Dusy/Ershim Trail is a great trail; according to my CA trail book, is right behind the Rubicon as far as difficulty goes.

GoFishTJ, this is in your backyard, right? You going? I made a Hollister committment, so I am out of this one this time. Have fun guys and lots of pics!

We just got back from five days on the Dusi. Incredible trail, awesome scenery! We had 4 Jeeps and Bronco. The Bronco will never be the same. You need sliders and skid plates. If the trees don't get you the rocks will. I have run the Rubicon twice and Dusi makes the Rubicon seem like a moderate trail. There are steep climbs with loose boulders and tall drop steps. Very awesome trail and very difficult. Pictures to follow.

The book is often "off". It's just a guide..plus the trails are constantly changing. They call Miller a black diamond as well...it's at best "moderate".

I don't think the trails are laid out by order of difficulty in that book....more like geological order
The complete Dusy trail is more difficult then the Rubicon...
I think jeep needs to come out with a Dusy addition....?

Lorie, We thought of you. 30 miles of rocks with no rest. It takes a well prepared rig, good spotters, and you better be able drive with confidence.
There isn't much this trail is missing except "easy". We camped at different lake each night. We will have to talk about a trip next year. Unfricking believable trail!

Dwight- you know I'm all over that!!!

Yes..I plan on the Con next year and this one if possible. Just need to plan for it.

I only have one thing left with my build and that's the MetalCloaks. My 8.8 is finally in. Sept 6th is the target date for the Cloaks to be installed. I'm ready to go hit Motino and I want to check out some of the Hammers.

I have run several of the trails on the difficult list, and I agree, they are not all "difficult" but more or less have what some would call difficult sections... even if the section has a little waterfall, they rate the entire trail difficult. Definitely not geological or geographical order... but I agree, not completely accurate. However, this is a great order to run trails in... not sure about anyone else, but Fordyce is calling my name.

Wish I could get out with you guys on this one! Good luck and lots of photos and videos if you can!

I will for sure hit the Rubicon with you guys... it is a hell of a lot closer to me than your usual SoCal runs... but I am making the Cleghorn in Oct for sure.

If your gonna come down to run Cleghorn then you need to make it a double header and run Marble Canyon as well....definitely a big step up from CH....more on par with Matino wash.
It'll give you full day of fun

Difficulty can be subjective too. What may be difficult for one, may not be for another. I found Slick Rock to be difficult for me, but most catagoize it as moderate.

True... but you have TLJTC and you go where everyone goes, so I think you are just being modest... you nearly made it up the spot in Cow Mt where guys where struggling with their 37s and 40s

If I post, we won't have half the crowd as if you do. But that would be fine with me also. You know me, I love a small group. Lol. So yeah, whatever. We'll discuss it Sunday. MmmK?

LOL! That's what I love about trying some of the harder trails. I really have to pick my lines carefully and take my time. The jeep does most of the work. I just don't want to hang jeepers up waiting for me. Don't want to be "That guy", lol!

Agree, I prefer the smaller groups sometimes too. Big open OHV park like Hollister or Cow Mt, the big groups are great, but when you have 20+ vehicles on a trail sometimes it is just outside my appetite.

We have so many good trails here in the central valley that are very close that I haven't had the chance to run any Socal trails. Another problem is that they are so dang far away.

We will have to get out again near your neck of the woods. I think the last time we saw each other was Hollister... but I know Fresno has some great rock areas.
