John B and the Hi Los are a great group (they host an awesome poker run every Auguat near markleeville) but yes, that first uphill hard right turn requires some driver attention.

Hope you didn't have to wait too long. I hate being "that guy" on the trail. I hiked the road out on Friday to get a good look at it before trying it on Sunday morning and to get some exercise. We hit the trail at 7am to try to get out before it got too busy, but it was a busy day getting all the vehicles out of there. Our group of wagons had a few trucks with mechanical problems - lockers not working and an alternator out. I was able to make a clean run out in the 4runner without too much issue. The only part that was a bit tricky was that first tight switchback. I think it ended up taking about 3 tries to get on the right line to avoid putting the rear fender into that tree on the right hand side. It was pretty cool of the local club to come down and assist everyone coming out. It really helps move things along.

I'm planning to do it again next year if possible with my schedule. It was a little harder than I had thought it would be based on some reports from the prior year. I guess the snow kinda reset some of the trail according to a few locals. I'm not sure it's worth dragging my FJ40 down there. But I do think I'll probably jump up to something like a 34/35 tire for the trip and maybe set the suspension an inch or two taller too.

jetboy Why not. 2015 4runner TEP. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it as a great idea - but with a great spotter who knows the best lines for wagons and some careful driving in a few places it's do-able. The 1400 mile round trip to/from was a lot nicer than trying to drive it on bias ply TSLs on my trail rig. The only body damage was some scratches on the front bumper cover plastic where I ran into a rock. - Pulled off for lunch and forgot when I got back in that there was a big rock in front of me. Pulled forward and - bam. Otherwise she's still clean. Did pull a winch cable a few times though. And thoroughly tested the skid plates. No mechanical issues - but having a few very capable buggies as a safety net is invaluable in terms of making it fun, not stressful.

Twice Scrambled watched all the clips. Always wanted, and still do, want to a trip with a stock flatty. Looks like fun. Gearing is key

Raleigh79 A small group of us from Vegas went and ran the Con a couple weeks ago, didn't get many pics but it was an awesome weekend.
Happy to report the trail is not as easy as everyone said it was, although Little Sluice is basically filled in so that sucks.

At the Loon Lake sign



Heading down the slab


Couple of random trail pics



Lunch break at Spider Lake


The Soup Bowl


The Bridge



After Cadillac Hill, stopped to take in the view of the Springs below


We ran the trail in one day, about 14 hours on the trail including lunch and breaks. Next time we want to spend a night on the trail then head to Fordyce and spend a couple of days there.

Ah, I see. I do understand the nuisance they could be if they were too close. Its not like they are the quietest things either.
