thanks guys,,,,the best trailsm are just getting ready to start opening up for the summer. it has been a real mild winter and normally you wouldn't be able to get to this elevation for at least another 4 weeks so it was a rare treat. glad you liked them.
Man, I was just there on Friday... I actually live in Rollinsville. I still have a pretty much stock Jeep, and wasn't able to make it over the pass; I got stuck shortly after trail 772 branches off, right around 11,000 feet. There was a large snow drift on one of the hairpin turns, the bottom was melting quite a bit, and there was a decent sized ditch under it... I kept sinking in when my rear tires hit the snow. Did you guys make it all the way over the pass?
Let me know next time you guys plan a trip into the hills... I don't know how well I will be able to hang with my stock (for now) TJ, but I'm sure it would be a lot of fun.
we actually ran into the same snow. except we hit the trail from the St Marys/Alice side.
we went by way of Yankee hill like you a few weeks sooner. but either way there should be much more snow still. scary!! if it were a little earlier in the day we would have tried to break it. but being late and on a side hill we thought better of it. it's a great place to hang out for sure. is Rollins Pass East and Jenny Creek open yet?
It is a bit scary how early it's all melting out... I will certainly take advantage of it, though! I haven't been up Rollins Pass yet this year, I plan to hit it up on Saturday if I get the chance. Let me know if anyone else wants to check it out with me!
