Bushwacker Attends the Silver Valley Jeep Jamboree in Idaho

Jeep Jamborees are a great place for off-road newcomers and experienced trail runners to share a few days on the trails, see incredible landscapes, and have some time in the great outdoors. Bushwacker attended the Silver Valley Jeep Jamboree in Mullan, Idaho in late June. There was lots of rain and plenty of mud, and it was still a great chance to meet Jeep owners and hit the incredibly scenic trails of Northern Idaho. In addition to being a sponsor of the Jeep Jamboree, Bushwacker had a booth at registration, helped the Jeep Jamboree crew with trail support, and rode the trails with the group.

The lush trails were narrow and very muddy with lots of steep grades and switchbacks. The surroundings were simply beautiful. Some of the trails clung to the steep hillsides allowing you to view the tops of trees that rose from the mountain floor like giant brown and green spires. There were some abandoned mine sites along the route, too. It made you think about what it must’ve been like when these mines were bustling.

We’re looking forward to the next time we can hit the trails with the Jeep Jamboree crew. In the meantime, here are some pictures from the event. Also, be sure to check out the full line of Bushwacker products for Jeep vehicles.
