Austin area - Hidden Falls Adventure Park?
Howdy everyone, just getting a feeler for getting a group of people together that would like to go rock crawling at Hidden Falls off 1431 right before Marble Falls. I've been out there a few times now (only 4) and would like to hit the trails out there some more. I've only got a 2012 2dr Rubicon with a Mopar/Jeep electronic sway bar skid plate, Mopar/Jeep Dana 44 sliders, Mopar/Jeep tail light covers, VDP stub caps, 1 3/4" daystar spacers front/rear, 1.5" spidertrax wheel spacers and 285/70/17 BFG KM2s.... but I can make it through a lot of the trails out there. I also have taken my 2000 Wrangler on a 2" lift, 33x12.5r15 Procomp Xterrains and XRC bumpers with factory 2.5l, 5-speed and Dana 30/35 axles out there, and made it through Midnight Run (level 4 at the time last year, now its rated at a 5 from washing out more) and Bronco Buster (level 4 as well) without any issue except kissing my rear bumper on the 2000 once. I've taken the Rubicon through several 3's out there and down one 4 (might have been part of a 5, we went down it though not up since we couldn't make it that way).
That said, pretty much anyone with a factory JK with bigger tires (not even needing a budget boost) you will make it through level 3 and some 4 trails no problem.... lockers not needed like the park claims, and you wont break anything as long as you know how to wheel.
I was hoping to get a group of people that would like to go hit some trails for a few hours sometime coming up. They even have camp sights out there so maybe we can even get some camp out thing going, its cool spending the night out there because you can go driving around/wheeling until midnight (so make sure you have your KC's wired up!).
Let me know what you guys might be interested in doing, there's quite a few miles of easy trails to crawl and the terrain is pretty awesome looking as well. Its a 3000 acre park, and its only $20 a vehicle for a day pass and then a small fee for any extra passengers. I think a camp sight is around $20 as well. To top it off, if for some reason you decided rock crawling the Wrangler wasn't fun enough you can rent ATV and dirt bikes for not TOO expensive ($90 for two hours) and have many miles of trails to ride on that are ATV/dirt bike only.
