Cayenne/Macan Off-road Adventure Tour

This September, the PCA-SDR's Cayenne/Macan Off-Road Adventure Tour will head to the back country roads in Ramona, CA, in the Cleveland National Forest, for a half day of off-road driving along a route that consists of varying terrain of mostly single car-width dirt and rock trails.  The trails are very scenic, starting out along a dirt road along the San Dieguito River which then turns up from Pamo Valley onto the Santa Ysabel Truck Trail around Black Mountain for 1.5 hours of more technical, but still easy, single width rutted dirt trails.  The drive will continue through Black Canyon along the Mesa Grande dirt road, and culminate at the Lake Henshaw Cafe for lunch.  This event is a wonderful opportunity to share the scenery and back-country driving adventure with the whole family, while experiencing the very capable off-road abilities of the Cayenne or Macan.

The event will have about 2.5 - 3 hours of off-road driving which will include a scenic viewpoint stop for pictures and to enjoy the view with friends and family.  After the off-road drive, we will take a 15 minute pavement drive and meet up for a delicious lunch where we can all sit, eat, and share stories of the drive.  The lunch is not provided by the Club; you will order and pay for your own meal.

Want a preview of the drive, so you know what to expect?  Check out this video:


Required equipment should include tires with plenty of tread, and a mechanically reliable Cayenne or Macan.  The roads are a mix of flat dirt roads, and the more technical portion is made up of narrow rutted dirt roads, with some areas where the vegetation makes the trail pretty tight.  The trails are dusty, and the bushes may create dust stripes along the doors and fenders, but irreversible paint damage should not occur with careful car placement.  Don't let the "dust stripes" scare you!  The trails are not overly difficult, but an attentive driver is still necessary to avoid obstacles that could be of harm, like protruding big rocks or paint-scratching twigs.  If all goes favorably, at the end of the route, a healthy car wash session or two should be all that is needed to return your Porsche SUV to its garage queen status and remove any evidence of its off-roading adventures, with only your pictures and memory of the experience remaining!  

We will communicate with each other during the drive using FRS type radios/walkie-talkies.  If you do not have an FRS radio, please consider buying some of these handy radios.  Inexpensive versions (2 radios under $30) as well as fancy versions can be purchased on amazon; just search for "FRS Radio" on amazon's site.

If you have any spare FRS radios, please bring them along just in case someone does not have a radio to use.  Set your FRS radios to use channel 07, with privacy code/CTCSS code 01 (not DSC).  If you're not sure how to set them up, bring your radios and we'll help you dial them in before the drive!

The event is rain or shine, but if rains have been occurring in the days leading up to the event, the trail plans may change due to forest service trail closures.  This is not an advanced off-roading event, but if you still have any equipment concerns about your Cayenne or Macan, please contact the event organizer to discuss!

If you are coming from out of town, or even out of California, staying in the town of Ramona would put you at the start and close to the finish of the event.
