This was my second time on this trail. The last time I missed the turn and once I realized it and was looking on the map to see how far back it was it started pouring rain so we high tailed it out of there. Was nice to get out there and complete it. The trail is in good shape, its on the Hummer tours list so I think they have some of the maintenance dutys that keep it in great shape. We had a decent size crew, 6 rigs, all did well. I will say we had a brand new F150 with us, still had the paper plates. While he did it, I wouldn't recommend it, at least not without a tire upgrade. We also convinced him to remove that plastic air dam on the lower front bumper beforehand. It would have been a casualty. We only ran into 1 hummer tour vehicle, 1 rental jeep, and 1 other vehicle. Not crowded at all. The "cliffhanger" section is the best part.
