Absolutely love ️ these first is my favorite!!!Slick Rock has gotten much more difficult over the last 5-10 years. Your rigs should be capable of the trail, but it definitely takes some offroading experience to avoid damage. I agree with the above suggestion to run Corral Hollow (specifically the eastern section) first, Slick Rock is significantly more difficult than that.
If you do run Slick Rock I suggest heading in from the southern end near Utica Resevoir. There are some nice camp sites after you cross the bridge over the river, and the most difficult obstacles are shortly after that. The first obstacle is a large step at the end of the campsite, keep walking about 5 minutes past that and you'll come across a steep and rocky downhill section. This is usually the most difficult part of the trail for most rigs.
Ooops.. plus his bumper cover fell off on the first step and he tore one of the welds on a rock slider.
Yup. I had no issues on a 3” lift and 35’s without armor. I found the trail easy/moderateGreat pictures, thank you! Organizing a trip there with my group in a couple of weeks! Looks like most got through without monster tires. A lift and sliders seem to do the trick there??
We ran Slick Rock last Saturday and there is no snow on the trail. There are a couple of small muddy spots at the Lake Alpine side but they will probably be dry in the next week. As discussed in earlier posts, the new trail reroute section is now the most difficult section of the trail and will effectively block the easy access to the camping area on the slabs by the creek for many milder built rigs.Did you do the run recently? Looks like there's still snow on the trail!
Man, wish I can join but have prior arrangements. Maybe next time, what trail is planned for Sunday?I've heard most people say they started at the southern end instead of by Alpine Lake. Any particular reason why? I'm leading a small group up there Saturday (all first timers) and just trying to get info on what's best for the group. Thanks!
