My family's annual camping trip is coming up and I'm trying to find an easy trail that my one brothers late 90's stock 4x4 suburban and my other bro's dodge mega cab 4x4 can run and not tear up. I was thinking Bald Mountain the easy way but having never wheeled that area I wanted to get a heads up. Good trail for those vehicles? Something better in the area? I've got an '89 Wrangler with a 3" lift and 31's. Also, any recommendations for an intermediate mountain biking trail around Shaver Lake area my 14 yr old son and could hit?
Thanks in advance,

what dates are you looking at? hav'nt been up there this season yet, but even tho this was a mild snow year, there can be snow drifts in places. it is close to 8k in elevation. maybe someone who has been up there in the last couple week can chime in. I don't believe any other 4x4 trails are open yet other than Bald.
as far as wheel'n. as was stated, the main road to the tower coming off Tamarack rd. is very doable with stock 4x4's.
