The trail is in fair shape and definetly worth the time to do it again. I almost turned around and ran it backwards, but one of our rigs was having carborator problems so I escorted him out. I ran this trail in mid August this past summer and there are more "divits" in the trail than there were then. Obviously some rigs have gotten stuck and dug some fairly deep holes in the trail. There was only snow on the back side in one spot on the trail and it was only about 30 yards wide, and ice. I ran a stock 2003 Rubicon and had no problems, even avoided the bypasses and took the main route. There were 11 rigs in our group and only 1 cherokee took some rear fender damage. The rock garden was quite fun and since there really isn't a trail through it, we all did our own thing there. Nice short, challenging run, with great views from quite a few vantage points. Two hours with 11 rigs isn't bad at all, what with stopping after the obsticles to make sure the guys behind you get help spotting if they need it, and enjoying the view.
