Default Calico Mines

Hey guys. Trying to plan a trip for this weekend (if it doesnt rain). Anyone been to the Doran scenic drive over in Calico? I am not worried about making it in my Jeep but my friend will have a bone stock Trailhawk Renegade. I have read that you need some decent ground clearance and that is something he is lacking. Any input from someone who has done the trail would be great!

I have run that trail, but it was YEARS ago...I do not recommend a stock vehicle for that run, has some pretty gnarly spots as I recall...and if the bypass for Gatekeeper is closed, good luck, LOL

I was watching some videos of people running the trail. It does look bad haha. They say a stock Rubicon can make it but that is the minimum. Stock Rubicon vs stock Renegade = no comparison. Looks like I will be going somewhere else.

Ran Doran last weekend and it's rough- stock clearance will have issues. It was scenic
