Offroad trail begins. From the Chevron at 159 and 160 (Blue Diamond Rd.) it's 35.8 miles
Meet here. The offroad trail is 11.9 miles
One way mileage: 47.7 miles
Round trip mileage to west end of Las Vegas: 95.4 miles
From the west end of town, account for 1.5 hours of drive time. Since lunch will begin around noon, you should be passing the Chevron gas station at 159 and 160 (Blue Diamond Road) at or before 10:00 AM.
This trail is mostly maintained. 4WD will not be needed, but high clearance is recommended. There will be a shallow creek crossing. We've been there during a heavy rain and the deepest we've seen the creek crossing was 6 to 10 inches. Typically, expect 1 to 3 inches.
As with all VegasUnderworld events, there is no charge to attend or participate, but since this is a cookout/potluck everyone is expected to contribute supplies and food item(s). So there won't be any confusion, a potluck meal is where all parties bring a food dish to be added to a shared buffet.
There will be a fire provided for cooking and warming foods. A list of food and supplies needed/confirmed can be found down this page. This will be a noon lunch. Please, take that into consideration for cooking, reheating, and preparation times.
Everyone is invited to this cookout. If you'd like to bring guests, feel free as long as we get an accurate count. If you're bringing guests, please make sure they get a link to this page and read the entire page for details.
There will be no mine exploration involved. No exploration equipment will be needed. Because this will be an above ground social event, there will be no children or pet restrictions, but we do ask that you control both. This is not a shooting event.
