I have in-laws coming over on Friday for the weekend.

Have fun! We need some drone footage!

Darn been wanting to do this one but don’t think I can swing it on the short notice. Next time
Yeah it was short notice for me too, I posted it right after I found out about it. I just don’t have anything else going on this weekend 😕

Have fun tomorrow. I wish I could go but the list to button up the midarm install is still quite long. It's an incredible area. I've done a lot of backpacking near there.

This trail is a nice day trip type of trail, not particularly challenging but a nice drive. The trail can be run in a stock Jeep with some difficulty at one obstacle.

Several small creek crossings and mostly shaded, great views from the top of the pass.

The trail is maintained by the Gold Hills Posse 4 X 4 Club and the Forest Service. This would be an awesome MTB Trail, run in the south to north direction as it would be mostly downhill or an addition to Deer Valley Trail. I did not run the Long Canyon leg of the run but it takes you back to highway 50 via Long Canyon which is a rough forest road with some scenery. All in all a nice trail and a shout out to GHP4X4 Club, thanks for the invite.
