I was thinking of putting a trip together to the McGrew Trail/ Puncheon and Turnpike Road, but I haven't found a lot of info about it. I did find two sites "www.oohva.org and Jefferson state cruisers". If you have ran this trail or have any info on it please post and lets get a trip together.

Here's some stuff I found for you. The Deschutes County 4-Wheelers are a great resource for any trails in SW Oregon (Region 6). They also help with the infamous "Oregon Creek & Trail" event on Father's Day weekend in June as do the Klamath Four Runners.
Darel and I are looking forward to seeing what you put together for your run...
My life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body... But rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming... WOW! What a Wild Ride!
i finally ran the "creek'n'trail" last year with my long time friend from roseburg. he has run it every year for at least a decade. after being invited so many times and not going, it was time. its an easy trail that anything open on 31's can do. there are some by passes that will challenge more capable rigs. i ran all the hard spots including the obstacles with a locked rig on 35's without trouble.
my friend litigator had invited along a couple oregon state representatives bruce hanna and tim fereeman who wheeled bruce's jk rubicon on the mcgrew.
the klamath county four runners, strawberry hill, extreme offroaders, umqua valley timber cruisers and the other?? region 6 clubs. put on a fantastic run with first rate food and live music.
we camped at obrian the first night at www.lonemountainrv.com/index.html turns out i know the people that own the rv park. the creek and trail have been usign this as a staging spot for years. there is tent camping and full hook ups with the trail head right up the road.
the forest rangers are "super pinched up" about jeepers having ANY mud or sand ect ect on their rigs going into the are because of "root rot". when "creek'n'trail" ran the mcgrew they closed the trail to everyone els and also inspected every one of our rigs and sent some people back to clean their vehicles. www.ufei.org/files/pubs/Redwoods.pdf

Wyldman: The Cowbell... If you are a club member and you're on one of our wheelin' trips. If you get stuck on an obstacle and have to be pulled out by your winch or someone elses winch/strap. You earn the Cowbell.

poorboy: Wyldman, I got to see the passing of the bell at the meeting and learned quite a bit about the tradition.
