I ran the full loop on Sunday (near Truckee, CA). I can't say that I'd give it much of a recommendation at this point. The trail is badly overgrow in many, many spots. I'm not adverse to "pin striping" my Jeep even more that it already is, but I hate to do it for so little in return. The scenery isn't much to look at, you end up where you started and the wheeling is moderate at best. The best obstacles are the two winch hills, ball peen and the rock garden. I'd rate them as moderate but sort of fun. Other than those, it's lots of miles traveling over football sized rocks - no challenge but a slow and rough ride.
