My lil secret spot(no longer). Little dirt access road I like to go to when I need a little escape or MUD!!! Has water crossing, mud, and flexy crawls. Nice little getaway that is only 20 mins away from me. Your welcome. Photo related.

*Also there is another historic road off of that road that has a sweet ass single bridge crossing. Please be respectful to the people living near bridge crossing, It feels like a private road but it is not.*

How long would you say this dirt trail is? Both time and distance wise?

From the start of the road (also called Latrobe Rd.) to the "main" Latrobe Road. via S. Shingle Road is 7.9 miles. For our route we did that and circled around to Michigan Bar Road and then back to the the starting point.
Another route to check out that is close is Vaira Ranch Road to Tonzi Road.

Went for a drive at lunch. All was good until I found a mud hole deeper than I expected and spun muddy water all through the interior :CWL:.

Thank you for the heads up on this fun little road—it was perfect for a quick outing to have some fun in my Jeep.

We saw @Focker and his wife out there and it was fun to meet them!

A few pics:

Hopefully you didn't find the same mud puddle as I did with those tube doors on. I just finished cleaning out the interior last night and still couldn't get all the mud spots off the seat :LOL:

I didn't get mud inside because I resisted the urge to go bombing through the puddles. I can be an absolute child when it comes to puddles and love to make a big splash :CWL:.

We got TONS of dust, tho! I think I'm going to have to do some more cleaning on the inside.

yes, dust everywhere but part of the deal. I use a large wet towel and wipe everything down (top to bottom) as a first pass, then go back with a microfiber and Meguiar's Quick Interior Detail spray and it works pretty well. Same process on summer pine pollen when in the mountains, that yellow stuff gets everywhere.

use a steam cleaner. They work wonders on stains and hard to reach places like door jambs.

@RagTopDeluxe did the Ranger stop and talk to you while you were out on Saturday? He stopped us and made sure all of our bikes were street legal with mirrors and current registration? He was very nice but certainly checking.

He didn’t stop us, but we waved when we went by to acknowledge him. I still have my temp registration in the front window so maybe he saw that? Or maybe the bikes were something he was targeting? At first I thought he was going to tell us the road was closed.

I’m glad we went out—it was a fun afternoon that we needed. I’m finding more dirt on my Jeep :CWL:.

It was a fun little road in a very pretty area. The little obstacles on the side of the road were fun for a newbie like me.
