Superstitions Sand Dunes (03/13/2021)
Our club visited the OHV area this past weekend. we had 2 buggies, a LJ on 42" tires and 1 ton axles, my hemi powered JKUR on 1 ton axles and 40" tires, a YJ on 35's, and a JLUR on 35's. me and one of the buggies got out thursday night and did some trails friday. we did the normal jeep trails on the west end of the mountain, played in the sand a little, and came back. saturday we drove out trying to find knock on wood (never did find it) and ended up on a trail that has a sign that simply said 'technical" walk the trail before proceeding. cool trail. rocks in a canyon were keeping it slow and steady until about half way up the YJ popped an axle shaft on the front. the 2 buggies drove to the top of the trail over the epic waterfall at the end and came around as a winch point to winch the yj up the canyon wall. with the sun getting lower, we decided to winch the rest of the group up the canyon wall to save time though I was able to drive my jk up it without the cable. I took exactly zero pics. this area has trails for days, but be careful of the "wishbones" there are 10 of them and some (notably 3 and 4) are extreme. I would need a week to try to see all the trails out here. I think if it were a little closer to civilization it would be much more popular. the sand is fun too.

Great trail. it continues further than you have it on the site but it gets EXTREME. There is a dangerous waterfall followed by a very loose and steep climb if you stay to the left near the top.

the trail is still super tough, but the top section used to be steeper and looser. its not quite as scary as it used to be.

Ran up wrecking ball and took the right through bender alley. Great trails. tough but doable.

plaque rock is harder than ever. there was a collection of broken parts on it that included a 40 spline alloy axle. a large rock is now situated in the V notch at the top of the obstacle. rear steer buggies can maneuver through it but anyone else better be ready to winch their entire undercarriage over it.
