    We did a modified John Bull Trail because a group of scouts kept breaking ahead of us so we turned around. We probably did 10-12 miles today.

    The parts of the trail i saw, the gate-something which i heard someone call it, didn't seem too tough. With a good spotter i would have been fine. I think sliders, 2" lift and 3wd is a minimum for this trail.

    Dude you should go. Holcomb Valley is prerunning friendly. Its my kind of trails too. The trails dont beat you up. Lots of side paths. You hop on the 2n09 from the 18 and it takes you there.

    would Holcomb valley be suitable for a stock height and tires long bed?
