Other time was on this massive rock over on the way up close to the top. I remember thinking it seemed like it should have been rated a bit higher on Trail Damage based on the descriptions. There were some big rocks to get over in places.
perhaps the trail is more eroded then when the TD folks rated it? With all the rain this past few months...???

It's possible. Even just in the last week we got a bunch of rain.

Adventure may hurt you, but monotony will kill you.

Sounds like the conditions have gotten a lot worse. I did this trail in my Liberty a few years ago, no skid plates and no rails. I had a couple nerve wracking moments when I bottomed out, but it did a great job. I was looking forward to trying it with the Trailhawk, but I might have to wait until I get some rails.

I still don't think its too bad. At the top there is plenty of area to bypass things if it gets to nasty.

I'll definitely be making the trip again when the pass opens back up. Maybe get a group going? My Wifey took my Trailhawk so I'll probably end up running it in the Rubi.
