Yea that's definately it, notice the chains used for steps..
Randy bought it from Kevin, then sold it to Howard at the snack shack, and Howard sold it to one of coalcreek trail maintenance guys, and I guess he sold it again.
Here's a shot of it just as it's flipping in Farmington, NM.

Rattle rock is noted just under the map key with the star. I don't even think Little Mule is noted on any map or numbered.

Basically if you go up the gravel road and hit Trail 15 on the left(pretty cool/short trail), you get to the top of it and you'll be at a gigantic mudhole "playground" sorta thing. At the top of 15 start looking left and take that trail, then take the first right which is not far at all. You'll know it's Little Mule by the pretty F'ing steep drop in. I'd advise dropping in on the far left side as you hafta make a sharp right hand turn at the bottom.

Once you climb Little Mule(super short trail/hill), take your first left....that'll take you to Rattle Rock which will be on your right. You can't miss it. Giant rocks everywhere and you kinda wonder "Where's the F'ing trail START?!?!"....well, that's it.

If you wish to pass Rattle Rock, a trail called Little Schoolbus is the trail you just keep on taking past RR. Pretty cool trail, decently long and will put you up atop a gravel road.

The Stairsteps/Cascades/stair case is kinda sorta represented by the beginning of Trail 3. I can't really tell you how to get to it without confusing the hell out of you. We usually ride Trail 22 out(mile/moderate trail for a daily driver), then once out at the top on that gravel road you go right and the Steps will be on your left...can't miss it.

Trail 39 is known as cadillac hill. I wanna say that railtrail is trail number 40, it drops down off 39 bout 3/4 the way through it. rail trail will put you out on trail 3. Like tony said, pretty sure lil mule aint on map anymore cause ive been noticin a sign that says enter at own risk now.

I think it also has a sign up that says EXTREME DIFFICULTY or something.....yet i've seen some open front/locked rear stuff on 33's make it.

Just kind of a random sign for the area.

Little Mule appears to be "wanting" to grow, though. After the drop in, the optional rock ledge over on the far right(not the climb out spot), seems like people are starting to go over far enough to begin cutting a trail through the small brush AROUND that gigantic rock. It's in its infant stages, but I can see it happening over time.

Quick view of Little Mule(and an idea of the "Drop In")

Windrock cant compare to harlan. Or maybe its cause I live in lenoir city which is 40 min away an ride it at least 2 weekends out of 4 every month. I love harlan an if the funds were there id be there more than I am. I like to hold things wide fkn open an harlan is the place to do that. Windrock has a few spots like that as well. windrock trail39 = harlan mason jar. windrock trail 15 an lil mule = harlan railbed an others like that. Harlan dont have anything like rattle rock or new crawl off trail 16 but it has the slower based crawls like it like lions den an lower an upper rock garden. windrock rail trail an atomic ridge = harlan... if you put cremepuff, ponyhill, middle rock garden, an big perm together. Rail trail isnt real steep but it takes large trottle an very capable driver to make it all the way without pullin cable.

You would be surprised how tough yota axles really are man an the motor an t cases as well. Usually it may be just somethin gay that happens that can be fixed in 30 min an if it aint that then its somethin major bad that happens to all axles.
TG drive flanges, big brakes,trunion bearin eliminators, arp hub an knuckle studs, TG six shooters, full hydro, 30 spline longs, TG high pinion, HP detroit, 5.29s an a few other small things an as for the rear 5.29s, spool, stock axles, rock assult housing.
Tcases- dual both 21 spline, TG 4.7 in back, longfield output
thickwall drive shafts with creeper joints all way round
A stock 22r will float the valves around 6900 rpm. Hold it there till valves float an put it in fastest gear it will pull hard (2.28 first in mine) an watch the F out or youll get run over!!
Oh an a 425 impco propane unit is a must!
Thats all you need to know.

I wheeled the shit outta mine all last year, HARD, an all I broke was a tie rod, rod ends, an a rear pinion! This year since Ive redone mine, I started drivin it even harder an so far I have broke a six shooter knuckle an a rear pinion. also blown a few TG 4 link creeper joints apart. Once you put all the hardcore parts like i listed above in one, usually the only thing that breaks is a ring an pinion.

Just got back from a good DAY trip on Trail 9 and Trail 12. These were previously ATV/UTV only trails that have been opened up to full size vehicles. Very long trail(s) that criss-cross a river and extremely tight in some spots but a great trail to take if you wanna stay outta the sun. The entrance and exit are the only truly tough spots, but good riding if you're not in a buggy/long wheel base-full width rig. The guys I went with were full width old school Bronco's. Their short wheelbase helped.
