So the 30 min. trail build was alot of fun. Can't wait to do it when it's finished[36]
Here's the convoy pic. There were 3 quads, 4 cherokees, 1 Landrover, 1 ford, and my tj.

This is what we're all looking at and where we ended up going.

Trail Junkie and I went first. Lockers are pretty much required through here.

There was alot of digging and tree cutting, building little bridges and such.
There are some fairly off camber spots through there as were on the side of the hill. We leveled the ground just enough to make it.

It's a pretty tough trail. We all kinda figured it to be min. 33"tires and locked and or winch. I did it with 35's and locked but I'd have needed a winch in several spots had I not been locked.

Pics to come will have some shots of trail building[cheers]

In search of Paradise again. I guess with all the tree's gone will make for drier conditions. I should come out next time but I'm working this weekend. Anybody going during the week to work on it some more???

you've got the tire size but the wheel base on the cherokees put them in some bad spots without lockers. Take someone for sure and you'd do alright I think.

Is it just a trail or is there any obstickles along the way?

what does it lead to?

The trail we cut leads to the trail that takes you to the old fsr road that is pretty much completely grown in. It'll need more work to clear the bush down to the beach.
The trail coming out of the woods to the trail we broke has one obsticle that you'd probably have to go around unless you had a longer wheel base or maybe 40" tires. There's a nice stump your front left tire hits just as your rears are climbing out of the mud hole. I had to go around it with 35's but I kinda dug that hole out and left it more or less a 2' wall now.

There is not much of a challenge for you kraqa. The trail goes to beach but the beach is only there in the fall

Kraqa

Looks good guys...how badly is that stuff gonna erode ? I used to build MTB trails once in a while (which is different i know), but if there wasnt a lot of rock, everything would just get pummeled and dug down and the trail would go to shit...
