Barlow Road Trail? Mt Hood

Anyone been up to the barlow road trail? I've heard of a few people going up there but personally have never been. Ive heard that its pretty mild and just a dirt road but idk. Im itching for something new besides browns camp that isnt too far, im in the portland metro area.

Oregonewolf and myself tagged along with some others and drove this trail weekend before last. It is pretty mild but more then just a dirt road. I would say it ranges from easy dirt road to easy/moderate with a few up hill area's and couple tight turns.

Oregonwolf ran it in a stock YJ.

It is a lovely drive with a little fun thrown in. Oh and can't forget the history lessons along the way :-)
If you are looking for hard core off-roading this would not be the road to take.

I posted the run information at: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f314/...61/index2.html

Hope to see you there, it will be a fun and relaxing day. I don't really have any pictures of the trails themselves but they are easy to moderate compared with Browns Camp standards.
