Designated spot to park tow rigs and trailers during the event. Located approximately 50 km south of Tumbler Ridge.
Available in Tumbler Ridge. From here, if you're driving your rig, 1 jerry can of diesel / 2-3 jerry cans of gas is recommended for the remainder of the trip. Opportunity to fuel up later in week if need be.
We think Tumbler Ridge has a grocery store. Somewhere. Normally, people buy groceries in nearby cities/towns such as Grande Prairie, Dawson Creek, or Fort St John, depending on where you're coming from.
OSOR's Trail Base Camp
Onboard 4x4 Shower.
An afternoon trip up the Murray River to the base of the beautiful Kinuseo falls will be planned, depending on interest and jet boat availability.
The Tumbler Ridge area is full of hiking trails and waterfalls just waiting to be explored.
Don't forget your camera!
Once upon a time dinosaurs thought this area was pretty cool too. Fortunately, they didn't believe in 'Treading Lightly' as their footprints can be still seen today in various locations.
The greater Tumbler Ridge area is yours to explore. Let us know if you want our recommendations!
This trail was adopted by the
Old School Off Road Club several years ago. Since then members have enjoyed it year round - via 4x4s in the warmer months and skidoos in the winter. In recent years the first 10 km of trail was upgraded when mining activities in the area required a better access road into their facilities. The remaining trail provides the occasional obstacle before terminating at the shores of Warner Lake.
Expect 2-3 relaxing days on the trail.
We will be staying at both the Tow Rig Base Camp and the Trail Base Camp while exploring this trail. We expect to stage out of the Trail Base Camp for 3 nights before returning back to Tow Rig Base Camp where we'll most likely stage out of for the remainder of CCC.
Back in the day, before the current pot-holed, gravel Forest Service Road up to Kinuseo Falls existed, there was a better way to get there.
This trail can be done in a single day or can be extended into to a two-day adventure.
It can be done in one direction or we can retrace our tracks back out. In any case, we'll be crossing fairly easy terrain. Well, mostly.
There is one possible tough water crossing to deal with if river levels are high. If the water is really high we will plan to send one sacrificial sprung over light beige BJ60 across first to break the Spring mud flow and act as a tow vehicle or anchor point to get others across.
Meet in Tumbler Ridge, B.C.
