This trail was amazing! I stopped every couple minutes because there were more pictures I had to take. I was in a 4Runner with a 2” lift and that was helpful. The trail was moderately technical and a decent challenge, it would have definitely been more challenging at stock height.
Pretty cool trail, starting from Alma, we were above tree line before we knew it, didn’t even put it in 4 wheel drive until then. Just past the mine it gets a little interesting, lots of rocks and some offset holes that will challenge open diffs without a traction aid. The mines are cool and the scenery is amazing.
We ran this trail in my 2011 4Runner w/ 2” lift and 31.6” tires. I feel like the descent is a little over-hyped, I didn’t feel my anxiety level go up at all as we went down. I did scrape pretty good at the gatekeeper and on a few boulders in the rock garden; rock sliders and skid plates are a beautiful thing. One of the last switchbacks was a pretty decent challenge as well, I watched another vehicle struggle through it for a while but I pulled right through, I think I found the right line.
I ran this trail with a few family members, they were driving a Toyota Highlander, Chevy Suburban w/o 4 low, and a Chevy Yukon w/ 4 low. The Suburban was the only vehicle that struggled at both the stream crossing and what I’d call the one rock obstacle on the trail. He took a few attempts to get over each. The Highlander took some damage to the ‘skid plate’ underneath. It looks like it is made of fiberglass.
Everyone loved the views and the mines at the top.
