    I'd like to run it sometime, but this weekend (other than the Friday run I already have planned) is not an option for me.

    Good deal. I had not yet noticed you joined the Friday run. I think you'll enjoy argentine, though it isn't particularly challenging technically.

    Its been a few years since I ran it, but Slaughterhouse used to be pretty easy (like I ran all of it in 2wd by accident due to a locking hub issue)...most of it going in and down is pretty easy dirt road and 2-track, and there is one big hill with loose gravel and whoop-de-doos coming back up the backside. Then there is one small rock slab obstacle right after that....It is a good one for being close to the metro area and it only takes a couple hours to run it.

    I didnít get any pictures from Slaughterhouse. The trail was easy and well groomed. It looked like the forestry service has been through with a dozer recently. Any stock 4x4 should be able to do it without much trouble

    That is a true bummer. We run Slaughterhouse a lot for break in runs and the back side was just getting fun. If you go left at the fork you are going downhill through the flexy part and is much less challenging than going right. Haven't made it up this year but hopefully soon.

    I went right at the fork. Will go back and run it left soon. Barbour forks gave me more of a challenge

    Sadness. That was a fun little trail that was close to town.
    Sounds like now itís just another dirt road..
    a lot like what they done to Navadaville loop.
