This is an awesome event that is geared towards hardcore rock crawling, but they have organized runs for every driver/vehicle level from daisy-sniffers to buggy trails. There is a big potluck dinner and raffle held at camp as well food and off road vendors on site. This is a fun, laid back event that is worth making the trip.
The Las Cruces Four Wheel Drive Club has worked hard to develop the trail system in Caballo and works closely with the BLM and other government agencies to protect land access and keep trails open. The club has spent a lot of time and money in legal battles keeping trails open, and they need all the support they can get.
