Edmonton here! Would love to meet up and go hit a trail!

Showing off my 2021 JLU Shara Diesel.

So far on 35x12.5xR17 Ko2 mounted to AEV Pintlers. AEV 2" Lift is on the way.





The 3.0 was a good choice. wasnt even bothered when we got this trailer loaded up near the max tow.

Was out north of Legal at some crown land, my buddy in his 2020 JLU Sport got stuck in some gnarly muskeg.

I've never been in winter, but have seen posts from people who have. The access into the river valley is pretty easy for the wranger. If you get down there just explore as far as you feel comfortable. I am not sure the falls have frozen yet, as that's the main attraction to drive to in the winter. No matter what though you'll enjoy the views. Just getting to the river valley has some pretty nice views on the ridge.
To clarify, that's the TransAlta road starting at point 2 on the map and driving towards 40. I think someone posted a link to the map earlier.

Good to know! Would you say winter has hit? Or is it more of a top layer like we have here. Either way hopefully going to hit a few trails! Youre more than welcome to come tag along if youd like!

We had a big dump last week in this area, but you're right, should mostly be melted now and forecast calls for some really nice weather this weekend. I can't make it this weekend, but thanks for the invite. I would love to do some trips with local groups in the future. Please post some pics of your adventures when you get back.

Spent the day yesterday up in Maclean creek.

First summit in a jeep

This trail was fairly easy and had some stunning views

Well it was easy until we took a different path down. This is halfway down and past the most difficult part. Hit 28 Degrees down and 16 Degree tilt. Rock rails did their job and the tow hitch got a bit banged up.

The path going down the mountain you see here is the trail down

Got dirty. Was well worth it 10/10
