93b was always a challenge. Depending on level of moisture. Had no idea they graded it. It was really bad the last time GATR rode there. But that was probably 4 years ago.

93b is fine as long as you like very steep hills
 I'd say 33s minimum & locker front & rear.   

You must not have been these in a loooong time.
It will be be 2 years ago this June or so.
How ' bout you?

i was up about a the end of last summer and it is one of the only trails with any challenge, not "the" only one. It is almost all super steep hills, but 93b has been graded and changed all the way to the top. We were with a small group, mostly over 37s, me and one more were the only ones that made it past the first few little rock gardens, after spending over an hr trying the rest turned around and headed to find easier stuff. They have made it a series of rock gardens increasing in size and difficulty, then it turns straight up the mountain and gets pretty knarly. Say what you will, but dont knock it till you try it, its worth a day trip just for the one trail.
I may have to go see what's changes since they screwed (graded) it up.
It was nothing more than dirt roads the last time we went. 93b had 2 or 3 small rock slabs/stair steps.
The only other part of the place worth trying was at the top & to the right or 93b. It was nasty looking. We didn't try it cause we were solo.

So 33s, 3.5 lift, and a stock JK driveline would have problems from what y’all say. Are there bypasses if I can’t do the rocks?

I was at Beasley a few weeks ago with a group of 7, stock to mild/medium builds.  We were only there a few hours so we didn't do the whole park nor did we do 93b.  The biggest problem we had was oncoming traffic.  The trails are narrow and not always a place to pull off.  With that said it was very dry.  Can't imagine some of the hills it were very wet.

Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

Should be good to go. Just watch the weather and closures. Hope to have the Jeep running by tomorrow.

there is only a handfull of places you will have problems, but there are no bypasses to any of it unless you go all the way around the mountain. Cmon up, im sure there will be plenty of GATR folks to help out if necessary.
