Two years ago the Moab expedition met Wednesday AM in Moab and got to the track Friday afternoon. Its about an 9 hour straight through drive to the track in Tooele. I'd think to meet the Utah group at Thursday night camp, so leave Wednesday at the latest

This years Moab to CruiserFest trip will likely have a Tuesday evening departure from Moab as to give us a half day extra time along the route... perhaps camping at the sand dunes north of Moab night one? We could easily mesh our logistics to meet the ID and CO groups somewhere south of the park a day earlier

Here are the ID and Moab groups meeting in Vernon last year

Registration is open for CruiserFest 2014. Don't miss out on the opportunity to be part of this amazing event, now in it's 6th year.

What is CruiserFest? Cruiserfest is a gathering of Land Cruiser aficionados at Miller Motorsports Park to celebrate all things Land Cruiser. Need I say more?

Activities include trail rides, camping, classes and seminars, tours of the Land Cruiser Heritage Museum (have you have seen a Toyota MegaCruiser in person ), art show, rock-crawling competition, awards, dinners and more!

Visit the CruiserFest website for more information and to register:

Some folks have been asking about trail ride descriptions... here you go:

Moab to Tooele Trail Ride
Trail Leader: Kurt Williams

The Moab excursion will depart from the Moab area on the evening of Tuesday, September 2. Our first night camp will have us in the scenic and remote San Rafael Swell. We will spend Wednesday exploring the Swell and making our way up to the high elevations of Skyline Drive camping amongst the pines that evening. We'll drop into Utah's West Desert on Thursday, camping near Utah's famous Little Sahara sand dunes. Our group will rendezvous with the City of Rocks group along the historic Pony Express Trail on Friday and caravan to CruiserFest at the Miller Motorsports Park, arriving Friday afternoon.


Denver, CO to Tooele Trail Ride
Trail Leader: Dan Markofsky

The Denver excursion will depart from the Denver area on Monday, September 1. We will start out on highway 285 and follow over Red Cone or Webster Pass (12,096’). We’ll climb Radical Hill to connect to Georgia Pass and descend into the Breckenridge area.

From Breckenridge we will travel south on pavement to take Mosquito Pass (13,186’) into Leadville. Head out of Leadville to Hagerman Pass (11,925’) where we will make camp for the night.

Leaving Hagerman Pass, we’ll head into the Roaring Fork Valley (by Aspen). The tour will head to the historic quarry town of Marble and the most photographed site in the State – the “Crystal Mill” (Sheep Mountain Power House, and located on the Lost Horse Mill site). We’ll drive Schofield Pass past the infamous “Devil’s Punchbowl” and onto beautiful Crested Butte. (Alternate route: Pearl or Taylor passes to Crested Butte and Schofield Pass to Marble). From Crested Butte we’ll make some highway miles (or head up to the Grand Mesa) to camp at Rabbit Valley, marking our entry to the desert lands bordering Utah.

We’ll begin the next day exploring part of the Kokopelli trail and take a detour to see rock art near the ghost town of Sego, passing through Thompson Springs (the inspiration of the movie Cars). Once again hitting the highway for a while, we’ll rendezvous with the other trail ride groups for camp at Little Sahara sand dunes in Utah, which will be our jumping off point for the final push to CruiserFest.


Grand Junction, CO to Tooele Trail Ride

Trail Leader: Alan “Ace” Brown

The Grand Junction team will meet in Fruita, Colorado (Exit 19 off the I-70) Tuesday, September 2 at 9:00 am. Waypoints include Dinosaur National Monument, Flaming Gorge NRA, and the High Uintas. Group will likely rendezvous in the Little Sahara

Prescott, AZ to Tooele Trail Ride
Trail Leader: Scott Brady

Details coming

City of Rocks, ID to Tooele Trail Ride
Trail Leaders: Dave Connors and Ryan Davis

The City of Rocks group will meet up Wednesday, September 3 and spend the night at City of Rocks National Reserve.

We’ll break camp and hit the trail by 9:30 am Thursday morning. The route to CruiserFest will start out east toward the hamlet of Naf. After a quick stop at the tiny market for a last chance at supplies and maybe some ice cream the group will turn south around the Raft River Mountains and head for the remnants of the historic Kelton Cemetery. From there we’ll head along the original Transcontinental Railroad grade to the town of Lucin. After hopping over the tracks we’ll make a quick stop at the Lucin Sun Tunnels. The Sun Tunnels are one of the three pieces of Earth Art in the Great Salt Lake Desert and the site of Solstice based pilgrimages for many. We will continue south toward the Bonneville Salt Flats and the Silver Island Range to have lunch and take a group photo on the shimmering reflection of the world famous home of “land speed records.”

After a quick stop in Wendover to top off fuel tanks and a chance to wash the salt off the Cruisers the route will continue south through the eastern fringes of the Great Basin Desert. A quick stop at Blue Lake, a true desert anomaly, will be our last stop before heading into the Deep Creek Mountains to set up camp.

Following breakfast Friday morning, we’ll break camp and hit the trail by 10:00 am. The route will head through Callao, south down to the Weiss Highway, and then east through the Confusion Range. We will head to Simpson Springs where we will meet up with the other trail groups and caravan into CruiserFest together.
