I am planning on turning the afternoon after our maintenance run into a father's day camping trip with my oldest (4).  Will depend on exactly when/where we finish the maintenance run but plan to find a nice camp site and then do some exploring Sunday morning after breakfast.  Have a few options in mind for the camp site so will post a poll up for what people attending want: 1. View/peak, 2. level group area, 3. water front (creek), 4. or cannonball to Deer Valley, 5. cannonball to Pardoe 

1, 2, and 3 will all be close to the base of strawberry or off Long Canyon then Sunday running long canyon and cody meadow then looping down from leek springs through grizzly flats. (least driving after work day, few moderate sections on Long Canyon with optional hard lines at the lookout, rest being easy forest roads, easiest to bail early)

4 would mean Forestdale Rd then getting to camp closer to sunset somewhere around Blue/Lost/Tamarack/Sunset Lakes and then wheeling and finishing off Hwy 4 on sunday. (lots of driving especially getting home, moderate trail with difficult section at end)

5 would mean snagging a sport where we can near bear river reservoir then running pardoe/hungalelti exiting mud lake sunday. (middling driving, haven't done the trail in 20 yrs but OnX has it at same difficulty as deer valley, least certainty on camp site)


Vehicle requirements are club basics and no fullsizes on smaller than 37s. These are tight Jeep trails so a 2door will do it stock but bigger rigs will want bigger tires or at least an utter lack of mechanical sympathy.
