Miller Jeep trail never disappoints. Big tires, lift with gears and lockers no problem, love the incline zigzag rock trail, so much fun. You will leave with some pin-striping.

Very fun and difficult trail. No stock vehicle could make it up. Most difficult parts of the trail required 4x4. Went up in a Jeep Wrangler on 35s with a 3 1/2 in. lift. So much fun!!!!!

Incredible trail. We did all 29 miles in a stock JL 4 door Sahara, just barely - equipped with the OEM bridgestone duelers. Don’t come up here in the other road spec OEM tires. Unlike some other trails that have an easy main road and various challenging offshoots, this one is a mandatory black diamond almost all the way through, but all doable. Limited slip helped immensely and lockers would absolutely boost confidence as it gets very rocky and challenging towards the top of the third and largest climb summiting the 6900 foot peak. Once you peak it finally lets you relax a little. Get on the trail by noon or else you’ll be wheeling at night, takes a solid 4-5 hours to run through. Unreal experience and loads of fun with insane views. Tons of technical wheeling and problem solving and a couple small/shallow river and creek crossings.

Note: this review is for when I went during the fall back in October or so. I heard it's closed during the winter months starting November and won't open until May. You should check with the local ranger office or call to double check. Fun trail with steep and off camber climbs. Definitely recommend 4x4 with good off road tires and maybe rear locker. My stock Wrangler Rubicon made it through without damage but I used the lockers up the steep grades just to be safe.

Excellant challenging trail with great scenery. I've done this trail more than 5 times now. Every winter it changes. Last spring (2018) was the most challenging. I have a FJ Cruiser 3" lift 10K winch full set of Skids and rock sliders. ARB locker and ATRAC. This trail will show what upgrades you need for your Rig.

I Ran this trail with some friends, one 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee, another in a 2018 Wrangler Rubicon 4 door and yours truly in an 08 wrangler sport 2 door. I have a 2.5 inch lift on 35s. aired down to 18psi. and had a blast! the last part before you get to Dutchmans Camp. is the scariest part. but take your time it's about skill not speed. bring plenty of water, food, snacks. theres no cell phone reception for most of the trail so DONT GO ALONE!

Did it today with a pretty much stock 2018 JK Rubicon all I have is 3/16” steel rock sliders for oil pan, trans pan, lower control arms skid, 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” tires, I took my time and had the trail all for myself today single Rig no spotter (passengers) made it with just a few little scratches on my skids oh plus one rim got his first scratcher just before the Camp side.

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!

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 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 :)

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.

Went up there today with stock 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport 4 door factory Goodyear tires aired down to 29 psi we made it further then the junction of Yellow Jacket about another mile from there on up to the Miller Jeep trail. I tell you, don’t do it without a spotter or some experience. It is not recommended with the rig I had but it was fun even I had to bow down and turn around it was still a good time with the wife. All beginners be aware especially with stock rig!!!

Drove in off Lockwood Valley road, 3 Jeep Wrangler 4 doors, JKU, 2 were Rubicons. All had 3.5"lift and 37's or 35" tires. First time 4 wheeling a Jeep for all of us, though we all have off roading experience. Made it to the top of Alamo Mtn. via Miller Jeep Trail. It was a fun day with challenging hills with big boulders all over. Take the right line and it's pretty manageable. 4x4 lo, no locker and made it up to the top. Next time we'll bring the wives now we know what to expect. Regulatorz!!!! Mount up!!!

Amazing trail. Vader, my JKUR, worked its way just shy of half way with ease. Had to turn back due to time constraints but I can't wait till I get the chance to take on the whole thing.

I ran this trail in my 06 open-diff Xterra 4x4. With good spotting on a few obstacles, I was able to complete this trail with no issues. I had no body damage, only a few scrapes on rock sliders. Overall, this trail is challenging, but fun and a great learning experience to build up your skills. A lift is highly recommended with some under armor. Lockers will help greatly, but not necessary if lines are chosen correctly. It's all about the lines.
