I did not realize there was an offroading trail up there! I'd totally be up for doing something. Sunday afternoons work best for me right now. Have you ever done the trail before? Would stock Cherokee be able to make it?

Hmm. The one review of it I have heard of said it was an easy trail. From hiking do you think there is much chance of getting hung up on something?

I'd say we need to set a date then. All reports say that it opens mid-august. So does anyone have a preference on when they can do it? Sunday august 26th in the afternoon should work great for me.
