Hidden Falls Trails: Ranked from Hardest to Easiest
« on: February 18, 2015, 03:31:33 pm »
In order to more efficiently procrastinate at work, I decided that I could not live one more moment without a survey of Hidden Falls trails and their respective difficulty based off of recent trips, not the maps they printed 5 years ago. Scale is as follows:

"Requires a RamCharger" on the high side  :headbang:  :steeringwheel:
"Requires a Insert Joke Here" for the tweeners   :icon_salut:  :violent1:
"Requires a Furd" on the low side  :dontknow: :confused2:

watch out for East.... a bit of a challenge.... 35" tires would be a minimum tire size...and a winch

I think you need more than 3 levels...

maybe

"Requires a FrankenDodge"
"Requires a 4WD Dodge with lift and tires" ***
"Requires a Dodge"
"Requires a Dodge in front of the Furd to help it up the hill"
"Requires a Furd"

*** 4WD can be replaced with a 2WD w/ locker and a large pair of ...   :laughing7:

I changed it from RamCharger to Dodge, as there are some that don't have RamChargers and are making the rest of us look bad.

Fortunately all is open to interpretation. I personally have never beaten Wet and Wild, which is now Enemy #1. My personal ranking of W&W would be "Requires a Lift Kit", and maybe something other than 31's.  :nono:

One of my favorites is Green Mile .... lots of uphill straight line throttle and wheel spin.... trail level is usually passable with a stock to mildly modified Dodge... usually lol  :steeringwheel:

I enjoy Baby back also.. it is fun both ways and has a gnarly ledge at the top, which somehow can be surmounted with 31" tires and stock Dodges.... however in reality it really should be tackled with a Dodge w/lift and larger tires to minimize the abuse required to get up the ledge at the top

The map is always helpful.... interestingly the 3 trails I just listed are all level 4... I think EAST is definately not a 4.... It could be put on the Frankendodge required list

You seem to enjoy breaking parts. Its a sick and twisted deal with Dodge Gods if you ask me.

I honestly thought some videos of actual trails might surface from this scholarly discussion.

I have seen videos of "Loose Rock", and it looks like a ton of fun, but I cannot remember ever trying it. Lift not required so its intriguing.  :violent1:

We have never tried loose rock as it is rated at a level 5 and the first ledge would probably require frankendodge status ..... Honestly it has always looked fairly impassable to me  :steeringwheel:
