We did Metberry last weekend;
The trail in was much worse than it used to be (might actually be a challenge/scary in a few spots for open vehicles/inexperienced drivers, and there is one spot where vehicle damage could occur), but the sand hill was much easier (this will change, I am sure, after some open vehicles have spun their tires on it). The sand hill has had the easier route around the rock closed and has been narrowed with cables. The cabin is completely gone but many trees still remain green at the bottom near the river.
I'm glad its open now, and wonder why it was ever closed, much of the trial is unchanged.
We might decide to camp at the bottom over labor day (just for old times sake) but the lack of additional close wheeling in the area kind of counts against such a decision.
...a well prepped, well driven, vehicle should do well in any terrain, including the highway.
Carburetors became obsolete during the last century... do what ever it takes to get fuel injection...It makes bigger grins off road.
