The long water crossing is hard pack. I busted a tab off the D35 yoke and lost the driveshaft a few minutes before the water. I did the crossing and the rest of the trail in front wheel drive ( with lockers)
This is the first obsticle that scares people into useing the go around. Our club uses the strict policy of NO GO AROUNDS !!!

THe last Jeep in this video is open/open but I dont recommend it on OFR
People using the go arounds is what is going to close OFR.
People will get to the first obstacle and think.. Holy crap.. I can't drive up that.. then veer off and drive through the woods. They may do that three or more times along the course of the entire road and then come back and say.. "Yeah, I drove OFR"
Its going to be sad to see it go.
Ma bell is a fun trail too with plenty of play areas. Its fun going back down
Ive been to ma bell also very fun trail, i just wanted to try someplace different next time i make the trek to western, MA.
Also toxicturtle im fine with crossing water, theres a trail near me in NH that has 2 puddles one is usually around 24-30 inches deep and the other is usually 30-60 inches deep, i went through it once when it was about 45 inches deep and thats when i realized that i need to stay out of that one for a little while in the spring time.
Anyone know who the frelling idiot was that cut the tree down at the first obstacle? People have managed to deal with that tree and rock as it was since forever, and now some dildo decides life is too tough? If I saw that going on, his next of kin would be getting a phone call. I know 99.999% of you know this, but NEVER permanently dork with an existing trail unless you own it.
