I'm a Colorado native (born in Boulder, raised in Arvada), and just started wheeling earlier this year. I wheel a 2000 UZJ100 Land Cruiser, with a 2.5" OME suspension lift, Slee SliderSteps, an ARB combination bar front bumper, Slee rear bumper, and a Comeup Winch. I'm also a Toyota Land Cruiser Association member, and frequently wheel with the local TLCA chapter, the Rising Sun 4x4 Club.

Had a blast on this trail. We had three rigs in our group - a '98 4Runner (3" lift, 33" tires), a '93 80-series Land Cruiser (2.5" lift, 33" tires) and a '99 100-series Land Cruiser (2.5" lift, 33" tires). The first section of the trail is pretty narrow through the switchbacks - really no room for passing any oncoming traffic. Luckily, we didn't see any other rigs on the trail, just a few hikers here and there. The major obstacle at Waypoint 9 isn't really much to write home about - just pick a good line and you'll be fine. The second obstacle at Waypoint 10 could be perilous if you pick the wrong line. Coming down the obstacle is much easier than going up, and I'd recommend a spotter for both, depending on your skill/experience level (though, based on Ryan's prior review, I'm sure 37" tires make this obstacle pretty easy...lol). The bypass for the Waypoint 10 obstacle is definitely doable, but will likely require a few multi-point turns, and watch out for the steel post that sticks 4-6" out of the ground near the edge of the cliff (mentioned in the previous trail review). Definitely make sure you watch your speed on Riverside Dr. through the town of Raymond. The locals are very friendly, but don't take kindly to those blasting down the street, as there can be a decent amount of pedestrian traffic on the street. Make sure you follow the MVUM, stay the trail, and steer clear of private property. Also, there is a decent spot for airing up/down on the side of Riverside Dr., just off Highway 72 (Peak-to-Peak Highway), where you could easily fit 6-8 rigs. I've been wheeling this trail for a number of years, and have yet to have a negative run-in with any property owners/locals, so be courteous and respectful, and you'll be fine!
