I have been up there a few times, its a couple mile long trail, no real obstacles to speak of, but its very bumpy. Also, much of it is very tight for a jeep and there are mountainbikers and hikers on it. be sure to go SLOW and keep your music down so you can hear hikers and other trail users.

I will warn you, many hikers on that trail do not like that they allow vehicles back there, and will give you dirty looks. Be sure to Tread lightly and stay on the trail. When you get to the sign for the wilderness boundary and the last field, dont go any farther as there are not many places to turn around and the trail gets too narrow for vehicles.

I went last year with my son in his Xterra. It was stock at the time, but made it without any problems. There are a few places you can choose to "make" it more difficult.

I'll second the go slowly recommendation, there are hikers, but for the most part they are pleasant. Be respectful and you shouldn't have any problem. We got out to the turn around and I asked a couple of hikers where I-40 was......

I'd go back with my CJ.

I'd like to go but I'm not off again until the 29-30 as far as weekends go. My work schedule has been all messed up from normal for the last few weeks. Not that you have to wait for me to go obviously.

My hopes of getting into wheeling soon are gone until I get the rust next to my leaf mount taken care of. If anyone local has the know-how and tools and would be willing to help me, let me know. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f11/h...amage-1413520/
