    Kings of the Crest

    Cruise and Camp on Angeles Crest

     Daften Classic is proud to announce KINGS of the CREST 2! We will be taking the scenic Angeles Crest Highway up into the mountains above Pasadena for a relaxing day out of the city. Join us after dinner for a cruise from camp to the historic Mt. Wilson Observatory and stay the night under the stars. 

    WHERE: We cruise from Glendale, CA to the Meadows Group Campground off of the Angeles Crest highway, a 2 hour ascension of over 5000 feet! 

    WHEN: September 5th, 2018. We meet mid-morning and head to the hills! Return Sunday Morning 

    WHAT TO BRING: The Campground is paid for! Just bring enough food and water for your crew and a little extra to share! There are picnic tables, fire rings, and a water spigot on site. This is a tent camping site (Or sleep in your Westy!) so come prepared! 


    This is a free event - Thank you to our sponsors!

    CLUBS ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to contact and coordinate with Daften Classic. 
    Please include the names of Club Directors, Presidents, or Administrators with contact information. Important information will be relayed to these parties first.

    Sponsorship Opportunities: Do you design T-shirts or print Promotional materials? Would you be interested in catering or providing entertainment? Want to donate to the Raffle? Get in touch! 

    This is an event for AIR COOLED Volkswagen cars.

    For 2018, we've secured both campsites to accomodate non-VW vehicles accompanying participants. There is limited space for camper trailers.

    We will be applying the TREAD LIGHTLY principles to this trip! Everyone is encouraged to share the TREAD LIGHTLY and "Pack it in/Pack it out" philosophy so we can keep the campground clean, and make this a thriving annual event! Keep this trip friendly to families and nature alike!

    This event is not sanctioned by Volkswagen, Porsche, or any affiliates of VW or Porsche corporate entities
