I don't really care but preferably towards the end of the week but it doesn't matter at all. I also have the house up there to stay the night in if needed.

Alright so my jeep weighs upwards of 6k pounds, do you think this trail might be a bad idea for me? I see lots of sugar sand, was that a problem for anyone besides the motor home? Other than that my drive shaft is alreadey bent and I don't have much of anything that resembles a body.

All you need is a willingness to drag stuff over rocks. We stopped a few times to walk the trail and pick a line and at the last stop we realized that we could go another 1/4 mile or so, then that's it. So, we turned around where we were. When I get home tonight I'll post the GPS of where we stopped.

Bald tires mean more rubber contact with the rocks; much better.

This is no kind of super trail. As I stated up front we didn't make it public because we had no idea what was up there and didn't want to end up with 15 jeeps all up in a dead end. It's no harder than most of the other black diamond trails we all know about but it is a riverbed so there are lots of rocks of every size.

You'll have a good time with a few crawls and climbs along with some bottom scrapes.


According to the GPS it's about 4.5 miles from where we stopped to split rock.



Take pictures.

I have hiked that area quite a bit, there are a couple of canyons I'd like to see some KOH buggies go through, but 40"s would be a minimum.

No. Unless you can get over 10 foot high boulders.

How many jeeps does it take to move 10' boulders? If it took 1 to move the 1.5' on than 6 or 7?
