OHV/Off Road DrivingMuddy

MUDDY!!!!! I mean, I was literally driving sideways. It was not fun for me at all. If you’re equipped with the right rig, you’ll love it. Not for me at all.

Great trail and tons of fun, however would not recommend to beginners. I live in the area and we have gotten a lot of rain lately making it much harder than rated. Be prepared for challenges and would recommend bail out equipment. Many different options of routes but would not rate any of them “easy”.

Fun trail with some moderately challenging areas. We drove it in our stock FJ and had no major issues. This trail was really busy with lots of UTVs zipping around. We tied this in with Missouri Gulch, making an excellent couple hour 4wd trip.

Ran this on 2019 4runner TRD offroad, stock height, have rock sliders and skids. I hit the hardest obstacles driving up with only having to use the rear locker over some moguls. not hard, hit the line left ( of the main gnarly line)of the first tree. sketchy but didn't scrape once. Definitely fun.

Great 4x4 trail for all vehicle types. Did this in my stock ‘17 TRD Off-Road 4Runner and had no drama or issues. Found a couple areas that would look sorta dicey but there was always a side route or alternate line you could take if you weren’t lifted.

Had a great time the trail is very muddy with little snow pack. Made an easy trail very amusing No issues for my stock JKUR on 34 Ridge Grapplers, 2020 Gladiator Sport on 35s and we had a Cherokee Trailhawk in our group with 31in Nitto Terra Grapplers make it through with little drama

It was my first trail driving, but it was a blast! A couple of slick spots and some rocks. There’s one hill that has some mud, rocks, and snow. Pretty muddy, I’m assuming from the snow melt. I did it with no trail experience in a stock Jeep Wrangler Rubicon with no issues. The group I went with did not attempt the icy and steep hill. That was our turn around point. Some good views!

Incredibly icy steep hill. Do not attempt unless you have multiple rigs to winch you SLOWLY up/down. My jeeps axle shaft has met the end of its life from smashing into a tree...forced upgrades... yay!

Awesome trail. Be careful on one hill it’s very slick. Two trucks slid down and hit the tree.

Drove the trail for the first time today (11/17/19). Great weather made for a nice dry trail. Snow in shaded areas but nothing to make the ride difficult. Could be done in a stock 4x4.

Ran up to mini Moab and then back out. Some nice rocky sections but nothing crazy 4hi with sway bar disconnected for some articulation. Mini Moab is pretty torn up with lots of ruts on the waterfall. I opted to pass on this optional obstacle as I am running a stock JL Unlimited Rubicon and wouldn’t have the clearance needed. We turned back and headed out to the Trailhead to save time as a big group had come through but it’s a great little fun trail. Good mix of rigs up there, 4runners, Tacoma’s, XJ’s, TJ’s, JK’s, JL’s, and even some Renegade’s.

This was fun. Took a stock 2017 Mazda CX-5 GT. Was careful, didn’t hit any obstacles I couldn’t pass though I was definitely outside my comfort zone. Adventure!

Wheeled this trail, we didn't get too far, but had a great time. It was snowy and muddy, but not bad. We'll have to do it again when the conditions are dry.
