yea we have had a few gatherings there...if you like your paint unscratched i would recommend turning around before the top...it gets really brushy....

you guys are wusses, its easy for 2wd, and most "scratches" come off when you wipe it off.

Its closed now because of all the fires though

Is it still? I know they have reopened all of the National Forest land, but haven't heard about state. Hopefully we get some rain soon so they can reopen it.
