We had a good time cleaning up the trails to help keep them open.
Just a couple shots thanks to AdamK for getting out and taking a few quick ones.

One of these days I will make it out there. Have very little experience driving in that type of terrain and elevation change, I always mountain biked it.

Well let's plan a trip. I love driving out on Cape Lookout.

Steve, come on inland man. These trails were made for people with mostly stock vehicles so I'm sure with your beach experience, you can tackle just about everything.

Sounds like I could safely bring my 5 year old boy then. This is my main concern. He rides in a childs car seat with head bolsters and 5-point harness. Sometimes I move him up front because there is no air bag.

There are plenty of young ones that ride along out here. And if at any point you feel uncomfortable, you can just turn around. It's pretty hard to flop at URE. Although it is possible, you have to almost try to make it happen.

This is fine for URE.
As mentioned it's only as hard as you make it.

There's plenty of places to turn around.
