 Area 51 – June 15-16

We are heading back to Area 51 to see if we can find the elusive flying saucers. In 2016, we had the strangest weather with snow, hail and monsoon rains, which lead us to call the event early for safety concerns. This year, we are headed back to finish the trails we started and see if aliens do exist. In addition, we are changing it up, starting, and ending in Las Vegas, and we will have many new trails to explore for returning participants. This is a second chance to see Area 51 if you missed the first go around.

Starting in Las Vegas, NV, we will head North along the border of the Groom Lake test range, AKA Area 51. Day 1 will be the sightseeing day to make stops at the usual tourists’ spots: Little Ale’Inn, and Groom Lake Road Gate, to name a few. There are a few other stops planned for those in attendance to get out, stretch, and maybe see a UFO… or two. The end of the day will be in Tonopah NV for sleep and food. Day 2 will head back to Las Vegas. Major stops will be at several old mine camps and a stop at Devils Hole.

Pre Event – June 14th

For those who would like a more relaxed start for the weekend’s activities, we have arranged a group rate at the Silverton Casino. This will allow those of you who are coming from a distance to have a place to rest and relax before a weekend on the trail. This is also the starting location for the event.
