Bulldog Canyon - FR 3554

 

Back

The Trail:

Bulldog Canyon requires a free Bulldog Canyon pass (information available here). This trail is very popular and relatively easy to run. It takes about 30 minutes to drive from the gate on Usery Pass Road to the intersection with FR 10 . There is very sandy with a small hill to navigate, some cracks, and in many places it resembles a bobsled course. Most stock 4x4s should be able to navigate it without any problems.

This isn't a good position to be in - going forward would not be good. Had to back up and try a different angle:

This is better:

Made it to the bottom - it looks like the wheel is going to come off!:
