Welcome to the ECXC17 Trail Group Discussion!
This year there will be three (3) Group types; “Stock”, “Intermediate” and “Advanced” .

“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.

“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.

“Advanced” – If you are considering these I don’t really need to tell ya nutin. 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.
Since anyone that signs up for an “Advanced” group and has been to Rausch in the past can lead a group and since I have been the only one to volunteer in the past couple of years I’m not assigning any “Advanced Trail Leaders” this year. As soon as any two of these fools show up in the morning they can go run trails and not stand around bitching at me...

This year Attendees will not be “Locked” into a group until they arrive.

Preference for individual an “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”.
Before you show up;:
  • Please review the NEXTerra Rausch Creek FAQ thread HERE.
  • Rausch is a membership-based facility. You must be a member to access the park! Click HERE for membership info.
  • Please review The NEXTerra Tech Inspection Checklist HERE
  • Please review the “The NEXTerra Trail Etiquette Guide” HERE
  • Please review the “The NEXTerra Spotting Guide” HERE
  • Please print and fill out; The North East Xterra Club Waiver and Release of Liability HERE (and bring it with you :roll: ).
  • Please download, print and fill out The Rausch Membership Application/Waiver HERE, The Rausch Parental Waiver (if applicable) HERE (and bring them with you :roll: ).

The Rausch Creek Office opens at 8am.

All attendees should start arriving at the park around that time and follow the instructions of the ECXC17 Staff in the Rausch parking lot each morning of the event.

As you arrive at Rausch each morning;

    You will be greeted by a ECXC17 Staff member who will direct you to the area in the parking lot where you will line up.

    A ECXC17 Staff member will meet you there and line you up in your Group and direct you to the ECXC17 Check In.

    At Check In, hand in your completed NEXterra Waiver and Release of Liability, get your event package that includes you event shirt, sticker, Raffle tickets, etc.

    Then go the Rausch Creek Office, hand in your completed Membership Application/Waiver (click HERE to download) and pay your Rausch Creek Entrance Fee(s).

    Return to your truck, air down and otherwise prepare your truck for the trails.

    There will be a short Drivers Meeting around 0900-0930 (9am-9:30am) each morning and then you will hit the trails!

There will be ECXC17 Staff members around all morning during this time and throughout each day to answer any questions you may have and help you with any problems that may arise.

You can find PDFs with descriptions of the trails on the East, West, South properties HERE and the Northeast property HERE.

You can find a PDFs with maps of the East HERE, West/South HEREand the Northeast HERE

The Rausch Office closes at 1800 (6pm), everyone should be off the trails by 1700 (5pm).
ECXC17 Staff need to make sure everyone off the trails safely and notify Rausch that our Group is out of the park.
Saturday everyone should be off the trails by 1630 (4:30pm) because the Cookout back at Twin Grove is at 1730 (5:30).
Folks can play in the Comp area if they want but they are on their own. ECXC17 Staff will be off duty at Rausch after the Office closes.


Please post any questions about running trails with ECXC17 in this thread or PM me on this board.
