hmm might try and have to make it....just wondering are you guys going to be out there rain or shine?

Sorry that I haven't gotten around to answering any questions but I pinched a nerve in my back and was out of town on Vicodin Airlines. Yes we will be working rain or shine. No you don't need a rig to come to the work party because someone always has a seat. I hope to get to meet some new wheelers out there and I can't wait to wheel the trail again.

Question

So I hear the trail is not full width friendly. Please clairify for some of us. Are full size trucks (K5's) not allowed or allowed but expect body damage. For those of us who don't care about damage can we get though without killing trees? I want to go, but dont want eveyone pissed at me

Any rig should expect body damage on this trail if you are not paying attention. Right now there is no width restriction other than the obstacles them selves, kind of like gas through a funnel or eggs through a hen. So bring your K5 and be a part of a great trail. Bring some friends and then we will have more time for playing after the work party. Camping is free at Benson Snow Park.

I hope a lot of help shows up because the more users that help the better the trail will be. See you all there.

You can be the first with an FJ60 with a removable windshield

Like Rockaholic said, any rig should expect body damage, but hope for the best. It all depends on driver skill, tire placement, etc. a Jeep may take damage against a tree or rock, and a K5 may slide through the same spot with 7" of clearance to that same rock/tree. You should definitely come out and try it at least. You can always jockey around and get a better line on stuff so you don't come out with no sheetmetal left, just don't go through at 100 mph and you should be okay. You'll rub some stuff, probably, but it's wheelin'! My Jeep is on 40's and d60's f/r and outside of tire to outside of tire is about 82" on my rig, and there is only 1 or two spots I can think of that are kinda tight for that width. Also, there are a few trees that the very upper parts of my cage just kiss here and there, but it's all on how much you pay attention. The first time through I probably touched 3-5 trees with the upper part of my cage, second and third times through, no rubbin'. Come on down!!

How about the smaller rigs, like a locked and low TJ on 35s? I'm not hard on the skinny pedal, I like to just crawl stuff. Running a hp30 and 8.8 with some other good "small rig" mods on old school MTRs.

I'm still trying to round up some more info. My rig and the guy I'm going with are not street legal. So, we would like to stay off the roads. How long is this trail from end to end? Can a couple decently built rigs make it end to end and back in a day? The parking area pretty secure?

going up and back is deffinately possible, but it depends on your driving and no big setbacks. but i wouldnt expect you to have a problem. for sure get a map tho, they are like~ 50 cents at the hoodoo store.

A TJ on 35's with a d30 and 8.8 will make it through. Some of the hard stuff you can try on the sides of the trail may not be feasible, but the main trail should be okay. You should have a winch for safe measure, though.

Also, you will be able to run the trail to the end and back in a day without breakage. If you don't try the really difficult bump outs, you should be able to get from start to end by 2pm if you start at 9am, and you can come back a few different ways, one way takes about 15 minutes on a fire road back to the parking lot, or you can come back on the upper section of the trail which maybe takes 40 minutes, then run down the road under the ski lift back to the road and bypass the whole lower section and be back in about 15 minutes also (after the 40 minutes to come back on the upper section). The parking lot is large, open, and flat. Secure is a relative term I guess, as it just depends who's wandering through, but it's relatively secure I'd think.

Loopi--Are you going up this weekend? I'd like to go, but have relatives in town, so I don't know if the wife will let me go or not, but I'd sure like to!!

To the others that are going, are you going to run the trail Saturday, or Sunday, or both?

Not sure if I am going up or not...Was going to head up for the day on Saturday and show some of the boyz n galz the trail if they have not been there before...

I am deciding..The weather is supposed to be in the lower 80s here in Bend on Saturday, so it is PERFECT weather for this trail...I will post if I go...

Some of the boundary signs need to be located where you can see them a lil' betta', so keep an eye out for em'...We did get some arrows up on the boundary signs last weekend and a few more tree savers, so that will help...I LOVE THIS TRAIL!!!

We ran this trail yesterday. What a blast! it is one of the best trails in Oregon, hands down. It was very challenging and technical in parts. The full size in our group took some good hits to his rockers and quarter panels, but with good spotting, he made it through most of the trail unharmed. The toyota made it pretty easily, a broken turn signal lense was the extent of his carnage. I ended up twisting off my rear drive shaft 100 yards from the road intersection under the ski lift. So I had to bonzia out in front wheel drive and winching. Hats off to the DC4W! Cant wait to see what they come up with next!
