Rally Point Notes:
With the rain finally letting up I am planning a last minute trip to Frank Raines OHV park in Patterson this Sunday, March 31st.
It is a great place to do a shakedown of your rig, find its limits, and practice driving in 4-Lo. I plan on being there at 9 AM. I would be glad to jump in with anyone needing some off-roading advice. A lot of times, just watching other rigs lines and speed will give you the confidence to try it in yours. I am not planning to do anything crazy, just some basic trails.
This OHV park has well-marked trails that are graded like ski runs, Green=Novice, Blue=Intermediate, Black=Expert (it does have some steep hill climbs, which you can avoid). My 17-year-old son drove last time and he did great! The park will let you choose the level of off-roading your comfortable with.
Things to Rember
- $5 per car to enter.
- Bathrooms are available.
- Food is not available, nearest food is in Patterson, 17 miles away
- Bring water.
- Be prepared with tools and things your vehicle may need.
- If you have the ability to air down and up your tires, that will be a benefit to you, but not necessary. You do not even have to have off-road tires.
