Gotta say, the best trail there is 'pack a lunch'

I swear to god, it was BUILT for my pathy, i fit through the trees and corners by a hair, only skidded over something twice...had just enough clearance to get over everything, even all the big branches and logs! :D

I did, unfortunately, maul my rocker panels again..lol

Hey Ron,
Thanks for building the trails, took my son up yesterday with the wife's escape. My son can't wait to get our tj restored and get back up there.
Was all good til she saw video of her car on trails. But we'll sneak it back up again anyway.
Looks like you are going to build a long existence up there.

I absolutely love the Pack A Lunch trail, but the new Python trail is awesome. Congratulations Jeff on a well built trail. Someone had mention that the wife would have never let me try Python, but now she'll play hell to try and keep me off of it.

Plenty to do with a big truck. Some are tight but plenty of open things to try as well. We have a guy runnng a 1 ton ford with 35 that runs a lot of stuff. and one on 38's
and we have mud that is great for you as well.

I think its more a question of wheelbase, cause my pathfinder only fit through some of those corners by inches, i could easily fit through width wise for the majority of the track, but when i got to the corners, the trees were set just right, that i barely had enough room to try and go through, back up about 6 inches, and rub by the tree in front w/o damaging anything....but i also don't like damaging the body, so i guess its all up to how much your willing to damage it...

Plus, jeeps are tiny ;)

Our jeep is bigger than your pathfinder and it makes it through "Pack a lunch" Plus last weekend the Hummer group along with a old wrecker went down it. If wasn't a cake walk but they did make it...
