Running a stock JLU on 35s. Definitely tested the Jeep, but with spotters and a good line we made it through without major issues. Some scraped skid pans and rock sliders, but that’s what they’re there for. Happy trails

Had a great day yesterday! We ran the trail with 9 rigs, no issues, no damage. It’s a fun day run for sure.

Did it today with a pretty much stock 2018 Rubicon all I have is 3/16” steel rock sliders for oil pan, trans pan, lower control arms, gas tank skid, front and rear diff skids aired down the stock tires to 24 psi and off I went by myself.
I used my lockers maybe a handful times front and rear.
I recommend to have at least 12” of clearance and 32” up if you know how to drive, of course if you go bigger the easier it is but then it’s not as challenging for a good driver, I took my time all by myself today single Rig no spotter just me and made it with just a few little scratches on my skids oh plus one rim right before the Camp side on the top watch that narrow spot when the trail actually ends bitch got me on the right rear!!

I drove this trail in a lifted 4Runner. I read the reviews here first and I can say that it was pretty challenging and at times a bit of a nail biter! Not sure if it was I good idea but I went alone, without a spotter :). I dented up the underside of the Toyota and had lots of fun. Most definitely an adventure!

If you want to go up the mountain around to view the lake you will need a 4x4 with good tread on your tires. Not necessarily a lift kit but traction is key on this trail.

Multiple wondering options to get lost in but follow the directions and take the last turn down to the left. Looks sketchy but that’s where the trail starts.

Awesome trail, as easy or as challenging as you want with all the off shoots. The views are absolutely beautiful.

took my 2007 Nissan Titan 3 inch lift 35 only had to back up and change route ones due to trail conditions otherwise had little trouble going through the trail. manageable in a two-wheel drive if you have decent tires and ground clearance.

I drove all the way up there thinking “yeah it’s gonna be a hard trail but nothing my Tacoma can’t handle” turns out you really have to have a beefed up truck with rock sliders and bigger tires, and maybe a air compressor for when you air down. Ended up not doing it but did another down the hill with a easy sign attached to it. If your considering going, I would definitely have something like a Jeep or a lifted truck.

first time taking out my xj sport with 30s and 3inch lift. we made it all the way had so much fun. just 4.l and pick your line and smooth throttle control and you will be good.

Took the trail in my completely stock 2012 tacoma trd off road dropped into 4x4 hi but I feel like I didn’t really need too. Some minor ruts but I made it through with stock clearance. It was very rocky in some sections. Will be back again with a lift bigger tires and aired down just to take away from the rocky sections.

Super chill & scenic trail. Took my stock 2016 Crosstrek up there as my intro to off road/trail riding.

Had a fun time running this trail in my 2WD locked 4runner. Took about half the off-shoots, turned around on a few but still had a blast.

Stock 2017 JKUR HR can do this with a little rock stacking. Trail is mostly flat, 4 or 5 semi challenging obstacles. Couple scratches on the gas tank skid plate.

Took my 89 XJ down the trail and had no problems, just pick good lines because some of those ruts could leave you on your side or worse.

Easy trail. Great wildflowers while we were there (Early June 2018). Most vehicles could do this trail. We climbed right up it in our stock 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk.

Not really a fan. A couple of moderately difficult step ups early on but this whole trail is nothing but rock. Not the challenging types of rocks, just rocks. And more rocks. To the extent that we just turned around at about the half way point cause it just wasn’t fun. Relentless rock bumps that just got old fast. As I mentioned, we didn’t do the whole trail so it’s possible that it gets better further up but I don’t think so.

this is a great skill builder trail for those getting into 4 wheeling. the steep technical climbs are mild and keep you enjoying the trail. mid way there is a sketchy hill climb option that has 4 paths up. the 2 center being the most rutted out and will require lockers to get through. this can be bypassed of course. towards the top there is a rock crawling obstacle for those that want to test their rig and their skill. I had no problems with my jeep wrangler. from the top, you can loop back down, or continue trail to the reservoir. i have done both and prefer the continue to the reservoir as now the descends are technical but not too extreme.

first time I did this trail I had a blast. second time I did this was a 10pm night run. it's long, it will take you a solid 2-3 hours depending how your rig is and how confident you are. 95% of it is easy, but the 5% will put any Toyota to its test if you choose the hard lines. I took it all with ease in my jeep wrangler. any stock jeep can do this trail easily, no lockers needed. towards the end of trail into camp ground, it looks intimidating for a first time experience, but all the rocks are solid in place and make for easy crawling through. none lifted Toyotas will have a bit of challenge but hey, get out and lay down a rock to make some stepping stones.. but try to kick them out after so the jeep guys can still enjoy the technical fun stuff :)

this trail is best when you do every single off shoot you see instead of the boring fire road. jeeps are able to take all the offshoot lines, which isn't hard if you already have off road experience. however, in a Toyota truck, or 4 runner, the hardest lines will definitely 3 wheel due to lack of articulation with IFS... unless you disconnect front sway bar. the only challenging portions are towards the end, which is also the best part to finish the trail. lockers are not needed here. I've been here twice and towards the end Toyota guys crowd up to watch the jeeps do the steep rutted off shoots. gotta love having a jeep!

Great trail. Some minor challenges without lockers in a lifted 17’ JKU with 35” tires. Really only would have engaged them once but a little bump and we were up and over.

We have a 2000 Jeep Wrangler with a 3” lift and 33” tires. No lockers. We entered from Lockwood valley and popped out at the top of hungry valley. The trail was challenging at the beginning and at the end with large rocks and steep terrain. The last 2 miles are very challenging and slow going. Tight trails with some scratches from bushes. After this trail we added lockers and will be heading back out again. Plan on a full day of wheeling and don’t do it alone.

Ran this trail from Johnson Valley up to Burns Canyon in a completely stock 2017 Tacoma TRD4x4OR and mostly stock 2016 Chevy Colorado Z71. Although I'd say a 4x4 vehicle is absolutely necessary, the trail was pretty easy for the first 10 miles with mostly loose sand and moguls. Some tight turns might scratch up the side of a full size truck, but well worth the drive with all the beautiful canyon views! At about the 10 mile mark from the Old Woman Springs turnoff is where the trail has it's first true "moderate" obstacle that required some good spotting to get our stock trucks through it, but we made it without hassle. Definitely looked like this obstacle took its toll on some vehicles with scattered plastic, cuts in the rocks, and oil spots visible. Another mile up the trail was another "moderate" obstacle that involved a tight turn for our trucks while rock crawling over some large and loose rocks. Other than those 2 obstacles though this trail was probably an easy rating but those certainly made it a moderate. Check out the video for a detailed report of the run from start to finish! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Da4JDmFjpcA

Just finished this trail on 4/28/18. loved it, I used my stock 2000 dodge dakota 5.9L V8 4x4 on this trail. So much fun will be doing it again! I have 32 inch tires on 15 inch wheels when I was doing this trail.

Not a bad trail, however be careful of the cranky old man in the red jeep... he seems to think he owns the road and has the right to tell people they can't stop 10' off the trail for 5 minutes to wait for someone to catch up.
he came charging down the road and got out of his jeep and had a gun on one side and a hunting knife on the other side and told us we were driving over 15 mph and we had no right to park there because we could only be within 50' of the road ( we were 10' ) off the in a turnout waiting for a friend.
he said i was honking at you and you didn't leave ( he was 1/2 mile away at his house )... he seems to think he has law enforcement ability on a public trail and means to do it with attempted intimidation tactics... yea good luck with that.

still a fun trail with the exception of Mr Grouchy

It was a really nice trail today. Not too tight with enough room to get around someone. The forest department has provided a very nice staging area off the 138 about 2.5 miles east of the 15fwy. On the 138 there's a forestry sign that says something about Cleghorn staging area next right. When you see the sign, they mean the next right!! A dirt road about 200 feet past the sign. We were towing a green sticker vehicle and were a little concerned when we saw a sign that said no green sticker vehicle on this road. But I guess the sign only referred to the.25 mile dirt road to the staging area. Trash cans and toilets at the staging area--very nice. My buddy and I only had one complaint---people will you please take your trash out with you!!! If you can carry in the beer cans, food wrappers, etc., you can certainly get your shit back home! I am a backpacker for 35 years but the body is having trouble carrying the load, so we're learning the off road experience. We brought one kitchen trash bag for our trash and whatever other trash we may have come across. Crap, we should have brought a dump truck. If we all can't start taking care of our off road areas, the government is just going to say, screw you guys, we're shutting it down!! Let's show a little concern for our wilderness!! Enjoy the drive!!!!
