Hidden Falls Adventure Park (Pics Included)

So my buddies and I went out to Marble Falls yesterday and had a blast.

We got goin around 10:30. We started on Midnight Run... It was a pretty cool trail... Then we transitioned right into Bronco Buster. Little did we know that they had just cut the trail the week before, and it was a beast of a trail. It took the 4 of our Jeeps in the group about 3 hours to get about 100 yards. First my buddies CJ got stuck in a hole, then I got stuck in a hole, then my cousins JK Rubi flopped on its side in the same hole. (if you havent figured it out yet, this hole wasnt forgiving) So continuing down the trail, my buddies motor mounts in the CJ7 broke off both sides. Some handy mechanics on the trail helped us use ratchet straps to hold it up just long enough to get pulled off the trail. While my buddy Eric was backing up to pull her out, his front tire came off the bead lock and so he had to change his tire in the middle of the trail. He finished the trail and came back to tell me that there was no way my slightly modified Jeep was getting out of the trails final obstacle. SO... after we get moving finally, we tried to find a alternate path out, but they hadnt cut a bypass yet, so I turned uphill and found the biggest gaps between the trees and put my foot down, I eventually emerged from the foliage and turned up on the access road and met up with the rest of the pack. My buddy Eric bent his antirock bar, broke his side mirror and KC light. Most of the other guys coming off the trail broke something on that trail... It was pretty brutal.

So after getting back to camp, my cousin and I licked our wounds for a short minute, then headed back out before it got dark. We hit up a few other trails and really enjoyed ourselves.

its rough! we all tried to wedge ourselves on each bank of the ditch to get through it, but it was too muddy, we just ended up sliding in... it is most definitely a trail that needs lockers.

Oh no doubt... the end is the worst part though... there is like a V shape structure of rocks that you have to maneuver back and forth on in order to climb, and without lockers on that portion, you are SOL.

Out of respect for my cousin, I chose not to take a picture in front of him. I imagine he took some and will post them online soon, so Ill steal one and post it here.
