    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.

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