Not talking trash but Potts is rough. I don't think you would really want to take a stock (or close to it) anything through it. Body damage? You could probably expect it. Stuck in a few places? Expect it. Probably make for a long trail ride and put you and your truck through the paces. Potts is deff/ not a learner trail. I have seen some nice stuff get beat there. Like I said its a awesome trail, just pretty difficult to traverse.

Not trying to talk you out of exploring it for yourself but if I were you I would deff. ride w/ someone through it first and check it out. Then decide if you want to try it.

See ya on the trails!

Up near Harrisonburg, around my area. I'll take you on a trail ride if you serious want to come up.

I saw the pictures... I wanted to make it out but had some things going on that wouldn't allow me.

Was a little surprised when I saw the snow.
