That is a great place over 300 acres of open access private owned 4x4 park just south of town. Free camping and a lot of hard core trails.
You add to the the lack of common sense when I was there and it was open, the dunes at the base were covered with folks partying and all they would do is run up and down that thing all day and set at the bottom waiting for someone to go off. Everyone has seen the video of the Blazer going off the side but a friend was out there the day that happened and he said he watched it go up and down at least 3 times just in the short period of time he was there observing. He had left before she lost brakes and went over the side.
No I have not but I am glad you mentioned it. Last time I was in Moab was 2004.That is about the time they were opening that place up I think and we never made it over there and I had forgotten about it. Been wanting to do a trip to Montrose Co but hate to get that close to Moab and not go on in but because I no longer license and insure my Jeep couldn't figure out where to go other than Pritchett canyon. So many of the trails you come out in a different spot than you go in and have to drive on the hi-way or back track half a day.
I need to check that place out. Thanks!!!!!

I didn't look to close I guess. I thought your hi lift was a bracing kit.

Bfe is sweet. The heldorado trail is on it. It is really hard core. Some day ill get a rig that can run it. Check out areabfe.com they do a of of stuff out there. They had a ultra 4 type of race last Easter. I got to watch Shannon Campbell's daughter flip her rig that day.

Oh really. We went in thru Lower Helldorado and I started into Upper Helldorado one time but after the group I was with watched me go thru that nasty spot at the beginning, they decided they wanted no part of it so I came back out. Last I heard Lower is closed and I am not sure how to get into upper without going thru lower. Guess I need to get back out there and figure it out. That is some awesome country in there..........

Had a nice family outing when I was stateside last. Most of the in-laws were on ATVs. I followed in my jeep with my mother-in-law riding shotgun. Fun day. Lots of screams and mud. Coffeeville, Alabama

Looks like it was a great time. I am a confidant mud avoider when topless. Just too much of a pia to clean out. Even with no carpet.

If it hadn't been for the 8 inch concrete curb it would have been a fun ride and no damage sustained.
