Public Photos Become a Havasu 4 WheelerIn The News
Welcome to the Havasu 4 Wheelers, a non-profit organization. We provide for the social, educational and recreational activities of its membership, participate in and supporting civic activities for the betterment of the community, enjoy and protecting the natural resources, and support and promote the multiple uses principle as applied to Public Land.
Since 1993 the Havasu 4 Wheelers and our a 225 member families have enjoyed back country 4X4 travel to ghost towns, old mines, remote desert areas and have enjoy the vistas from high mountain peaks using the many dirt trails around Lake Havasu. The trails vary from easy to very hard but it’s all fun and done in the company of great people - all for the varied ‘tastes’ of our membership. We hold over 100 4X4 runs a season.
We drive predominately Jeep model’s – about 50/50 TJ or JK two doors. But we have a smattering of JK Unlimiteds, Cherokees, L J’s, C J’s, Suzuki’s, FJ’s, and some rock buggies. Every vehicle must pass a safety inspection and we emphasize safety – no alcohol permitted on runs.
We also have annual ‘trips’ to Moab, Utah, but then occasionally to Tombstone, Sedona, Verde Valley or Death Valley. We enjoy numerous social activities and raise monies for local charities.
We commit many hours of labor annually to keep our public 4X4 trails and desert areas open. We fence off dangerous mine shafts, remove junk cars from the desert, conduct a “Desert Clean-up” annually, and check on remote water guzzlers built for Desert Big Horn Sheep. We do these things to give back to the desert areas we all use and enjoy – and we find it all fun and rewarding too!
We hold monthly membership meetings during our “Jeeping Season” and are then ‘dark’ June, July, and August. During the season we schedule monthly dinners out, monthly men’s’ breakfasts, monthly ladies’ luncheons, and other frequent special events. All capped off with our annual awards dinner where we recognize and thank our trail bosses, leaders, and task masters who coordinate all those fun things we do all season long.
The “unofficial” part of the club that most members enjoy is the great camaraderie that comes from the challenge of Jeeping old trails and the incredible vistas and great solitude our vast desert areas offer for us like-minded folks.
