Fun trail. Did it today to test out my new (to me) stock ‘18 JLU Rubicon. Not much snow. Good views and just enough obstacle challenges to scare my 12 y.o. daughter.

Drove this last Sunday in my stock 4 door 2016 rubicon. A little snow & Ice in a few places but not bad. Rocky at the start but gets easier the further you go.

Did the trail today in my stock 2018 Tacoma TRD off-road. Fun little trail! Nothing that pushed my truck too hard. The initial climb from the Gross side has a few flexy/rocky sections that required some line choice, after that the trail eased up. Mostly dry today with a small amount of snow and ice.

Disclaimer!if you follow the GPS you'll come to the start of the trail there's a little turnaround area and the road leads to left with the signs saying no parking gate ahead turn around here. ignore this! there's no closed gate. While you're driving on this road there will be signs everywhere saying no trespassing private property, this road doesn't appear to be private property it is a access road to get back to all the houses that are back here. Just stay on the trail and you'll be fine. Shortly after horse trailer parking the road dirt and really smooth. I just turned around and went back. trail in took like 35min and that was stopping for pictures and waypoint entry.
Trail was moderate but on the EZ side of moderate. Some narrow paths for the first mile maybe.

Good confidence builder for a beginner. Any stock 4x4 with off road tires and no rear sway bar should be able to handle this short trail. Going east to west just after the trail begins there is a rocky rutted climb that will force you to choose a good line if you don’t have a locker. Just up from that there is an off camber where your passenger side will be rock climbing while your driver side is flirting with the edge. The rest is just a power line right of way with some minor wash outs.

Nice little trail. Just let the suspension do it’s thing in a couple of spots and threw around some mud in a few times. Not technical at all but my passengers were thrilled.

For what I was after (a family friendly trail), this was a great trail. I had the family with me, so my 4.5 yr old and 1.5 yr old were entertained and we were able to stop and hike a few places. So, it was more interesting than a fire road, with spots to hike that my wife likes and it’s a short trail (3-4 miles) only about 20 miles or so from our house. Great all around.

(so my vehicle is way overkill for this, there was a stock 4Runner SR5 and a new stock JL Wrangler out there too).

Road from the east was moderately difficult, then for about .75 miles it was suited for a 4x4. then it was pretty tame for the remainder. Over half was a gravel or dirt mountain road.
We also climbed the Twin Sister's PEAK via the trailhead about a mile in. Excellent hike, about 3.1 miles round trip.

Went out at the request of my 4 year old daughter today so we headed on up to this trail. I'd say it was pretty fun with a few minor obstacles. Definitely not the most challanging trail I've been on but it was sure nice to get out and flex the suspension a little bit. I'd probably come back for just a quick day outing. Running a 2011 JK sport with 3.25" lift and 35s.

Cool little trail. Did it yesterday in a thunderstorm but didn't get washed out. You need some clearance for the rocky areas. I mean you might be able to get by but you'd risk bottoming out. Overall it's a fun trail that's close to the front range area.

Good little trail. We came up from the east side and headed on up. Nothing too crazy, but it was a good trail to start the day with.

Fun ,Moderate trail, REALLY! Rocky and one lane for a bit which can be intense. Overall wife and I had a blast, Slow and steady we went ,didn't air down the tires. Driving a 2014 Rubicon Unlimited with a 6inch lift and 35 inch mudders. Would do again and again! Didn't bottom out either..

Drove the trail today. First time on a trail like that, ever. Was alone and it made me a little nervous at times just due to inexperience. My jeep is a rubicon and has 35s with a 4” Tara flex. It handled the trail perfectly! Only issue was a group going the opposite way became an issue.

Today’s method of travel was a Jeep YJ that has a 2” lift but is otherwise stock. (No need to air down the tires.)

Not overly challenging, I’d say moderate is a fair assessment. It’s a short trail and we encountered several tent campers along the way. The perfect place for beginners. I gave it an extra star for the scenery just to get to the trailhead.

I’m a two wheeled adventure fan and this would be way to short and boring for my dirt machine. UTV’s would get bored quickly.

Very fun and not too challenging. Only a couple spots where decent ground clearance was useful.

Great trail; enough obstacles to keep your attention, but nothing too sketchy.
