Made it through today with a lifted long travel TJ and an 18 Rubicon. Didn't need winches, but would have been rough without lifts and probably would have had some damage without armor/sliders. Also, with the overgrowth, you're gonna get some striping if you don't already have some. Fun trail though!

Took a bit longer than expected. Almost got hung up in nearly stock 5th gen 4Runner.

The longest 1.09 miles we ever drove! This trail may be fine for my Land Cruiser when dry, but recent storms made it extra difficult for my rig. We started around 10a m., pulled winch 3 times and did not finish until late afternoon. Great trail, will be back again.

Great trail. Harder than I am used too, but made it with no issues. Only hit the sliders a couple of times and did not need lockers once. Short trail but still took 2 hours to run with little traffic. Running an 06 Hummer H3 with a SAS upgrade 37" beadlocks.

Great trail. Ran it with A 2018 4Runner TRD premium. I have sliders and skids the rest is stock. Pretty serious business in the wife’s suv. I did rub the rear passenger door handle in the squeeze, taking off some paint. That and I dragged the rear valance right off the bumper. Nothing that bad, but serious body damage can totally happen on this trail. My friend was not as lucky or patient as I. He basically took out the whole passenger side of his truck following right behind me.
