Ophir was actually our plan B because Black Bear wasnt actually open when we were planning the trip. We got lucky and it opened about a week before we got there. Trust me, you would much rather do BB.



    Alpine Loop is 50+ miles of semi-maintained bumpy dirt road that lots of other trails intersect with. You're likely to encounter a lot of tourists and rental Jeeps here because it is accessible to the novice. The summit of Engineer Pass is part of the loop and I think California (or maybe Cinnamon) is as well. You will likely travel small sections of it, but I wouldnt set out to complete the whole thing.

    Poughkeepsie is definitely something I would recommend even though we didnt get to run it. (Long story short, Forest Service closed it for the year because some jack asses cut the lock and trespassed the gate). It's the only trail where you'l find any semblance of obstacles or difficulty. Plus it exits at Lake Como and you can return to town via Corkscrew Gulch which I REALLY regret not running while we were there last month.

    The switchbacks directly above the white Jeep - that's Corkscrew Gulch.

    This view is much better than even that pic shows, of course. A must do! A little side hitch off of Engineer Pass trail.

    couldn't pass up that deal on a whole house! Garage too.
    Thats ok, you got more people and two Jeeps! We all will just need to find a rendezvous point for the mornings, but we can party at your place in the evening! Lol!

    Now you have a tow rig, so that portion of the run will be easier! Howd it do on the Windrock run?

    I was actually thinking about that. Some of us could rent a larger place and split costs

About us
wayoflife is a moniker that Ive been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
