Nice Mt. Hood/Sandy area trail

Looking for a nice mild trail to take my Wife and cousin on to go play in the snow a little.
My Wife has never been wheeling, so I thought that I could just take her through a nice trail ride in the snow. My rig is stock as well, so it is not ready for anything major anyway. Thanks!

Thanks phritchey. By mild, I assume a stock ZJ will make it, AND should I get my TC issues fixed first??

ArmyVet717, your ZJ could easily do Barlow trail.

Thanks for the reassurance IslandTZ... Last thing I need is to get big cajones and try something that my ZJ wont make it in!
I will be more comfortable when I get my TC shifting right... That thing is driving me up a wall...

Found a 93 XJ today. 4.0L, 5 speed, 168k miles, 2.5" lift, 31's, on black custom rims. The only issues are a broken rear taillight and the emergency brake lever needs to be replaced because the button broke off. Thoughts???

The Barlow Trail is awesome, but this time of year is a no go. The entrance is just past Government Camp. (Think 8' of snow) This time of year if you want to play in the snow a little, try the forest roads off of Hwy224 past Estacada. You can always find snow if you go high enough, all (or the major ones) the roads are on any GPS, and it's pretty easy to tell if its going to get too deep for you to continue. Take another rig as well.

Cool thanks Rigger!! I will keep that in mind, as for another rig, I am thinking about waiting and going out with a group. Think I will be safer that way. I missed my opportunity to go out Saturday to "TSF" with the Pistons Wild. The mechanic that worked on my rig was leading a trail ride out there... Still have no clue where its at, but one of these days I will find it!

I head out there sometimes. Next time I'm going I'll post up in the PNW forum here and you can check it out. Fun place with lots to do for all kinds of rigs, from stock to built.

Cool, thanks Rigger!!
I am waiting for the weather to warm up a bit so I can work on my linkage issue. Worse case, I take my Durango just to get out of the house to have some fun...

Please let me know the next time you are heading up!!!

Thanks again!

I would, but being my rigs are stock, I think I should go with people who know the trails so I don't get into trouble...

I had an XJ before I got my ZJ, instead of buying another jeep just put a nice lift on your ZJ, my XJ had a 2''bb on 30's and Im about to put a 3.5'' lift on my ZJ with 31's, its so much more comfortable on and offroad in the ZJ

Well zjzach, I had said that once I put mine on craigslist, if it sells I would buy the XJ, if not, it was not meant to be... Well, it obviously was not meant to be... The XJ sold the same weekend I put mine up, so something tells me to keep it and turn it into a kick a@@ trail rig...
I am going with the RC 3.5" and 32"s, nothing spectacular, just a mild/moderate trail rig that my WIfe will not mind riding in.
