Depends what this means as I don't have kids.  If they're fine Tagging alone in the jeep for the trails then they'll have a blast!  But if they get stir crazy and need out of the jeep every 30 minutes they might not enjoy themselves.  There's no plans to stop for excessive time, but we will stop at the Top of the World and at Quirk Ridge for photos and at probably for lunch at either quirk or somewhere.

Also hoping to be off the trail around 4.

Ok cool.  Just wasn't sure if people didn't want kids hanging around.  They love hitting the trails.  See you on Sunday!

Family friendly ride?  I have a couple of kiddos that would like to come along.

Quirk is not muddy at all. Maybe a little on the first part of the trail if it’s wet. It’s a climb up to the top of a big hill. The top section is very technical. Tight fit between rocks and trees. Some drop offs along the way. Great views though.

Thanks hps4evr, I am definitely in if it's not muddy.

My tj only have front locker, 31'' and 2'' lift, no swaybar though. I watched videos on youtube people drive down from top of the world, pretty scary. Hope I my jeep can do it. See you guys next Sunday.

I am in. Is Quirk very muddy? I don't want to spend the whole day washing my jeep, it is my daily drive.

Great video, I especially like the footage of the black rubi with the light bar on it  ;D

I can see the attraction :)

for Moabicon,
video is compilation "best of" 8 different trails rated 4 to 5 done that week, elephant hill in 2nd half is personal favorite, min jeep requirements for what's in footage is 33's + rear locker,  when I return plan is do some 5's and 6's which is upper limit for my yj's capabilities,  moab has something to challenge just about any build - their red rock 4x club has 40+ trails with ratings listed on their website - if not fussy about crowds trails are open all year too

We've made it with a stock JKU Rubicon, they definitely aren't friendly but they're do-able.

If there's a bunch of stock JKUs we'll adjust the trail as needed :)

Hmm, some of those corners near the top of Quirk are not stock “unltd” friendly.  ???
