    I did this run September of 2016
    September ROTM - Pyeatt draw
    It is a difficult trail for an inexperienced driver but can be a great trail to learn on and gather skill and confidence. I would suggest proper protection and the understanding going in their is a good chance of body damage. Their is a dirt road that follows the difficult creek trail and is an easy road to follow along and watch others or bail at certain points.

    @D_Web @ARJMN this is a fairly short technical trail with bypasses and good camping, shouldn't miss it!

    I hunt that area every year, but apparently have driven by this trail and never knew it existed. Does it start at the top of the climb?

    I invited a couple gnarly cruiser drivers and am encouraging membership. One is a two tone 80 on 37s and one is a fj45 on an 80 frame with a Chevy 5.3 and nv4500. They are pretty handy with them too.

    Hmmm. Are gnarly drivers allowed on this trail?

    We will put them first so they are not waiting on the slow cautious people!
