Xjman1 Thanks for sharing the pics and video. Man it has been a few years since i have been on the trail but it sure looks as if all the obstacle have filled in with runoff. Side effect of the fires I guess. Either way still looks like an awesome place to get away. Next Time, gents.

Yah, and it's not just the beginning that's narrow. There were lots of long narrow stretches.

I'm not completely opposed to the idea, but maybe we can evaluate it as we're going up on Saturday.

yomondo Here's a video of the last stretch of Miller Jeep Trail, which is the most difficult section. The video doesn't really do it justice, but it's not terribly difficult either.

KRawson Had a great time guys, looking foward to heading out again soon
Couldn't ask for a better group of gentlemen to wheel with.
Thanks for sharing the pics.
06-12-2011 09:37 PM
yomondo Sorry we didn't really get any action pictures or videos on the trail. It was a busy day on the trail and I didn't want to slow down the group behind us to stop and take pictures and video.

Here's what I got.

BeantownR6 just got back an unloaded. the weather was great and the wheeling was good. lots of groups out on the trail saturday. we went through it pretty fast. nobody needed spotting and no issues. i didn't get any action pictures, just airing down and at camp. i think armand might have some pics. Rebuilt sorry you couldnt make it hopefully next time.

I know it could, but it would help if it had rock rails. Too risky if you do not want body damage on it.

KRawson See you guys up there. Drive safe.

mJUSTINm Have fun, wish I could make (afford) this one.
06-11-2011 12:07 AM
Six Gun Matt Yeah, I am pretty bummed, but there is always next time. Just got a lot of **** in the last couple of days, and we just had an offer accepted yesterday on a house we bid on earlier this week, so there is that. I just didn't have time to take care of some (little) issues with the Jeep I needed to take care of before tomorrow.

But I am really bummed!!! I look forward to the pics.
