Thanks austin

When was the last time you were on it? The last time I did it, it rated probably a 4 out of 5. With the recent rains, it more than likely has gotten worse.

I saw some pictures from a rock crawling group that went up the weekend before last and it was not an easy trail. I wouldn't do that one right now without some one who has run it before. Damage would be a sure thing. :(

theres a couple good ones at Lovell(i think thats how you spell it) canyon. its a road that goes off to the right just after the hump to pahrump. ive been down a trail with my truck and a passenger and this road went from a smooth narrow road to a wash riddled with boulders. i always stop there because without another truck with me i dont want risk getting stuck. id love to get through it because its supposed to dump out onto the red rock highway. ill try any trail any difficulty any time.

Friday night sounds good to me. Its about 45 min there and the trail is like 2 hours or so.
Ya I'm the lifted Ford. I don't know if the rain made the trail worse or not

Just so you know, there is ONLY one trail that goes from Lovell Canyon into Red Rock Canyon. Rocky Gap Rd. aka Potato Ridge aka Potato Rd. Take a look at some of the pictures on the VV4W site. Keep in mind they were taken last year. There has been a lot of rain since then so the trail has gotten worse.

I really don't think you want to do it for the first time in the dark.
