Default 6/6/2015 Montana Creek - Yoder Rd

Three of us ran the trail Saturday, Kyle in his Yota, Robert in the Sami and Me in buggy. As expected it was a challenging trail. I'd rate it a single black diamond and unless you are glutton for punishment wouldn't run it w/o lots of mods, big tires, lockers, lots of winch line, etc. If you decide to run it one thing I strongly suggest, don't cross the swamps where it looks like everyone goes. It's a sure recipe for extended periods pulling cable. Instead run on the edges. The trail is rougher but you'll usually have something to winch to and won't make a huge mess of the swamps. Personally I wouldn't run it on an ATV.

We made it farther than I had in the past. Partly cause it was a small group and because we didn't stop and BS every half mile. We all needed assistance along the way and I got to test the new winch motor after sticking the buggy a couple of times. No carnage and only one flop.

My GPS shows about 25 miles round trip and 2000' of elevation gain. I kept the topo detail rather than condense it to one page.

Action first



Once up righted there was no obvious damage. A couple more inches would have smashed his cab.

I took 60 pictures and a 14 cool videos riding with Kyle in the Toyota, I'll post more when I can. The bogs were pretty soft and once the axle's started plowin grass it was game over every time. The tree line around the bog's were rough but it had a definite bottom with good traction. That's pretty much a must have good long winch and another vehicle trail. I wouldn't recommend it without those 2 at the least. I'm sure it could be done, but I wont. Great time!!
