by far the easiest trail I've ever done

Just came back from Switzerland Trail, it was really nice and easy with great views until we passed Gold Hill Rd going North. Andrea below wrote a warning but I totally didn’t see it. I would not recommend going that last stretch of the trail, at least not this time of the year. It gets extremely narrow and slippery. The back end of our 4Runner (on brand new Wildpeaks) almost slipped off the trail. I was able to save it but we had a really hard time, and turning around was almost impossible. We were finally able to turn around without damage but it took over 2 hours. On the way back we saved a Dodge Ram that was also having a difficult time.

Super fun road easy trail for all vehicles. Barely any snow 1-9-19 there is a off shoot at the very end if you go on it it is definitely a hard trail

Super easy good for a beginner trail and just fun to sight see

Used the trail to the Wilderness Boundary then looped back along the road. Traction helpful, but snowshoes required above the falls. Good hike, nice day. Great views of Sawtooth and Buchannan Pass.

hit this trail again today, plenty of snow on the trail but in my stock 15 Cherokee Trailhawk made it without any difficulty while in 4 low and snow mode, as always a beautiful and fun drive and the snow today made it even better.

Beautiful trail, but a warning: there is currently (12/24/2018) a dead end several miles past the Gold Hill Rd crossing, going north, along the path indicated by the trail map. Additionally, along that same stretch, there are some regions of higher snow pack that are easy to get stuck in without snow tires or chains (we found out the hard way). That side of the mountain is in the shade and likelier to retain snow.

I had a great time on this trail, I did it with a modified Jeep TJ sport with 33 inch tires. You could get through this with a stock Jeep but it will be more enjoyable with a lift and a sway bar disconnect. There is one section with about 2-3 ft of snow but it is passable. I got stuck however in a little off-trail - way too much snow. It is definitely doable right now if you are smart, as there is not too much snow for most of the trail.

At the very beginning there is a 30 yard ice hill but I had no problems climbing it. Just have a little guts and go for it :)

Those who live in the mountains will expect this but I will add there is about 2 spots on this entire trail with service so come prepared and plan wisely.

I would definitely recommend going on this. I cannot believe how far up some of those houses are! Insane.

Guess I'm not the first to take his new SUV, a 4Runner on this trail. Trail as described, it was partially covered with packed snow and some icy spots. Great views of the surrounding area and the mountains to the west. Lots of backbreaking work went into this rail line. Enjoy.

Beautiful, great views, clean trail. My wife and I took the trail from near Glacier Lake down to the trailhead at Sugarloaf. Mostly snowpacked and no problem for our 2017 Jeep Renegade.

Easy road, lots of great views, we did it into the night and was still very fun

Super easy for a Jeep, mostly just good views, there’s a couple spots along the way to pull off and check everything out.

Great trail that is in between moderate and difficult. There are a bunch of spots that were made more difficult by the snow that is on the trail once you get higher up and there are a few technical spots. Luckily there are enough turn around spots because I had to turn around half way because a jeep was doing some self recovery on the trail on a snow covered rocky spot and I wasn't going to sit there and wait knowing that those things take time. I have a tacoma with 33" tires and a lift and I didn't have any issues clearing any of the obstacles.

Great trail, due to the weather we didn't get to finish it, so it's on the list for next year.

Lots of snow last weekend when we were there! Only saw 4 other people while we were out!

Good trail to test your abilities. Going counterclockwise-first half of loop can be challenging, second half is much easier. Rubicon with 3.5" lift and 35" tires made it no problem. Would consider this trail on the harder side of moderate. Could definitely see stock vehicles having some troubles, but still doable.

A nice trail, offers something different and easy to reach from the city.

Fun little trail with a couple of rocky sections to keep it interesting. It has old cabins to explore, found the creepy mine, a few great camping spots and I was treated to a few amazing overlooks.
I made the mistake of not giving myself enough time to really explore, but I’ll be back another season!

Harder than expected - mostly due to time of year. North face had a good amount of slush and snow this weekend 10/20. I run a 18 T4R OR with sliders and full skids. I used the skids a lot! I wouldn’t run the trail again until I get a lift. This was prob my last run of the season and it didn’t disappoint. Just beware if you don’t have good clearance!

Great little trail with some good little hills and rocks to climb

Great trail overall. Has some great views when you come out of the trees. It is tight in some spots and would be tricky for anything much bigger than my 4Runner. My 2.5” lift was plenty and saw a stock Tacoma doing just fine. Fairly snowy up top already.

Great trail for stock 4x4, views were excellent. There was a fair amount of traffic Saturday morning going up stage coach and gold rush... once we got up to almagre trail we felt pretty secluded! Our stock Jeep Grand Cherokee did excellent we had no problems, had a blast.

Easy drive with many old mining structures. Views from the drive are so so. The good part is it is close to other trails.

Did it on a ATV , fun , some rocky inclines / declines . I’d go back again for sure.

The mining stuff was cool to look at, but the trail was really short.

Beautiful drive especially in the fall, but should not be rated easy...definitely moderate. Coming back down was much easier. We saw a Moose on the way up which was really cool! Only about 3 areas that were tricky. The entrance being the worst of it. Coming back down was much easier.

Fun, easy, forested trail with several good look out points over the river. Lots of sweet dogs and a few nice people. Went in late September and the Aspens were amazing!

good trail to take your jeep for a nice drive

I drove Storm Mountain 128 and 153 with my girlfriend in her stock 17 Rubicon unlimited. It cleared all exposed rock obstacles. However, there is 1 section I did not chance on the end of the steep climb on 153. Only had 1 jeep and no winch. Other than that, it was a great time! I saw a couple other jeeps along the trail. The aspen are changing. I also saw several turkey with poults. Saw 1 yote on the trail. Good times, check this spot.
