Look forward to seeing you up here. We have a lot of fun doing this. Not to mention we get to run the new stuff first. The challenge we have is DNR has to make trails accessible to "all" types of rigs, ie; stock or mildly modified and yet still be challenging. So areas that have no bypass have to be easy enough for lighter equipped rigs. That's where I come in running open front and rear. If I can make it then it passes. Who need's lockers? It's all in the skinny pedal.

Very nice work!

Can I ask if this was done by just digging and moving dirt, or was dirt and rocks hauled in?

We are planning this same type work on our new trails and wondering if it is easier to satisfy the Forrest Service by digging of filling?

Everything we did was with existing materials. The Moguls were made by digging out one side in a sort of "J" shape from the top down with the hook on the bottom side of the mogul, then taking that material and piling it on top and packing it down. It has not been done at Walker before so it is a bit of an experiment to see how it will sluff off or rut out. Either way it is definitely interesting running through it.

Should be interesting how this holds up---With as much rocky material that there is, I would think it'll pack in nicely as long as some uneducated person doesn't come up in a under-equipped rig and full throttle their way up the new sections; Len's right, if his rig can do it when done, it passes (4.5" w/ 32's and open diffs)... only in a couple spots, he had to try a different line going up, so as not to flex out the suspension quite so much and cause tire lift, ---me on the other hand...
