That is curious, the opposite is true in Utah. Since most of the public lands are under going travel plans right now establishing and mapping the existence of trails is key. We have a list of trails that is being compiled by the clubs and the association for submittal to the governors office. We also have been attending various county meetings as they establish area plans. So we are hopeful that the openness and documentation will gain us new and legal trails to use in the future.Due to alot of conservation issues, Im sure some of the most difficult trails will remain unnamed.
True. I was looking for the hard ones as rated on a "Moab" scale. Not necessarily what was hard when it wet and such. More "this rivals the rubi or pritchett" stuff.I think the difficulty level of any trail would be determined by experience and equiptment set up, easy for some is impossible to others. Extreme trails for extreme rigs are also determind by the weather and total usage. the more they're run the less challenge they become. The only way to keep things really interesting is by constantly looking for new areas to run.
I am not sure exactly what you are saying here because of your (lack of)spelling and punctuation but if I understand correctly, you are saying that it is selfish for people to keep some trails secret? I have not participated in any "secret" trail finding and running but I happen to agree with the folks that do.But the whole sprite of 4 wheeling is for everybody and when a few think they should be the only ones to use a trail(just because they found it) but think every one should help keep it open then it is not in the sprit of the real 4 wheel(or out doorsman) it is just for the selfish few.
Both have vaild points. We need to find a balance of getting the numbers in membership to trail managment. All trails at some point must incure some type of maintenace.Valid point - but the people that keep "some" trails secret are also the MOST active in keeping ALL of our trails open.

I would agree with that comparison. I've never run the right side of 2HD. However, 2HD dragon is what a 1/4 mile long? Whereas Pritchett is really pretty easy until the last mile where it is just obstacle after obstacle. Longevity should rate in trail ratings some how.So far the hardest trail I have ran in this area is the right side of 2HD...
I thought it was on par or harder then pritchet.
