Honestly, if there was something you thought you wouldn't make, there is always another way around.

Though, as Michael found out, one of those was about a mile long!

We had a couple stock JKs out there, disconncted and aired down...that's the main thing. It is pretty easy.

Sliders help....but seriously, I'm on 35s with 4" of lift and I had to try REALLY hard to scratch up my sliders (like purposely crawl up a boulder and slide down on them). And I've done this trail without sliders.

I think the stock rubis had 32s on them....but I've seen stockers do it.

My LJ w/ 4" lift and 33" tires hit the Tcase skid once and never saw my sliders go by. It was a great trail to gain some experience on.

Thanks, BCarr for posting the run here. I had a great time w/ you guys.

i ran it in a stock LJ on 30" bfg at's. i dont remember that section in the video but i did everything else fine. wasn't even disco'd or aired down haha. even managed to get my buddy's 07 taco on 31s i think through fine, no harm done anywhere. fun trail and if theres something you think is too much for your rig theres a way around it like they said. im sure your ZJ would do fine on it.

there was alot of areas that these guys go over instead of around. the main road takes you around most of the more twisty and step up stuff. Good times!

Cleghorn has so many turns and trails....it is just a great place to go for half a day, no matter what difficulty you're looking for.

Yeah I found out that the bypass around the V-Notch is a good mile and a half I have 33s on a 2in suspension spacer and 3 in BL... Equals ZERO ARTICULATION!!! AND I didn't air down or disconnect at all! I did ok on most of it, a little teetering here and there. I bypassed the stuff that I thought for sure I couldn't make. All in all, a great trail for beginners or advanced drivers.
Just a heads up- my laptop died on me, so I won't be on for another 10 days or so. I have a few pics and vids of the trip, but they're stuck on the dead guy. I'll post them here as soon as I can get them up.
