Chapter run to Frank Raines OHV April 8th

Well March is upon us and it will soon be time for the Sierra Chapter's second annual run to Frank Raines OHV park. Unfortunately weather and other conditions will cause this park to close with little or no notice. As of right now the park will be open for camping and off-roading. Last year we had a great turnout for this run. Hopefully we will have another great day. There will be a pot luck style BBQ again so please post up with anything you are bringing.


FRANK RAINES PARK INFO

LOCATION: 17 miles west of Patterson

Entry Fee: $5 self registration

From HWY I-5 take the Patterson off ramp and proceed west on Diablo Grande Parkway to Del Puerto Canyon Road (3/4 mile). Turn right and proceed 17 miles up the canyon to Frank Raines Regional Park.

The park is 860 acres of trails, hill climbs, and various other challenges. The area is mostly steep terrain. Flush toilet restrooms, full hook-up developed camping, and a full kitchen recreation hall is available. Day use is sunrise to sunset.
Further information is available by calling our toll free number (866) 648-7275 or the main Parks office at (209) 525-6750.

We will be having lunch once again at the park about 1/2 mile away from the OHV area. There is a small playground for the kids and a nice grassy area to relax and eat lunch.

This run is open to everyone. Members and non-members, and all types of vehicles too. Not just XJ's.
All skill levels of driver and even stock vehicles can have a good time too. I will host an easy run for those interested in a little sight seeing around the park. Most everyone else will be playing on the rocks.

Some pics from last year.

Re: Chapter run to Frank Raines OHV April 8th

Our group went to FR yesterday, and it seems thy've opened up a bit more acreage. Doesn't mean much to us, but for the dirt bikes there's a bit more to explore. The creek was fun as usual, and had a chance to try out the new bling:

With all the recent rain, I expected to see more water in the creek. Can't wait to get up there again.

We had thought the same thing. There was plenty of mud (as you can tell) and the huge pond that Geoff got stuck in is a very healthy size. The hill climbs are fun since the soil is a little loose, but the creek is by far where the action's at.
