Followed .gpx exact (west to east). A couple of washed out section along the way to the trail head (not on White Mountain trail). Must be from recent rain storm up that way. Only a few miles of following .gpx to get to trailhead, second washed out section of the fire-road was impassable. It was very sketchy. We never made it to the trail head. Turned around, headed back out and did Gold Mountain instead.

Just ran the trail with some stock jeeps. It was the easiest I remember it. Even the one required obstacle was so easy it wasn't even noticeable. Only challenging parts are the optional stuff.

The rains/snow this year has washed/rutted out this trail pretty significantly compared to earlier this year, main trail is doable with at least 33s and some scraping. Frustration hill was difficult event for a 3.5" Lift and 37s(had to winch)
