    Hey All,

    I have never been to LDRS, and I was wondering if I should rent a truck or just drive my four door sedan?

    At the launch site, is it just dirt roads? If so, can you drive on them with normal cars or are there ravines that would require a truck or SUV?

    We visited Tripoli Central California for the first time last year. Maddox dairy is where they launch, and to get to the launch site is a dirt road that almost any car could drive on.
    If you are going, be sure to read up on their webpage:

    Your car will be fine. We’ve driven all over that area in a minivan.

    Awesome! The rental would have made the trip more expensive.
