Never heard of it before. Traildamage hasn't updated it since 07. Fun? Anyone run it?

Re: Trough trail???

I have ran it a couple times in my truggy. It's short and nasty. I will see if I can find some pics when I get home.
If you are scared of body damage I wouldn't run it. I would be willing to run it with you guys if you are interested in my Cherokee. I would recommend lockers, winch, skid plates, and rocker guards.
It's a good trail to combine with the Sidewinder trail up by Kremmling (about 25 miles from Trough).

Re: Trough trail???

I wouldn't go less than 33's. There are some rather large rocks on this trail, but with some good spotting it can be done. I had a guy with a 4 Runner on 35's follow me through last time without much trouble. It's a fun trail and both times I ran it we were the only rigs there. There is a really nice parking area for trucks and trailers. It's by the Colorado river and we even caught a few fish while we waited for everyone to show up.

K the pics on traildamage must be misleading cuz it looks less dificult than liberty in penrose. I'll have to snag a look at that trail this year.

Re: Trough trail???

It was about a 3 hour trip for us and we ran the optional spur of "Trough Your Rocker". I have never ran Liberty, but from what I have seen if you have done that you will be fine on Trough. I would like to join you if you decide to come up. It will probably be dry enough around the first part of May.

Good trip report I found with lots of pics and vids.

There is room to camp there but the train comes by every hour or so.
