Looks like something the Packrats should try sometime in the future. Would be an epic experience.

That looks like a really cool trip! When they said no one has been able to finish it in recent years, it makes it even more tempting Haha.

Exactly, makes planning that much more important. Think this would be so cool, an epic adventure on a less popular trail.

Last group of jeeps to complete was 1971. Logistics is the big one. Huge rock slide in dodo canyon from last year created a lake. Currently impassable in a quad.
There are safe crossings on all the rivers. Not where the trail is. Except for twitya. Bring your own raft. There is a huge thread on adv rider. Ultimate canol thread.
Reality is if you make it to the twitya you are doing dam good. Out door life did an adv attempt. There are u tube videos. They turned around there. The hardest part of the trail is between mile 87 and the twitya crossing. If you have advanced route finding skills you should be okay to get to the twitya. Plan on leaving your jeep there if things go sour.

After four minutes its all dodo canyon. You can see trail down below every once in a while. This is best part of the trail. Brother inlaw made it from norman wells to mile post 87 in one day on a clapped out dirt bike. Camped over night and returned next day. Even if you do not whell this section. It is worth driving up there and charter a chopper for a couple hours to fly dodo.

This look amazing. I think the packrats could put together a wonderful run. If everything fell right the dates and such. I would take the time for this. I think lots of meeting and planning would need to be done before we can attempt this.


In NASCAR, you don't have to be as physically strong as in some other forms of racing. You've just got to be able to endure the heat and endurance of it.
