Great trail and really put my 1998 Honda CRV AWD with 2" lift to work today. 3 very rutted out obstacles in the very beginning but luckily there was plenty of rocks to fill in some of the ruts to make it through. Lots of side trails for harder obstacles but the main trail was good enough for me. Will definitely try this trail again but with more people. Beautiful view of the valley and Silver Wood Lake at the end. Make sure to air down tires and carry a jacket this time of the month gets pretty chilly up there.

This was a fun trip.I will definitely come back. Some say a 2WD can manage this. You definitely want a high clearance vehicle and 4WD is a bonus. Airing down will make the drive a lot more pleasant as well. I love that there is a main trail with offshoots for the people who want things more technical. I recommend you give this trail a go!

2018 Jeep Rubicon JLU, a lot of people out on the trail. But everyone was respectful. A lot of fun, be careful of one of the last offshoot with the marker that’s not marked. It’s a cool view but its a dead end one way or down a very technical area.

First time ever off roading and it was incredible. If you decide to come here, be ready go one way, because turning around is tough. Most 4x4 or AWD can easily make it if you have some clearance. Mostly rocky but great place to get your tires dirty for the 1st time.

Fantastic trail. It is all dirt and rocks, so be mindful to that. Most off-road vehicles can make it through. There are a few washed out crevices, but you should be able to navigate around them for the most part. There are also harder hills that branch off for modified trucks that reconnect with the main trail. Note that this trail does get snow in the winter and has tight roads. If you’re looking for water crossings, waterfalls, camping spots, or places to relax with shade; this is NOT the trail.

It was my first time off road, engaging 4H and 4L on my Jeep Sport 19 was fun and a great experience overall! Tip - start early in the day to avoid traffic.

Great run in any offroad vehicle. Like others have said a little tight in most areas. So keep an eye out for cross traffic. Also, try and stay on the actual route as some of the side rods are extremely difficult, and I would say they are only for the most experienced 4x4 vehicles.

Did this trail yesterday with a stock JLUR. Very busy with a lot of cars, ATVs, and bikes. Quite a few technical spots and a lot of sharp rocks. Some sections are pretty tight for two cars to pass each other. Many off-shoots for the more daring, but if you don’t want to beat up your car, stick to the main path. No real good spots for stopping to chill or have something to eat. Next.

Did it on 4/28/20 in a 2020 Subaru Outback with a 2” lift. (Fire road only) This is basically a fire road with offshoots that are moderate plus to difficult. Most of the offshoots would be almost impossible in a Subaru. I was talking to some of the regulars who say that during the spring the fire road is as tough as it gets. And this year especially due to all of the recent rain. At the beginning of the fire season they grade the fire road and apparently it can be done in 2WD once it has been graded. But in the spring it’s not so easy. I had a great time on the fire road entering from the 15 heading to silverwood lake. Going up from the 15 there were at least two sections of the fire road that were difficult for the Subaru. Had to attempt more than once to get past them and there is nowhere to turn around plus there are lots of jeeps who can take it way faster than I could to add to the pressure. On the backside the road gets very rocky and there are some tricky “straddle” sections that if weren’t played right would leave you stuck. In the end though I got out of there with only one scrape on the front bumper and a few moments where I thought I was in over my head but ended up making it. If you’re going in anything less than a Tacoma I’d say don’t do it alone and make sure you’ve got your recovery strap and shackles. Aired down to 23psi. Be sure to go LEFT at the punch bowl or you’ll be on one of the hardest sections. Watch YouTube videos on this trail before going.

Went out today In my stock gladiator rubicon. Pretty easy for the majority of the trail. There are some rutted out areas that shouldn’t be a problem if you slow and have a spotter. Had a stock Renegade in our group and made it through entire trail. Avoid some of the offshoots, unless you really want to test yourself and your rig. Very popular trail, with more traffic then most trails. #CORK

Great fire road style trail. Tons of offshoots that range in difficulty for you to try if desired. Main trail is easy and can be done in 2wd with decent clearance. We had a 2wd Tacoma trd off road in our group and they made it all the way easily while also taking a few of the side trails. Good fun and takes about 2.5 - 3 hours with minimal stops.
