I'm looking for Anchorage area guys to give me a few tips. I don't know of any trails in the area other than Jim's Creek and a few wimpy trails around base (JBER). I'm new to off-roading. I had an '86 Samurai that was VERY capable despite stock and a '79 Chevy that I never got on any good trails up here. Other than that, my experience is limited. I'm looking for a trail that's gonna be friendly to my stock Tacoma, a friend's stock Frontier and a Silverado.
I know where Jim's Creek is but I'm not too familiar with the actual trails and I know it's a big ORV area. Are there any beginner friendly trails around here? And I here some nasty rumors about soot from the eruption a few years back killing engines. Anyone know how true that is?
