I've yet to run this trail as well, so I can't provide much input but I will say a good driver can make a huge difference for sure!That why I asked and used Golden Spike, in my mind, as a reference. They told me that trail needed 35's also and I had no issues on the trail, so that was only a reference for me. But, you guys know the trail and it's all good! I'll keep my eye on the forum and look for a run perhaps better suited.
I do know that random trail rides are a lot more active in the spring and fall here because of cooler temps.
Welcome, by the way!
