National & International Participation!

Participants and their families from throughout the USA & Mexico have previously enjoyed the comfortable environment of the Caballo Lake Campground, situated near the Rio Grande River, about an hour north of Las Cruces, NM off of I-25N. You will also!

More Challenging Or Satisfying Trails Will Not Be Found!

With at least 14 trails of four general levels of difficulty offered on each day, drivers will be hard pressed to make their choices. Any choice made will be well made, whether it be Easy Chloride Canyon with its mining history, and ghost town Chloride up in the Gila Forest or the Extreme Short Cut which demands all the driver's skill to make it back to camp.

A Great Driver Challenge Certainly, And Families Are Invited!

The trails are indeed exceptional, whether for their driver intimidation for the Hard and Extreme Trails, or their New Mexico desert vistas and views, sites of geology or history found on the Easy and Moderate Trails. Families have been a part of this Event since the beginning, and have had fun every year! We believe you will as well!
