Required: 4x4, decent AT tires, sliders
Recommended: skids + aftermarket bumpers, locker, diff breather mod, recovery gear (winch, hi-lift), CB or FRS radio (I'll have both to communicate between the two)
Tentative plan: Head to the northern trailhead near Lake Alpine on Friday afternoon/night and camp out at Silver Creek. Wheel at Slick Rock Saturday morning at 9AM, then after, hit up Corral Hollow trail. Then camp out Saturday night. Folks are welcome to camp the whole time, part of the weekend, or just do a day trip.

tidbits from members...
I made it through last time on 31s, stock skids, open/open, WITH sliders (<--veeeeerry important).
Trail had snow on first half mile. Muddy in spots and alot of loose rocks. Fun as always but I think those with out skids and lockers need to be cautious. I would highly recommend sliders, lift, 33" tires. Those without skids will have to take it slow to avoid hitting bottom and those without a locker will prob need to winched up the very last obstacle. For the long WB rigs, you might have to do some multiple point turns for some sections. Anything is doable if you have the will. Take a look at my rig from top to bottom and you'll see what I mean. Can it be done, yes. Can it be done cleanly, no. Made the last obstacle the hard way too. Also for those with open air filters like a cold air, if the water crossing does not get lower might have to think about changing it out.
