Headed to Redbird!

Hey all,

Me and my old man are headed to Redbird here in a few. Anything I should know or be aware of when I get there?

I'm in a TJ on 33's and he's in a 2015 JKU Rubicon, figure we can tackle most of the trails together.

How was your trip? I figured even though it's too late to answer your question, we might as well make this a Redbird thread.

I've been to Redbird a few times and had a great time. All the trails are well marked and the map has some good descriptions so I think it's a good place in that it won't get you in over your head unless that is your intention. That's why I haven't been to Badlands yet. It seems like there it's easier to end up on a harder section or in deeper water or mud than you were intending - even on green trails. That's my impression anyway from YouTube, etc.

As far as Redbird, with my stock willys I kept it mostly to trails 5 and 3. What did you guys do with that stock Rubicon?

The trip was fantastic!

I honestly couldn't tell which specific trails we did but we stuck to most of the beginner/intermediate ones. This was before I had lockers so didn't want to chance it on the more difficult stuff. It was raining the entire time we were out so it was a bit muddy in some places but that just added to the challenge, plus wheeling in the woods when it's raining is one of my favorite things to do.

Did slide into a tree and dent my fender but it's really not too bad, I might replace it some day but for now I'm not worried about it.

Overall it was definitely a great experience, my only real complaint would be that some of the trail heads led directly into the dirt bike trails. Had a few close calls. Fortunately when we went there weren't too many asshats in side by sides there but there was still a few.

One thing I do wish though was that there was some more places nearby to camp or just other lodging. We ended up renting a cabin but that was about 30 minutes away from the park.
