    Default Switzerland Trail - Sun Feb 21



    Took the wife's new truck out to Switzerland Trail with Shane to see how it would handle. Only ran the southern half of the trail, but didn't encounter any snow high enough to drag the skid plates or rear differential.

    We ran every legal side spur on this stretch and had a good time. Got to test out 4low and the rear locker in the gully with the old rusted tractor.

    The trail is still in good shape even after last week's cold weather and snow.

    I went over to the check out cliffhanger and the rest of the trail after you headed home and as expected immediately hit deep snow and turned back. No tracks up cliffhanger, and only sxs on the rest of Switzerland.

    Yes, some snow on the trail. The two switchbacks were snowy and very slippery.
