    Nightmare gulch anyone?

    Found this video over on a Land Rover forum, and wondered if we should plan a trip out there? Looks pretty doable, with 2 or 3 tight spots.

    Has anyone been out there?

    Yes, I would love to set up a South Park/Pleasant Canyon run but H1 and H2's weigh too much for the bridge!

    Honestly, from what I've seen video wise and heard, I think the 1's and 2's would have a really hard time on this trail. I wouldn't mind going on a pre run in a 3 just to check it out. There are a couple sections where my height might be an issue too. Looks like a fun trail though
