Lovers trail located just east of the Kettles is a place where time forgot. Crawl over washouts and gaze among the fields and trees. Do not trespass and go down into the ravine or washouts. Has a mandatory lvl 4 roll of 16 degrees. 

Lovers Trail is a dirt road with washouts, trees and it's pretty rough. Please take caution to not cause damage, maybe we can turn this into a local crawling trail at some point! Of all the old roads, this one is very trail like.

First time on this trail and I entered in from the north. Nice views for this time of the year. STAY ON THE TRAIL. I noticed some gates open. This trail is definitely worth trying. Great to test out the suspension and 4 low and lockers. No need to air down but running with sway bar disconnected, I would recommend if equipped. Wash outs are very deep towards the south end. If going solo, bring recovery equipment or have a winch. Had a whoops moment and misjudged the washout and how deep the washout really was. Overall had a good experience and it’s not very long of a trail but I’ll come back!

I had a bit of time on my hands this afternoon, was out in the Jeep and thought to myself "Self, you should go checkout Lover's Lane since the wife is up north"  I, being myself, thought that was a spectacular idea and headed over there.  Based on a few things I had read, I was *not* prepared!
Bring recovery gear - I had to make do with a shovel tonight! - and a friend or two.  The ditches are pretty deep and can suck you right in if you're not careful.

A fun trail, hit 20* roll a few times. Narrow, ruts, and a ton of fun.

Pushed my JLUR through the brush, not so dangerous to paint when green, but might be something to think about come fall/winter. This also means it was very lush green scenery though. Short trail with some washout making it a little narrow. Large puddles and uneven terrain kept it interesting, but nothing too challenging.

Thanks for reviewing! It needs to be brushed, and it's a lot of fun!
