The trail you are talking about has some challenging parts but nothing that can’t be done. I’d be surprised if the many pioneers make it though. Around here most pioneers stay on the farm and strictly for work. Water is a non issue unless it’s poured the rain. Keep in mind that in our area 90% of the trails are either up the mountain or down the mountain. Water can’t pool up on inclines. Windrock is an awesome place to ride but they check coolers for alcohol and do not put up with any crap. They will kick you out if you don’t follow their rules. Have fun . Many YouTube videos to watch if you want to see what you are getting into

    Before you go into a water hole pick a good line, sometimes that is hard to do but if you aren't sure, let the more experienced drivers go through first, or let the rigs that are built for mud go through first. 4 Low tends to be the magic setting for every thing mud but remember not to goose the throttle if you are using 4 Low. Old timer once told me if you are using 4 low before you go into the hole, you probably shouldn't go into the hole
    Some excellent points here.

    Maybe I don't qualify as a "red neck" cause I fail to see the fun in this.

    Now if I was in Dustin, Logan & crews shoes, Can Am giving me cars to go tear up, no need to worry about repairing or having to clean them, maybe, a couple decades ago I'd probably be all in. But there's no way I'd do this to my car.

    Got my ride height to 14.5" ahead of time and was glad I did. Great times riding in royal blue. Completely different experience from WI trails. Spent most of my time in low going 8-12mph

    Glad you enjoyed it ! I love Windrock. The stuck pioneer should not have entered that mudhole......you can tell its too much/too deep and rutted out just by looking at it.
    I saw where you wrote that you would be trying low gear ! lol......I want to try high gear ! Its low gear 95% of the time and 4x4 for 75%.


    Always enter mud holes that don't look bad like the one in the pic slowly in low and 4x4.....if in doubt get out, grab a long stick and use it as a depth finder.....you will see long sticks laying next to most larger mud areas/holes. You can drive for days and only make it 100 miles or less.....I drove 10 hours straight and was at less than 50 miles on the odometer.

    Did you notice the hundreds on grave markers and crosses all over the trails ? some butt pucker trails for sure.....some downright scary don't make a mistake trails.

    Post more pics !!
    We brought a group of 25 out on our last trip there.....I watched a 12 year old girl go everywhere we did on her built 4 wheeler.....she was fearless and badass... and could drive ! I was super impressed with her
