Right off of hudsend bend by lake travis, but it is not very 2wd friendly. You could get around but your probably going to loose some rubber especially since you don't have mud terrains to help you out.

Here are some threads with pics so you can see what it is.

then with a friend of mine in his taco with the locker and street tires. lost lots of rubber.

the hills you cant make with full pressure you wont make with less pressure, you just need lots of throttle haha

show him the videos haha
i almost made a few hills but stalled out in 2wd, and some of em i was really bogged down on but you can have some fun out there, there's plently of places to flex it out

there are no "pits of death" haha out there, but it is just a bunch of connecting trails that all pretty much go in a circle. We or somebody will probably go out there at one point and you can come and check it out.

its pretty much a few short trails on a hill

there are no pits of death, there's one puddle that can get pretty damn deep, i wouldnt do it unless you were pretty tall, i backed out when i had a BL and 33s...

other than that, just look before you go down a ledge or you could be in for a hell of a ride


this is the hill i almost had in 2wd, and just to the left where those step looking ledges is where i took out my radiator so be careful haha
