HAM radio (446.460) unless we must roll back
    Vehicle requirements:
    • Suggested 35' tires or greater, front/rear lockers and a winch.
    • Skid plates and armor highly recommended.
    • A FULL SIZE SPARE!!! preferably one that matches your other tires!! Means to change a flat tire, even if that is the stock bottle jack and tire iron (make sure your tire iron fits)
    • TOW POINTS FRONT AND REAR!!!, and knowledge of where they are.


    Maps/Resources:


    Rim Butte is a new area created to challenge those that are bored with Crushers. lol It's exclusively Black/Most Difficult and a new even harder Red/Extreme. The plan is to go check it out. Find some challenging trails that we can handle without too high a risk of body damage. Maybe see some buggies do some crazy stuff. We'll hit Cline Buttes harder areas as a warm up since it's on the way. Camp at one of the two parks. Plans are WIP to be narrowed down by those that decide to join.

    October 6 plan:
    • Meet up at 11am so some people can leave Portland are a rational time.
    • Trail plan: Try and hit as much of 16, 14, 17, and 34 as time will permit.
    • Maybe something like 37 -> 49 -> 27 -> 16 -> 14 -> 17 -> 32 -> 27 -> 34 ->37?
    • Camp: Camping at the Cline Butte staging area.

    October 7 Plan:
    • Setup at Lodgepole Staging area @ 10:30a (43.63901, -121.14020 apprx)
    • I hear the 41/44/45 should be fun and doable with only 35s.


    Who's Coming:
    • Vinnie (LJ on 35s w/ body armor)
    • Rodney (LJ on 35s w/ body armor)
    • Juan (TJ on 35s)
    • Brad
    • Keith & Alex (TJ on 35's w/ body armor)
    • Jim Williams (Toyota truggy)
    • The Dave is back!! (JK on 35's)
    • Biff (Wagoneer on 35s) - Rim Butte only

    Sweet. Definitely appreciate any insight you have about any of the trails. I expect to do some walking and some running. You coming to Cline Butte too?

    Let's say meet up at 11am.

    Hey Vinnie, put me and my son Alex (6 yrs old) down as a strong maybe for the Oct 6-7 trip. We would most likely bring our truck camper and trailer the jeep, does that work with the plans for wheeling and camping? I'll try to confirm we can make it in the next few days.

    @Keith, sure, that works. We don't really have a camping plan yet, but while I don't know how suitable Rim Butte is for camping, Cline Butte's staging area is like a big camp ground. My guess is that we will camp there, and I usually see trailers and RVs etc there. There's enough room. I don't think we'll be camping on trail, for example.

    You can camp at Lodgepole. More remote than Cline.
