2009-02-21 – MJR Meet ‘n’ Greet – Bullfrog Trail Johnson Valley

MJR had yet another meet & greet, this time instead of it being at Bass Pro Shops, it was held at Maxwell’s Burgers Fresh Salads & Subs. Quite a few people showed up, which then broke into two groups. Half the group went on some local valley trails and ended up helping a stuck land-rover.

I went with the group that headed out to Johnson Valley to run Bullfrog trail.

First up was Chicken Rock, which is a quick little warm up to test green wheelers’ nerves. Not difficult once you’re on the rock, but getting from the dirt to the rock proved slightly difficult for a couple in our group. From there, you head around the corner and start the actual bullfrog trail.

On the trial there were quite a few obstacles that look pretty cool in pictures but aren’t terribly difficult with any kind of ground clearance, especially if you can flex like a beast. This is actually the exact opposite of most trails which look easy in pictures and are much harder and intimidating in person. Here’s a bunch of shots from the rest of the day.
