I will offer a class to only you, my friend. Then you can go teach the "formal class".

Well, I still need a backup instructor so you're roped in anyway you look at it.

Headed out to Hidden Falls this coming weekend for my first time. This will be my first time out in my CJ. I've been out of the offroading game since I had my TJ. I had a JK but sadly never had the chance to take it offroad. Any advice for a Hidden Falls newbie? I'm hoping my CJ will do well. I've got 35's, lockers, and a brain. Hopefully that will get me through my maiden voyage.

Welcome!!

Hidden falls is a blast but there are a few bad things to watch out for when being a newbie there.

1. The trail maps are pretty good but it ends there, the trail head signs are crap (if there is even one). There are a lot of trails that intersect at some points and they usually don't have markings there either.

2. Trail ratings are decent at best. Some level 3's can be tough and some can be a piece of cake. I've been down some pretty easy level 5's and some there is no way for my jeep on 33's.

Being on 35's and locked you'll be able to do most things out there and most trails have bypasses on the nasty stuff. Have fun!!

Thanks for those points. Going to cut my teeth this go around and know what needs to be done for trips to follow.

They did some updating to their signs since the last time I was out there. I noticed new signs in a lot of places, especially the park roads. However, there were still some signs that were not up on some of the trails, but its better than it has been in the past.

If you aren't running 40's i would stay off of Snoopy Falls, it used to be a fun trail but it's dug out in the middle and I sealed the deal on anyone being able to straddle the bad spot for now. I had a tire on each side of this whole going over it and the dirt on the passenger side collapsed and i made the hole a lot bigger.

Here's a few photos of the carnage and a couple poser shots.
