Trail Information


University Firepower Part 2 may start out as an easy gravel road but it packs in a few surprises along the way. There are tight, twisty sections in dense forest where it is easy to become disoriented. Never fear though because all dirt paths lead to the end of the trail. Halfway through the trail, explorers are presented with a choice: the high road scrambles up the hill while the low road scuttles around the side. Choose your way wisely based on your vehicle's abilities and the trail conditions because the high road can be unforgiving if a mistake is made. The trail ends near where Cedar Tree trail begins which is an excellent place to head next after finishing University Firepower Part 2.

Ran this trail in our Gladiator & Wrangler 4XE today after the big wind/rain storm of the last few days. Was definitely more of a challenge than expected but a lot of fun. Had to chainsaw two large trees that had come down so it's open and good to go as of now, though I'm sure that will change quickly this time of year. My wife got her first rock garden crawl in. Awesome wheeling on a lazy December day. Great trail to get you ready for cedar tree...
