Trail Description: Cleghorn Ridge. Easy/moderate: Road 2N47 is fairly smooth most of the way except for a steeper, rougher section going over Cleghorn Mountain. The tougher alternate route varies to fun and moderate. There are bypasses around all the tough sections which make this trail easy.

Radio: CB Channel 4, HAMS: 146.55 (Simplex 2)

Special Equipment Required: Swaybar disconnects, high ground clearance with limited slip or lockers, 31 inch tires are always a plus. But there is an easy bypass that can be navigated in two wheel drive with stock vehicles. Tire damage is always a possibility. A good spare is required.
