Cleghorn and 2n17x
i've only done 1/2 of cleghorn. last time there the snow was too deep and stopped us from completing our task at hand! :)
i've never done 2n17x or even know where it is.........but it was suggested to me as a 2nd trail to do that same day.

HERES A VIDEO OF THE TRAIL (WITH SOME OF ITS MORE DIFFICULT ROUND-BOUTS) :)

9ish meet time at trail head off of 15...hit trail by 9:30

IF YOU WANT TO CAMP?
I reserved a camping spot at SILVERWOOD LAKE. let me know if you are camping for sure. 8 people max, 3 vehicles (although i'm sure theres outside parking that can accomodate our vehicles)

i'd go but that's about the same time as the #2 kitty trip.
If you had signed up for the 2-4pm slot for the kitty trip, you'll be able to do this.

WHATS NICE abuot cleghorn is that you can always take the "round-'bout' way instead of the more difficult route if youd' like. the easy/more difficult sort of keeps criss crossing each other.
i've never done 2n17x so i cant answer that but cleghorn is a definate yes for stock.

i am sure 2n17x is very doable but you should always be ready for some small scrapes or scratches just in case. hopefully others will chime in that have done this trail and can answer better than i.

I've done the Cleghorn Advanced run in just a Stock FJ and did fine so there should be no worries. as long as in certain parts you have an experienced spotter to help you out.

you should be fine. sometimes the lift is a disadvantage on narrow sloped areas because of a higher center of gravity. you might scrape a little here and there underneath, and probably some brush marks on the body.

anyone know of any good camping spots in this area?
Silverwood Lake is a great camping area-if there are spots available.

Where are these trails located?
off the 15 freeway..about 1.5-2 hrs north of san diego is the trail head for cleghorn. if you google it it'll come up. it winds towards lake arrowhead.
i know its near the Bass Pro Shops.....i stopped there after i did cleghorn the last time. :)

pm me if you need more info or directions. its all very easy to find. hope you can make it.

i will probly head back home sunday and not do much wheeling but if anyone else is interested in meeting up with FJEEEZE on sunday let him know. :)

I might be able to make this run if i dont have to work. I highly doubt the camping tho.
i'll put you down as a maybe with no camping. keep me posted. :)
