The 7th Obstacle is pretty Impassable to an FJ as of August 2014. Then the monsoon hit in force and pretty much wiped out many portions of this road. I'm looking forward to an updated trail report. It was definitely a 3, with some 4.0 sections (Obstacles) all of which could be bypassed. The bypass on the hard obstacle is getting sporty too.

you can actually see the wagon wheel wear on the road there. Kind of neat.
OBSTACLE 6


OBSTACLE 7 (All (well 1) FJ's had to be winched up. None made it up under power this day.)


MENDOZA Memorial (Above and below) Oro Bell section
Proof in itself that this trail should NOT be taken lightly, especially at night.

Rumors are flying that this route to Crown King is currently closed! I have yet to confirm the information with an actual first hand account. However if you decide to head up there be prepared to turn around about half way up.

We have heard the same thing, there is a active mining operation up there now just before fort misery. As a matter of fact we stopped and talked to them a few months back and they are mining a few miles even the fort is probably going bye bye. They seemed nice enough and even cut a new rd through but most likely got tired of asshats and have now closed it off.

Prior to where he closed the road is an area of trees and go down into that and the road continues around his operation and you will drive partially through the water. I did the trail a few weeks ago in my rzr and was able to get around him to the east
