Bill Moore Lake (09/17/2022)
The more difficult rating for Bill Moore is most certainly justified. Whoopdie Doo #2 is a much bigger challenge than in the past. The switch back just afterwards is also a challenge. Be careful and choose your line carefully. A new Frontier Pro 4 was able to make it in and out without issue, so it can be done by most 4x4s with good tires. Once you get to the lake, boy oh boy are you in for a treat. The lake is absolutely beautiful. Fun times!
Caribou Creek (North) (08/08/2022)
Ran the trail yesterday and really enjoyed it. However rutting is worse than described. If you have lockers, use them on waypoint 8 and 9. The mud holes on Waypoint 8 were as deep as 2.5 feet. I could feel my wheels spinning at one point but powered through it. I ran lockers through the rest of the mudhole without issue. I also highly recommend MT tires. As someone else has pointed out, waypoint 9 can be dangerous. It can be pretty off camber and potentially cause a rollover. There is also a spot where you can potentially bottom out with a pickup or Wrangler Unlimited with stock tires and no lift. If you pull to the right, there is a fairly steep climb you can use to get out of the mudholes but that's where you can get off camber a lot. The other bypasses are still blocked off with logs. Between waypoint 10 and 11 are some very deep ruts that you'll want to straddle as much as possible. Even with a 3" lift and 37s, I ended up dragging my rear bumper at one point.

The trail is open all the way up to Yankee Doodle Lake but there is a large snow bank that will prevent you from getting past unless you have a SxS or 4wheeler. Don’t forget that the trail between waypoint 1 and 2 is very narrow with no place to turn around or let others pass you. I had to back out due to another driver trying to come back out with a small teardrop camper. I’m guessing that driver ran into that snow bank and was forced to turn around. I advise avoiding this trail until that bank had cleared.
