We provide the Th/Fr dates for Wrightwood planning purposes since the race weekend can straddle both July and August and cause confusion.

Driving to Chantry Flats during race weekend.
Chantry Flats is open to crews. However, parking is very limited! Do not recommend you take a motor home or any large vehicle because of the limited space to drive, park and turn around.
