I always air down. They have an air compressor available at the well house. There's a air chuck sticking out of wall. If you don't bring a hose you can borrow the one at the gate house, but only if someone is there to give it to you.
One more question, do I need to let out any air in tires for stock tires? Just gonna go on the easy trails. If so how much air do I need to let out and do they have a place to air back up?
If your planning on just tooling around on the yellow trails you should be fine. If you find that your spinning to much you can always take them down to 16-18 lbs and you should be good. I wouldn't go below 12 psi on street tires unless your positive there is a place to air up before hitting the road.
Well made it to turkey bay and survived lol. I didn't know that one bridge was out so i had to drive up to the next one just to get over their, and hit a couple of the off roads to warm myself up. I guess the storms knocked down most of the limbs but it was a maze going around all of them and some i had to get out and pull off the roads lol. Checked in turkey bay after couple hours of doing that and didn't know where to start, so i figured trail 1 is trail 1 for a reason. So i cruise on down and see the marker and turn in and drive up a bit and i'm like WOAH this can't be the easy trail, so i turn around and drive back knowing that ii've only drove a couple hundred feet and couldn't be off the trail yet LOL. So scratchin my head i decide to head to #9 trail. And trust me it didn't take long to go to 4wd low lol. I never dreamed of how hard the easy trails would be If these trails don't put a stock wrangler to the test then i won't ever need any upgrades LOL. But i did aight, didn't get stuck or bottom out, though alot of the dips and humps had me worried till i got over em. Now lets talk about hills their Going down i found out how awesome 1st gear is in low. Man sometimes it would even creep down the hills to slow for me lol 2nd gear though seemed to wanna go to fast for me need a 1 1/2 gear hehe. But their were some hills that literally scared the crap outta me going up them. Theirs 2 trails that really got me, and one suckered me in all the way. I wanted to see the silo and after passing the rock garden to find the trail closed i finally found the path to get on B trail. Now remember where i said going down hills was easy, well.... the road to the silo was a u turn trail also LOL Their was one hill going back i swear it felt like i was at 90 degree angle about 3/4 the way up it. So i finally come out at 1 trail ( the mud at the end of it sucked btw, only mud hole i wasn't for sure i was gonna make it through. I tried to missed any mud i could or keep on side on dry land, but wasn't nothing i could do but turn around or go through it). So i was gonna go back to 9 trail when i saw F trail Everything was fine till i came to the hill with 3 paths up it and all three looked very very bad i sat for a while staring, pondering, got out walked to the top and starred and pondered. I finally chose the one on the far right with the big stump sticking out half way up it. I just knew i was gonna slide into it or something but i hung far left the best i could and finally made it up. Anyways after that i had been their bout 5 hours and decided to make my way up the the rock garden again to get a pic sitting beside em, and made my way outta their after that. Spent about 2 hours on the numbered roads and bout 6 hours inside turkey bay, Very fun day, alot of stressed moments and alot of cussing when i came to something and was like are u for real, this is in the newbie trail? LOL I never knew a vehicle could go anywhere like this before stock or modified lol. The pics and videos on the internet do the hills no justice. You guys doing the red and blue trails have balls of steel and are freakin crazy
The only thing i really had problems with today was not know what gear to go up the hills in? I never dreamed they would be this steep. I tried 1st and 2nd on different hills but i dunno what is the correct way to climb a hill. I didn't wanna go to slow in 1st and not have enough speed, but in 2nd i didn't wanna mess up and not give enough gas and loose my rpms and kill her on the side of a hill. That also scared me about it being 2 way traffic. What if your climbing that big ole hill(and others their) on the silo trail and somebody pops over the hill on ya. U can't just stop on a hill like that can u? and u can't just run them over lol? And those 4 wheeler and dirtbike guys are crazy. What were they thinking being out their in 50 degree weather today
sweet, when i read u won't believe what stock can handle, peeps were right. The whole day on the main paths i was just like this is crazy, i'm fixin to roll over, bottom out, and on a couple hills i could just imagine the front coming off the ground any sec and flip head over tails down it Think i'll have to ride the main paths few more time's before i get brave enough to try any of the other trails.
whats funny is i thought one of the gravel roads that led to a cemetery was pretty tricky till i got inside turkey bay
you know on the F trail were it comes to a hill and has 3 paths going up it? Is their a certain one i'm suppose to go up? they all had something i didn't like about em lol. One i think looked like i could bottom out right at the top, i think the other had pretty deep ruts that might cause a bottom out on a stock setup if tires slid off in them, and the one i went up had that freaking stump stickin out way to far for comfort plus i lost traction at the top of it, but i think i started turning right to soon. I should have scoped out that better while i was on top checking things out, but all i could think of while actually going up was their wasn't much room up top before i need to start turning.
Well, to clarify something for you, all the numbers or letters in your post above are interections. The trails are numbered. Each one is 4 numbers long (3201, for rexample) The number layout goes like this. The first number is the area of the park. The second number is the difficulty. The last two numbers are the trail number.
We generally try to avoid the yellow trails at all costs. For one, after about your second trip there, they are booooooorrrring. Secondly, the yellow trails are where all the dirtbikes, ATVs and SBSs ride 100 Mph around blind corners. I'm not saying anything is wrong with that. I used to ride my Warrior the same way on those trails. It's not fun meeting all that high speed trafic in a Jeep though.
And yes, after bout 12 they was out like crazy. I imagine during summer their out bad way before that. Only prob I had with them was I would be nice and get over n stop to let em by n they wanna go by slow then they wanna gas it n throw rooster tail of rocks at me, dirt is one thing but rocks had me pissed off lol
