1-Sierra-Trek-50th-6-13-2017
Back in 1964, a small group of four-wheelers came up with the idea of creating a fundraising event for the newly formed California Association of 4WD Clubs. It would need to be a first-rate venue similar to the then-famous Jeepers Jamboree on the Rubicon. The chosen route was a long-abandoned wagon road from Cisco Grove, California (near Truckee), to the shores of Meadow Lake and the 1860’s mining camp of Summit City. The event was called Sierra Trek, and it would become one of the West’s premier destinations for family fun, great food, and some of the best trails in the country.
