Las Cuevas Trail

Postby Slow Poke » March 9th, 2011, 1:21 pm

So i took my van( Navara ) for it's first offroad experience this monday through las cuevas, now i didn't go all the way in because i was alone. Two other pick ups were there ( looked like a ranger was helping out an old model b2500) and a guy directed me to which mud hole the van would traverse
The van moved nicely through the step high mud on stock showroom tyres, but decided to turn around as the mud water was getting a lil deeper, and i didn't want to risk getting stuck.......
so i think next time i'll make a run with you guys with a lil preparation.

I know some guys who had some bad experiences getting stuck in there.. Would advise against going there alone..

Im pretty sure the Pajero can handle that trail no sweat, but my main worry is not the sticking but the kind of people who tend to be around there..
I have heard about quite a few robbery incidents on the western end of las cuevas.. (preumably by the people waiting for the next drugs shipment to come in)

Boy I went thru that trail one sunday afternoon with my hilux with wife and daughter in tow. Went in ok but got stuck comin back out. No one else in sight. Was a total nightmare. See me shiftin from H4 to L4, Forward to reverse with wifey and daughter screaming and clouting me up all the while.

Eventually got out. Van was totally covered in mud after. Have been back there couple times after but with company.

Never goin back there by myself again and wouldnt advise anyone else to do so either.

the only safe time to go throu there would be during the dry season. It is almost impossible any other time

Light where is Side B?/?. Almost got into the second pit but the water was looking real deep with no sign of grip in sight so it was at that point i made a 360. just got the van washed today was wearing my signature"first time off road mud".

Looking forward to trying offroading again but in numbers. Drop me a line when is the next run, so i could finally put faces to names......
