cleghorn tips and requirements

I been thinking about going to cleghorn for a while now I'm starting to get a little bored of azusa. I was wondering if there are any requirements regarding your rig. I'm currently running 32s with a 2 inch lift and i dont think i have lockers would I be fine? All feedback and tips about the trail is greatly appreciated. Also question when is it open weekends or daily? Entrance fee?

Cleghorn is just twisty. There is a down hill part that says "don't go" but it's not bad. There's another off camber spot coming down that people try to avoid the rock but if you do there's a chance of flipping so you should put your passenger tire on that.

Also on almost every part is a by pass. They have every single way marked so you know if it's moderate or hard. Their black diamond marks are usually way under that. There isn't a black diamond on that trail.

You can do most of Cleghorn with a stock Jeep, so 2" should be fine. Do you have rock (side) rails?

Cleghorn doesn't close and doesn't cost anything. There are some sections that were recently closed, but mostly the harder sections. So you will see some fenced off areas on the West side of the mountain.

Best to go with at least one other person, don't go by yourself.

I don't have rock rails. Everything is stock besides lift and tires. I was originally planning on going with somebody else I've had people tell me to go with other people that drive only thing is I don't know many people with a 4x4. Also I was told to dissconect sway bar links I feel very sketchy about this since I've never done it reading up on it saying it could be bad if you don't know the capabilities with it off is it that much of a difference?

Is this rock noticeable?

A person was just killed about 2 days ago when they rolled down a hill and always going wheeling in a group

The mind is like a parachute, it works better when open!

Yeah, it's basically in the middle but for some reason people try to go around. It's not that big of a rock.

Also, if you don't disconnect your sway bar links, especially out there, that won't be good. It's twisty in most spots and if you stay connected, you are going to be on 2-3 wheels a lot with chances of flipping. Whoever told you don't disconnect is wrong.

Unclear if they were on a side trail or the fire road. Sounds like they were going too fast lost control.

Rails aren't required, just good to have. I did Cleghorn a few times when I had a bone stock 2012 JKU. I did most of the trail, skipped a few sections. I had some pin stripes, but no body damage.

Up to you if you want to try it without rails. I've seen people hit the rocker right under a door and not be able to open it afterwards. Didn't see this on Cleghorn, but there's always the possibility of damage.

I don't know of any runs for Cleghorn right now. Definitely good to go with a a group though. Now that it's FINALLY cooling off, there will be more Cleghorn runs. Usually in the summer everyone goes to Big Bear.
