Default Tin Cup Trail

How is this trail for a first run with a 2010 4runner?

We've never gone out and would like an easier trail to have some fun on.

actually too easy it what I wanted to hear.

I got the wife a 2010 Toyota 4Runner Limited and I'd love to be able to show her what its capable of. I didn't want anything too gnarly to scare her off.

We will probably take a run up there this weekend and have some easy fun.

seriously our county maintained dirt road to get to my parents house looks rougher than that. I wouldn't even think twice about sportin' down that road in my grand prix to get to a fishing hole....

Yep! That's the idea. Hell, I think it's even worded kinda like that on the DNR's website.

That's why I don't wheel public land anymore.

Wow, that is a bit wide open huh? We could definately take our Subie down that....and a lot faster ;)

Still will be fun to get a bit of mud on the T4R.

Tin Cup and the other DNR trails in that area are boring. There wa a section with some deep water a couple springs ago when we went. It would be more fun in a Scoobie.

If I would have sasw this earlier, I could have put you in touch with a couple guys that were taking some easy stuf over on that side of the state today.

You aren't the '10 4Runner signed up for the UP Overland Adventure by chance are you?
