The "O" trail at Rausch Creek

Yesterday my friend with a TJ (4" on 33's) asked me if I wanted to go up with him. It was my first time. Had a blast! I just have a stock rubicon with the sra's (been on a tight budget and needed new tires) but everything was awesome on the green trails we did. Saw the "O" trail and it said green under it so we went. About 30 mins later Im thinking this isnt like any of the stuff we did and finally came to a hill climb. the TJ took about 10 mins to get up and bashed the sides and bumper. Needless to say we turned around, I needed to drive to work today haha. After we went back through we took a look at the sign and underneath the "O" GREEN was black/red in small writing Had a blast and saw some awesome Jeeps. Im definitely hooked now and cant wait to hopefully catch a trail ride with everyone

Is the "O" trail really that hard or am I just being a sissy LOL?

Can't remember the O trail, but if you're on SR-A's, then I can imagine you were havin' a ball.

Unless you went on the optional lines that are black/red on O then its a green trail. You would know if you did as the optional lines are a rock/boulder field. Lol.



There are some washed out greens up at RC now with all the sudden hard down pours. Maybe just a washed out green.

Here is the Entrance to the optional section on O.



I think there is another on to the optional section from C but that one is clearly marked Black/Red

Yeah the sra's arent too much fun lol

I think we took the optional line by mistake after that we I was in charge of the map I wasnt leading and honestly just glanced and saw green and thought ok

At the end of the boulder section theres a steep rutted hill climb correct? Thats where I had enough

Ill have pics up tonight when I get off. It was a great trip though Im hoping to make it back often

Can't wait to play in there once I put my Curries on with my 37", 38.5", 39.5", 40", or 41.5" tires... whichever I finally decide on.

LOL, nice find.

It dates back to the times before Bruce opened Rausch to the public and the O trail was so named because there were groups of locals that would come out there and do all sorts of crazy drugs and engage in group orgies.

But don't tell anyone I told you the secret

There was some flap about putting "O SHIT" on the sign so they just called ti "O"

If thats the case it should be a blue trail.

Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.
