View Full Version : Wheeler Lake Waterfall

Got this update via email today:

"Oh, as a side note someone blasted the rock on the right side of the
last obstacle of wheeler lake making it a simple drive up. No challenge
at all, any rig could make it all the way to the top now since
everything else has a bypass. Bummer."

I think someone may have mentioned this earlier, but damn, that really sucks!

We ran this trail for the first time a few weeks ago, and didn't even know it was the waterfall. We all just drove over it and kept going to the top. I was really looking forward to the challenge too! Real bummer...

blasted it as in kaboom? We ran it a while back (ran into stretch at the top i believe) we had mentioned the big rock on the righ was moved right into the middle of the waterfall approach creating a bypass to the right. I can't imagine what they "blasted" if thats indeed what they did.
