Drove part of the Lake Isabeal trail today. Thanks to Cryslr for the directions. We didn't make it to the log bridge, we got just past the section with the big rock slab before the trail gets extremely smooth when my buddy lost a front u-joint and decided to turn back. Had a lot of fun though, the first decent trail I've been on. Oh, and that u-joint went out due to soft springs and lack of torque rod. His front axle was wrapping bad and overworing that u-joint. I'd like to hit that trail again sometime with my rig a little better set up. Maybe a couple weeks <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Hey Ben I went up the trail on Saturday A.M.
We went to the Log Bridge and then hiked to the lake. It toke about 45 minutes to get up to the lake, but it was well worth it. Lots of fish and nice views. Let me know with a post or e-mail ([email protected]) next time you plan a trip up there. I plan on going back to do a little fishing in a few weeks.

As a side note guys, we are trying to notify everyone of the new name for the area, its now call Reiter Trails, I am sure if you were in the first pit there are new signs stating the new name, All due to the effort of trying to get it turned into an ORV park...
