This might be a good one for the "Stocker" crew to come out and play. I know there was a thread about the new guys wanting to do something tame. I don't mind doing something tame.

No worries. I've been on 12 trail runs this year, so they all seem to run together at times!

Open trails....
Lets see, there is a few.

Slaughterhouse (always open)
Saxson Mountain (perhaps open)
Yankee hill (snowed in but play in snow)
Carnage Boulder (not my favorite)(I won't do this trail again, what a dump)
Twin cone (might be open)
Kelly Flats (a long way to go)
Crystal/Moody Hill (a ways away also)

Out of all I listed, only Slaughterhouse and Twin cone are stock rig doable...(and twin cone only barely and without snow)

Got me...
Lets do something though....

At this point....Slaughterhouse????

LHC isn't a bad trail IMHO - just Carnage is the super-crappy part

Snow would be fun to play in but with these 60's & 70's I think the flowers are going to start blosseming again here soon

Kelly Flats would probably require the stock vehicle to take the bypass...it would be fun to get it up heart attack hill though Thats an obstacle that requires good tires for sure... Aside from the Chutes, those are the only two real obstacles on there...

I've never run Kelly Flats or Twin Cone, so I don't have any real opinion there. I know Slaughterhouse can be done with a stocker, but I think with all the ice up there, it might be hard. Just from the last trip report I saw, SH had a lot of ice on the back side...

I'm not sure on KF, but from the pics I've seen, it looks like a fun trail.

KF takes a long time to get to for the two obstacles. The two ones are fun though and I bet you would love the Chutes...1/2 of the "trail" is run on graded dirt roads

As long as someone doesn't bust up their fuel pump wiring, I'm sure that the "Hill" can be run in a short amount of time!
