Horeshoe Canyon - Night run
Horseshoe Trail is located a short drive behind Jerome. A fun trail that provides some enchanting views during the day, but at night it becomes quite more interesting to navigate with all the creepy crawlers out and about.

· Additional lighting on sides/rear of vehicle if available

Please keep in mind the task at hand, we will be going into a remote part of the desert in the dark. This presents a whole new set of challenges we are not used to on regular club trail runs, please make sure to be well rested so you can remain attentive at all times during this trail run. Also please consider the dangers involved if you are thinking about bringing kids, this may not be the right experience should we have to spend the night out there.
In the same vein, please be sure to consider the possibility of a breakdown and the consequences, we will need to remain together as a group for this trail run so be prepared to spend a night out there if we have to.
We will be recording the trail run for a Desert Rover video so let me know if you do not wish to be part of the video ahead of time. I have a few Desert Rover surprises planned for trail attendees you won't want to miss!
Trail Rating per Wells book - Difficult
The first part of the trail is scenic but uneventful. Conditions quickly become more interesting along the power line, especially one very steep hilly section that gives the trail it's difficult rating. Attendees should expect everything from shelf roads, washouts and deep ruts in a few sections.
Toughest spot is a short section of steep rocky hills near the end. Most of the trail is easy, handled by any stock Land Rover with proper off road tires and transfer case for the steep section.
