The Cracks

Went wheelin with AZVJC guys at the Cracks. Wheeled with their big group on Sat. morning. Mainly to learn the different trails, never been there before. The rest of the weekend me and my friend Justin wheeled by ourselves because it's like a big traffic jam with the jeep club wanting to take pictures of "Everything". Overall, a fun weekend.

Damn it Josh, I was about 15-20 miles away from there, and never been there. Cool pics and area. I should have come by to show those "Jeep guys" how it's done...with less pictures too. Would have been sweet to do some more wheeling as if we didn't do enough.

Edit: HOLY SOON TO BE F-ED UP CHEVY LEAFS!

Saw TC. Did not meet him tho. Met Cliff, and rode out with him.
Snake pit is a little tight. I came thru it backwards and then climbed up the ledge instead of trying to pivot around that turn.

I'd say it looks like you have some more trimming to do to the bed!

...........Looks like a fun place to wheel.

See above:
My understanding of this area is that for those who wheel there often, they'd prefer to keep it's location less advertised. I'm sure they'd appreciate any specific directions to be pm'd between known members.

I can understand that. They have all of the trails marked with arrows, and stress that you stay on the trail. It's not a long trail, more like a maze of little trails that loop around.

Josh it's not about fellow wheelers rather the Greenies that patrol these forums. Posting up directions on an unrestricted board is a bad thing IMO.
As soon as those asshat find out about it it will be game over.

I didn't know it was private land, so it wouldn't be good for a TTORA run, my bad

Hey Mark, I don't think it's private land. It's just been mentioned that it isn't an all that well known about area to wheel and they would just like to keep the traffic down.

I heard either the camp site was on private land or the trails. I can't remember which.

Hey Josh, I didn't get to talk to you while we were up there but your rig worked pretty good....I was the only other Toy up there, white 2nd gen.



Nice pics. Your right they did take alot of pics of almost everything. And they even posted some pics of me on the VJC site....

The trails are on private property, some of the locals that were there with us know the owner. It is not reserved for certain peeps but we ask that you do follow the arrows and main trails. The camping area is STL.

Here's a pic of camp Saturday night when the rain was comin in.

That view was available from most of the trails up there...very cool place.

The "cracks" themselves are frickin incrdible and amazing. Josh and his buddy in the Willys had more guts than I gettin down inside them that far.
