Paradise Divide (06/24/2020)
Trail was open all the way around. I ran it clockwise. Great views, classic single lane shelf road through majority of upper portion. One tight area after the pass, snow on tight area, should be gone soon. Minor damage between parking area and lake. Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, mopar rock rails, additional Chief protection plates, Falken Wildpeak AT3W 265/60R18, OR1 ~9" clearance for most, aired down to 20 PSI. Only bottomed out once, after pass, on eroded drainage crossing. Trail Rating seems correct.
Yankee Hill to Central City (05/26/2020)
My son and I did the trail on Tuesday, west to east in a 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk. We were aired down to 20 psi but didn't use 4-Low. The Trailhawk has air suspension, Off-Road 1 (~9" clearance), Off-Road 2 (~10" clearance). We were in OR1 the majority. Some snow (frozen) in upper parts of the trail, little water but mostly dry. The trail didn't seem to have anything meeting the level 4 rating so I think it is rated correctly. The section 12-14 is more challenging, probably more so if you are climbing (east to west run). The vehicle has rock rails and additional skid plates (Chief Products). We hit lightly in a few places but you probably could have picked safer routes to avoid scraping. The trail was closed (county barricade) at waypoint 20. We were using GIA GPS so no issues. We took Old Stage Road which merges back to York Gulch Road and eventually joins Fall River Road. Great GPX file for directions, good day to be out wheeling.
