Tray Mountain run...

So me and my brother (who also recently bought a Wrangler) were thinking about doing the 2 hour Tray Mountain trail, but after watching some of the videos, I'm a bit apprehensive about going with just the two of us as we've really never done anything outside some really mild forestry service roads up in Blue Ridge and near Brasstown Bald.

I know that it says it's a nice beginners run for people to see if they like off roading, but is this a trail that some of you more experienced Jeepers would suggest for a couple of newbies? Would be be able to navigate it fairly easily and enjoy the trip?

Thanks in advance!

You can most of it in 2wd. Only one small frame twister near the top. You'll be fine.

It was the first trail i ever went on with one of my co-workers who had a new jeep as well. Here is our trip in everytrail:

I think you will be fine, there are a couple of intersections along the way, so make sure you know the route to take.. You can always turn around if you're not comfortable, but like it was said above, it can mostly be done in 2WD.

Thanks guys! I guess it's just nerves of being new to it and not knowing what we're doing...we're going to try it out next weekend! Really looking forward to it too!

Go to Google Maps and look up Tray Mountain Road. If you go in from the East side and turn around at the big cut out in the mountain top you should enjoy. The West side of the trail is just a bunch of kidney busting rocks and then some new home sites.
