Event Headquarters: Gilbert Ice Area

The Gilbert Ice Arena is located across from Sherwood Forest Campground. During the event, this building serves as our home base for registration, the evening bbq, banquet, merchandise sales, silent auction, vendor displays, and more.  Hours will be published in the weeks leading up to The Crawl.


Trail rides take place at the Iron Range Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Area, the state’s first public off-road park. The park offers all levels of trails, insuring everyone can have a fun, safe weekend while seeing what their vehicle can do. Whether your 4×4 is stock or highly modified, there is sure to be something for you.
