Signal Peak is good to go.

 

There is a massive mud hole (more deep than it is large) in one of the meadow spots... bring a winch or maxtrax to make it up the hill at that spot... or wait a month for it to dry out some more.

It is a "traction board" designed to be put down on a surface that you arent getting traction on. The theory is that the board grabs the surface, and your tires get traction on the boards rather than the slippery surface you are on...

Literally every other time I have used someones traction boards, they have failed. They usually just get spun out and people usually just end up using them as a $100 awkward shovel. This was the first time I have ever seen them legit work... we did have to wedge them in just right though.

Only been on one trip where someone actually had the name brand maxtrax. Usually people get the chineese knockoffs (ebay or smittybuilt) which are made of cheap plastics that break and aren't as grippy as the real deal.

Tyler,

If the mud hole is where it usually is I avoid it by taking a right up the granite before you get to the mud hole.  Are you familiar with the spot I am talking about?  Was there much snow?

I know where the spot is... never taken it though. But there is no snow left on the mountain... 1 little patch about 5 ft wide on the very top in the parking area.

I always avoided that turn up the granite in the past because there is nothing there indicating that it is apart of the trail system... So I always thought that it wasn't suposed to be driven on. But I have learned in the past couple of weeks that the granite path is the actual jeep trail to the top, and the other way is for side by sides and quads to get to the top. So, I willl be going to check it out during fathers day weekend while I am up there playing on fordyce 🙂
