off road driving

We did this in a group of 3 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicons and the first part up from Bown's Reservoir is very pleasant. However, once you start on the South Draw Road portion of the track, it becomes very difficult. Easy perhaps for mountain bikes, but challenging for jeeps. My friends in the other two Rubicons had lifts and larger tires, whereas I had a stock Rubicon. Needless to say, they were doing better than I. There were a few spots where my jeep was tilting toward a sheer drop and the only thing that kept me going was the knowledge that my friends ahead of me made it without rolling. Once you arrive at Capitol Gorge, it is a very easy paved road of course.
