Broken Shaft Gulch, yup. We drove it in March a week or so before the earthquake closed it, it was reported.

It's huge and impossible to miss... facing the direction of Split Mtn. and on the left side of the road, right where the gulch begins, on that end.

It must have been hidden or its gone now! I cant believe i made it through in a prerunner Other than that rock i almost slid into, the rest was easiier than i expected! im pretty sure besides Doug the rest were in 4WD when i was in 2WD doing and going the same places they went!

All i got to say is i love my Toyota! All signs said 4X4 trails and i made it in a 2WD

Matt, you did really, really good amigo! You have a right to be proud of your driving skills and the Tacoma's ability!

I didn't see the sign David but theres no doubt about that wash leading to split mnt, really fun picking your way thru the rocks. Matt did great thru that shit in 2wd. All the 2nd gens got thru ok I believe, but I def. had an advantage being somewhat narrower....
