The 600 series are Naches District #"s. 300 series #'s are Cle Elum. That section of trail is in the Cle Elum but the Naches used to manage it. Management lines changed. Note the 601 has now been used over in Rimrock.

The location that you took the picture of is more uphill and a little more difficult. I think you could take tweety on it with a little help spotting in the tight stuff. You might have some trouble on a couple of the hills but we have done it with open rigs in the past. It is a nice trail to run and dosent take all day to run it. Years past at trail Jamb we have run the trail out to the string trail and then turned around and run it back just to keep a more even flow on the hills. It is just as much fun the other way too.

Thanks for the info. We have a few XJs owner in our club that would like to run 4W330. Shoestring was not as tight as we were told by some people. We ran Shoestring east to west in 2007. 2008 we ran String down then Shoestring east. Last year I even used the Blue XJ. So in 2009 we want to do something different to break things up even more. We are hoping for tight trails but do not want to go where we don't fit.

A few more from the RS. In Sashas defense She had broken the front axle the year before on this same hill and was using better judgement this year. This hill is rough and loose if you dont start out strong and keep some momentum your not going to make it up. If you stop the chances of continuing up are slim to none. You will either dig holes or start hopping and then break.

Is this come from 4W307 or from 4W309?
