It's a heavily used OHV area, so it does see erosion from offroaders. Like the utility tower hill the face of that is way dug out at the base, which makes it a lot of fun trying to climb it

After they blocked off some of the funner stuff im glad its getting a little more interesting. Im not 100% sure but has anyone noticed that big hill open again? i think ive heard it been called pucker hill. The one right before the sharp right that will get you on 3 wheels if you're not careful. I didnt pay too much attention but i thought i saw they took off the fence

Ah gotcha, I only saw the backside of it coming the easy way. But i know where that sections starts where you go right for the hard trail going west to east where there is a small mound you go over wasnt blocked off, but i didnt see any further. Maybe ill make a quick trip soon

Cleghorn after a good rain is an adventure.

I think i ran the spot your calling pucker hill after the big rains we had at the beginning of the year. I was the first one down it after the rain, no other tracks to be found. It was my first time at cleghorn and the buddy I was with bypassed this section. I was wishing I had bypassed it also .

As I descended the more hard core this section became. There was one spot where 3' and 4' rain rutts came together right before about a 6' or 7' drop off. I was in over my head on this section but there was no turning back at this point. Love that feeling . On the big drop off I was bull dozing with my front bumper at yhe bottom of it, almost a front bumper stand. My buddy was down at the exit of this section on the radio saying there was 3' and 4' drop offs and that I should turn back. After a 6' / 7' drop I wasn't to worried about 3' and 4' drop offs.

A word to the wise, disconnect your sway bar before starting down this section. Right before I took this section something told me to. I was stretching my 4" lift to it's limits.


Seriously though, had a blast and can't wait to go down that section again.

You can keep taking pilot rock all the way to deep creek and run dishpan springs for some smaller to medium sized rocks. you can take 2n17x for a warmup

That isn't pucker hill, but definitely fun, Cleghorn is a blast in the rain or snow

This section had a sharp right turn near the bottom, and then another right turn coming off the trail back onto the fire road. I think it was the second to last section of Cleghorn if your rolling east down towards the lake.

I guess a lot of people roll in these sections on the East side of Cleghorn?

For you guys that run this trail often it's probably no big deal but the first time for me was an adventure. LOL

Cleghorn is a great flex tester and yes towards the end it has some cool off camber stuff that you want to pick a good line on. Goof up and it goes on it's side
