Welcome to the ECXC19 Trail Group Discussion!

The East Coast Xterra Challenge (ECXC) is an Xterra only event.

This year there will be four (4) Group types; "Green" or “Stock”, "Blue" or “Intermediate”, “Black" or "Advanced” & ”SAS”.

"Green" or “Stock” - Stock trails range in difficulty from flat dirt roads to slightly off-camber and rocky trails. Stock trails are best suited for inexperienced wheelers and bone stock vehicles. Threat of vehicle damage is non-existent as long as you drive responsibly, however brush scratches are possible. Stock Trails include easier green trails.

"Blue" or “Intermediate” - Intermediate trails offer more of a challenge for slightly modified vehicles. Trails will be rockier, may have more off camber situations and may include rocky creek crossings. Bone stock vehicles can handle most of these trails, but without skid plates and rock sliders, both undercarriage damage and rocker panel damage should be expected. The threat of damage on these trails is minimal, but should not be unexpected. Careless or inattentive driving will result in body damage. Harder Green trails and easier Blue Trails at Rausch Creek would be taken in this group.

"Black or “Advanced” –I wouldn’t run them without 33’s or bigger, a winch, full protection, a carefree attitude towards damage, the tools/parts/ability and supplies to repair breakage. Blue, Blue/Black, Black trails (depending on group make-up) will be run by this group.
This Group will not be an assigned “Advanced Trail Leader”. As soon as any two or more trucks show up in the morning they can go run trails and not stand around waiting for someone to hold their hand. If you are in any way uncomfortable with this you should run with an "Blue" or “Intermediate” group...at least for the first day.

"Red" or ”SAS” – “Solid Axle Shakeout” this will be for solid front axle modified trucks to deal with problems unrelated to IFS trucks.

Attendees will not be “Locked” into a group until they arrive.
Preference for a “Trail Leader” will be accommodated on a first come, first served basis.
Trails that are run by a group are determined by the Groups ”Trail Leader”.
