its not that bad, ( stock friendly ) there is one mud pit. but you can go around. there are several water crossings, stock jeeps have made it,,

pmedg, thats a good looking jeep... and after the phone call i just got, we might all need snorkels. just got off the phone with a friend that lives out there , he said the water is deep very deep, hood deep on his 4 inch lift with 35's. we might have to reconsider this trail run,. that would be over my hood.

Damn, thats pretty high. and it doesnt seem as though too many dry and warm days are in our future. I appreciate the heads up.

Green Machine,

I'm interested in this trail run if it happens. Question: my stocker has a Fisher Homesteader plow rig. I've dropped the plow but I lose a little clearance up front from the remaining frame. Do you think the area in Tolland, Mass will present insurmountable clearance issues for a stocker with a plow frame?
FWIW, I've gone out once with some friends on a fairly mild trail/off-trail ride which included water up to about the headlights. No problem there but not too rocky either.

Yeah, I need to let this one pass. I'm sure that I couldn't tackle that even without the plow frame.

ok just got off the phone with my friend,,, he just did tolland in his new 2012 right off the show room floor ,,, water is down a bit, but still deep.. but he did do the whole trail. except for the mud pit. so if your not scared of water, tolland could be a go. oh the meeting spot for toland is 2000 east otis road otis mass 01079, if you pull it up on google maps ,, go to the intersection at the gas station,,, go left, when the road goes right the trail breaks off to the left... follow trail to power lines after power lines it turns right and follows the power lines. bone stock jeep sport's have done this trail and im still shooting for this.heres a few pictures of the water.
