Kistler Memorial Highway (Old NC 105) (11/10/2022)
I picked a terrible day to drive this road weather-wise, as a hurricane was coming up from Florida and directly into this area. I had a few hours before the bulk of the rain started dropping. The good news is that I could get into all but one of the campsites because there was not a soul on the road. I would imagine the views are stunning on a clear day, so I will have to go back, darn!
Bearwallow 45: Deadfall (11/06/2022)
This a neat little trail! I don't think it deserves the Most Difficult Double rating, as really a good driver in a stock vehicle could accomplish it. Just a little on the short side!
Bearwallow: Outer Green Loop (11/06/2022)
If I rated all the green trails separately, I would say the section that follows trail 20 would be the best. The entire route, though, felt a little long and repetitive. I enjoyed the whole route, but the blues and the blacks in the park are way more interesting.
Bearwallow 76: The Cooler (11/06/2022)
Loved this one! Super fun wheeling with unique obstacles, and the Cooler... well it doesn't get much more cool than ice-cold air blowing out the side of the mountain!
Bearwallow 23 (11/06/2022)
I am giving this a higher star rating for the scenic value, not the wheeling. Its a tame road, but it is unique in this park section. I would recommend at least checking it out!
Shafer Trail (11/04/2022)
FYI: Shafer Trail Road will close for required maintenance November 7–8 (Monday through Tuesday).
Stone Camp (11/02/2022)
This was an absolute blast. At one point, I saw John's blue 2 door climbing over an obstacle, and with the naked trees, I could see he had only about 10-15' of either side of him where the terrain went straight down. Following the razer edge, the rocks and water holes made this trail very exciting!
Union Springs (11/02/2022)
The ridgeline at the top, I thought was awesome, and the hill climbs to get to it were fun. If you liked Skidmore Fork/Dunkle Hollow, you will probably like this one too, and its a bit smoother. Combing this with Stone Camp, and Flagpole Knob will make for one very epic trip!
Skidmore Fork/Dunkle Hollow Road (11/01/2022)
Driving it as written in this guide, once past the lake, the trail turns really nice, more of a two-track and narrow road with tons of camping and opportunities to see running water. The climb out of the hollow seems to take forever, and it's narrow and slightly off camber with small embedded rocks sticking out. The terrain change is pretty striking as you climb out, and fall is probably the best time to really see it.
Flagpole Knob (11/01/2022)
5-stars for the view from the knob, but two stars for the trail. The trail was fairly boring. If you want to see the knob and take a more exciting way in, try going in via Dunkle Hollow or Union Springs to Stone Camp!
Kingston Peak (10/31/2022)
Closed for the season!!!
Rausch Creek Off Road Park: 11 (10/29/2022)
Super fun trail and very scenic. We ran it twice while visiting the park. The JL on 37s had zero issues on this trail. The twisty obstacle was the fun!
Potts Mountain Jeep Trail (10/29/2022)
Loved every minute of this trail. The fog and late fall foliage added a whole new ambiance to the trail.
Rausch Creek Off Road Park: Crawler Ridge (10/28/2022)
Tough tough tough but a rock crawlers dream with all the options!
Rausch Creek Off Road Park: Crawl Daddy (10/28/2022)
For a short trail, its a blast! We took a 2023 JL with a 2.5" lift and 37s up this trail. We couldn't complete the obstacle, but the bypass was still fun and challenging.
Holly Oaks ORV Park: Lower Main Loop (10/26/2022)
What a fun exploratory route through the park! There are other more challenging aspects on this loop we didn't get to try due to the weather, so I look forward to returning when it's dry!
Holly Oaks ORV Park: North 60 Loop (10/23/2022)
We enjoyed a quick romp through the north 60, which is a new portion of the park. You can choose from mild to wild on this route! The Catwalk and Troubled Road were my favs!
Mojave Road (10/17/2022)
Still issues from the monsoon damage: Washout on east side of Paiute Range (35.0905677, -115.0028316) make road impassible to all vehicles. Basically: CLOSED at Soda Lake and Paiute Gorge. Other portions of the road are open.
Dripping Springs (10/16/2022)
I can't believe I have never driven this road until now. After visiting all the points along the Green River in the north, we took this road to move further south and check out the river from those points. This road was a nice surprise. It is one of the few roads in the Labyrinth Rim area where you can be in the trees. You can see the recent rains have really rough the trail up.
Loch Lomond (10/15/2022)
The upper gate closes on 10/15/22.
Yankee Hill to Central City (10/10/2022)
We have updated the rating to better reflect the current conditions. It is going from a 3-3 to a 4-5. A new and updated trail guide for this will also be coming out by 10/30/22. Otherwise, air those tires down and enjoy before all the snow flies!
White Rim (10/07/2022)
The slide has been cleared and open all the way through now.

Shafer Trail (10/06/2022)
Be advised: Shafer Trail Road will close for routine maintenance October 24–27, October 31–November 3, and November 7–10 (Mondays through Thursdays). During this time, the road will reopen for public use at 4 pm Thursdays and remain open through weekends, closing again at 7:30 am Monday morning.
White Rim (10/06/2022)
open via Potash or Shafer Trail Road only; closed via Mineral Bottom Road. Expect delays and large equipment on the west side as road crew makes repairs (October 11-14 and 17-20). Exercise caution and expect more difficult than normal driving conditions due to mud and washouts
Redbird 3 Green (09/30/2022)
I drove this trail after several days or weeks of dry weather in a stock Rubicon. It was relatively mud free. It is a beautiful drive through a mostly hardwood forest with some pines. The short and steep hills were the most fun to drive. The ground was relatively soft, and I could see this trail being more difficult in wet conditions simply due to traction. If I were out here in wet conditions, I would undoubtedly want to have mud-terrain tires vs. all-terrains. Overall, it's a really easy trail to drive, but route finding was difficult. I first attempted coming in from Waypoint 2 and driving counterclockwise, but key signage was missing to know which turns to make. I turned around, then drove it clockwise, where the signage was much easier to follow.
Redbird 5 Blue (09/30/2022)
Super short, but beautiful! Its a nice add on for 5 Green, its not much more difficult.
Redbird 5X (09/30/2022)
I took this by mistake. I followed the signage for blue, apparently never saw where the blue came in and ended up taking X all the way. It's super short, but the mudhole with all terrains proved difficult; I needed to pull the winch line to get through. I had the clearance with 33s, but just not the traction. Had I had mud terrains, I am pretty confident I would have made it though no issues.
Redbird 0 Green North (09/30/2022)
I was a little surprised at the erosion obstacles, but nothing the Wranger couldn't handle. I did use 4 low to creep over a few of the deeper ruts, and on one, I did scrape my crash plate as it took it a little to "head on".
Redbird 5 Green (09/30/2022)
So short, but yet very scenic. The picnic area was really nice as I had the place to myself. Deer kept coming up to me as I sat there, and the birds sang away. The road is very simple, and I drove it all in 2wd. If it was really muddy, you would want 4wd perhaps to make it up the gentle hill.
Byrd Bay Road (09/28/2022)
I liked the fact that there was no cemetery on this road. I also liked the camping at the end, but I could see it getting very crowded or not so fun if a group decided to come in and camp right next to you.
Two Hearted Landing (09/16/2022)
I have been on this road a few times. Each time I have, its been a bit different. I wanted to create a trail guide for this one for those looking to make their way to Crisp Point. This is a good example of what the other two-tracks in the area are like.
Emery Road (09/16/2022)
I enjoyed this road and the few pre-disturbed campsites along the way were really nice. I enjoyed this over taking the DNR route because there was less side by side traffic on it.
Crisp Point Lighthouse (09/15/2022)
The road driving in very tame but extremely beautiful the Crisp Point Lighthouse is just the icing on the cake. You can also take roads that split off this one all the way out to White Fish Bay.
Naomikong Point (09/13/2022)
I was super disappointed that the road did not go all the way through like the maps showed. However, the beach was beautiful, and I ate one of the better peanut butter and jelly sandwiches I have ever made while enjoying a secluded beach, all to myself. I would recommend this trail if passing by.
Shafer Trail (09/11/2022)
Recent rains have created more erosion issues. AWD or 4WD is recommended.
Potash Road (09/11/2022)
Recent rains have created more erosion issues. AWD or 4WD is recommended.
Silver Lake Sand Dunes (09/11/2022)
I took a couple of hours to experience what Silver Lake Sand Dunes were all about! I have to admit, it was a little too fast-paced for my normal style, and vehicles were everywhere, going in every direction. However, I was very impressed with the level of organization of the park and loved the free air at the end. You will most likely agree that the free air at the end is about the fastest air-up you will ever have! The scenery was beautiful, the driving is fun, and I recommend going here if you want the true sand experience!
Rimrocker (09/01/2022)
It is reported that a detour in place between Waypoints 70-72 near Moab is due to a washed-out portion of the road. As with all desert trail areas, plan on changes due to recent monsoons.
Crystal City (08/08/2022)
The trail has re-opened!
Mojave Road (07/31/2022)
All roads in the Preserve are closed due to road damage from the recent monsoons.

Washington Quaker Bridge Road (07/28/2022)
I enjoyed Quaker Bridge Road, particularly its history. The water holes made it more interesting. Overall, I like the Pine Barrens as a coastal forest.
Jericho Mountain Green Trail - East (07/27/2022)
This was a fun loop to take, much more relaxed than the other green section. I would recommend this to anyone looking to dip their toes into very minor rock crawling. If you like this one, and want more, take on the Green Trail West!
Maxwell Friendship Road (07/27/2022)
A couple of firsts for me. My first time in the Pine Barrens and my first time seeing a cranberry bog up close and personal. I can see why so many people cherish the Pine Barrens as it is a unique place, really nothing quite like it from all the places I have visited across the country.
Jericho Mountain Green Trail - West (07/26/2022)
What a fun trail, but wow was it a mental challenge for me in my JLU diesel with an Ursa Minor top and an awning. I was really wishing I was in a little 2-door! The turns required thought and patience with such a big rig. Glad I had 35s, but my 35s really measure 33". I got my sliders a few times pretty good and my control arms, but no damage other than some coatings removed. Overall, I think this is a great trail for anyone beginning rock crawling - just be patient and pick your lines.
Kingston Peak (07/15/2022)
Open for the season! Please stay on the trail and pack out more than you packed in!

Caffey Truck Trail (07/14/2022)
I think this trail would be a blast in wet weather! Plenty of good spots where water will pour over from the bogs and marshes. The forested parts were great as well.
High Rock Bay (07/12/2022)
I love this trail. I have done it twice now. Once in late spring when it was very wet, and then in early July when it was dry. I prefer the wet trail over the dry trail. Although it looks great to camp at the end, remember, it's a small area and you could have a noisy neighbor right next to you. Be sure to try midweek for camping over a weekend!
Chinns Lake (07/11/2022)
All reports indicate it’s clear. As always, stay on the trail and do not drive around snowdrifts.
Corkscrew Pass (06/22/2022)
I have always wanted to run this road and finally got my chance. I ran it in the opposite direction of the guide and saw two other vehicles on the way. The switchback portion, Waypoints 7-8, were narrow but flat and with good visibility of any oncoming traffic. In a JKU, two or three of the switchbacks were two-point turns. Around Waypoint 3-4 was interesting geography formed by the tailing piles and what looked like must have been a wicked landslide a few years ago. While easy, you have to be comfortable with narrow and switchbacks
Devil's Canyon (06/15/2022)
Open for the season! Please stay "on" the trail!
Barbour Fork (06/15/2022)
Open for the season! Please say on the trail!
Loch Lomond (06/15/2022)
The lower gate is now open. The upper gate, that allows driving to the lake, will be July 15th(as scheduled) unless the snow isn’t melted in time.
