Axialfest is the biggest crawler/scale trailing event in
the world, a mecca for 4X4 fans and exclusively devoted to
drivers with Axial rigs. Held at the Cisco Grove Campground in
California’s Tahoe National Forest, Axial once again put on an
awesome event. The trail-building game was strong with the
crew this year, building nine courses with 150 gates each—
that’s 1,350 total gates! The days were packed with rock-racing and trail-running fun that went strong after sunset and
well into the night. This was my second Axialfest and I was
thrilled to experience this one-of-a-kind event again. Here’s
how it went down.
