I'm hoping to head down this summer. take some time off from work and hit up the rocks. I didn't have a chance to make it there last year and I'm pretty sure I'm going to start going through serious withdrawals if I don't make it this year.

Dont have my delorme book with me but is this west of Kalispell? Looks like fun.

Getting ready to buy a place in Thompson Falls. My wife lived in Missoula for a number of years and wants to move back. Will be up there part time for 3-4 years until I convince the boss I can work from home full time. So far I have only had my wifes XJ and WJ up there. Planning on parking the YJ up there once I have a place. Been only on Forest Services roads in the TF - Trout Creek - Noxon area and Nine Mile area so far.

Yes, west of Kalispell, by Marion. You will have to come up and wheel Blacktail/Wild Bill this summer! It's one of BFG Outstanding Trails and our club has done some great work up there (as well as Skyliner Club from Polson). There are go-arounds so you don't have to get into every obstacle if you don't want to. Our website is a work in progress, but our newsletters are posted under the news tab if you want to see some of our adventures! We just had Snow Bash which was a day run up there . . . www.bigsky4wheelers.com

I have to come up and get my bigger tires this spring. Keep us posted and I'll try to time it to hit a trail with you guys!

Thanks for the pointer to the newsletters. Never done 4 wheeling in the snow (unless one considers the dirt roads I drive daily) but those pictures look great. Both Wranglers are getting major repairs this summer and wheelin in the Grand Cherokee is not as much fun (it is my wifes DD) but I want to do those trails next year.

Whats everyones take on the wild bill trail? Im planing on taking a weekend trip up there after the snow melts. Also how difficult is it? Would it be hard for someone on 31's to keep up?

I run 31's and a stock TJ. I'm a novice driver so I use the go arounds a lot. It's a fun trail. Go to our website www.bigsky4wheelers.com and click under the news tab. There are some pictures within the newsletters, most of which are of the Wild Bill Trail.

Looks like fun. When would you say it would be snow free up there? or at least mostly snow free.

late in the season... I run 33"s front locker and 4" and I can run a lot of the material; most if I'm feeling macho. I use mud terrain tires too. Air those down and you do well in the snow even. if you have all terrain 31x10.50 with a ZJ I bet you'd have trouble with the top of the trail until june-ish. Laurie probably has a better idea though of snow melt up there. The club is awesome and the trail is great. Highly recommended.
