Anyone been thru recently? Going to be in the area Thursday afternoon and was wondering about conditions?
I did it two weeks ago for the third time and used 4lo once (JK 2.5" lift 33"AT) running it from max patch towards 40 (so I did it backwards this time?) The one part was tricky because it was pretty slick and had some deep ruts. Really had to find a line and hold to it otherwise you would be screwed and have to start over - unless of course you've got lockers or maybe better traction but again really slick.

Did it with a LC60 and a Grand Cherokee Diesel and all made it unscathed. It isn't a hard trail - just a fun one that'll take 2-4 hours depending on how many times you stop. Be sure to check out the mud hole playground. That's fun with all the big frogs jumping everywhere. Hundreds of them....

Thanks! I've done it before, just not recently and was wondering about conditions since all the rains.

I did it this afternoon and found conditions to be A-OK. As @dougie117 said above, there were some deep ruts. They were at about 1.5 miles north of I-40 that were pretty deep but otherwise, the trail was in good shape. I was in a Tacoma which has 32's and is lifted a couple inches and I drug through the ruts but had no problems elsewhere.

thanks for the update. Trying to talk a buddy into going up there.
