Got any details on the run? It's too far for me, but I know there's a lot of folks down that way.

Here is a link to the spot we will be camping. Free but no improvements but a outhouse. https://goo.gl/maps/QLEZW
It is the second left on Liberty Road.
If you get to Pine Gultch NF-9726, Willams creek camp area you missed the left by 200'!
Snow runs up high on NF-9718 and 12 to NF-35 and Lion Rock
Lots of narly runs on not so narly trails available as well. (snow and wet makes for big challenge)
Feel free to call me if you need more info. 360-296-4963
Let me know if you are going to come please as well.

Well a bit late report but we had snow! Ok, very little but plenty of Ice to cause a long day of winching and turning around and going back the way we came. Off camber with trees and a nice edge to keep you on the trail up hill OK just lots of winching up the ice sheet. Down hill, solid ice, off camber, no rut's, no trees leads to difficult turn around. Only a few photos. Great time overall. Lots more insulation needed for the RV. First time camping with it in the freeze.

I can't believe you actually had snow. Doesn't look like big ford country though! Thanks for the pics. :cool:

No, not Ford trails. However Liberty is the first place I ever tried to wheel with the Ford. Pucker of 10+, made it all the way thankfully but that was the end of that. I took the buggy for the first time in the cold. Worked good. A tid bit nippy however!

Conditions at Blewet Pass are perfect. About 12" at the top. Lion Rock will be an awesome run. Lower elevation trails will be dry and frozen with low temps. Should be a perfect long weekend. We will be camping on the lower camping area on the south side of the road into Liberty. All welcome.
