Very good trail. Need careful tire placement in some spots, didn't have any body damage concerns. Took several alternate (harder) routes.

DId this as a warmup trail for the first time in MOAB. Took a couple of the "alternate routes" to keep it interesting. Not sure why this is rated as hard. I would give it an upper moderate rating at best.

Very cool Trail, we did this trail in 16 rubicon with 6 inch lift 35in Baja tires. I would suggest if there is your first time off-roading to start with something slightly easier to get a feel for your vehicle.

Super fun a little scary with a stock 4 runner 5th gen. Absolutely a bucketlist activity.

we ran this trail all the way through the water fall in a STOCK 2006 Nissan Xterra s. no special equipment used, only damage was bent the nerf bars and scrapped up the hitch. I would run this trail again but I would highly recommend more ground clearance then a stock SUV provides.

Great trail. We did it East to West which meant that we went downhill on the West side of the summit and the rocky road. Had our 4x4 Tacoma in 4Lo and 1st gear crawling down the rocky slopes - no problem. Very nice views and spots for photos.

The views are incredible here. I did west to east.

On my way up 2 people had popped tires going east to west so I suggest driving slow! The first few miles were steep and knuckle clenching on the shelf. Basically climbing over large rocks. I have a 4x4 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo and we bottomed a few times and had to almost gun it to get out in a spot. I’ll post pics once back.

Once you pass the top you’re out of the rock scrambling, and as another user mentioned is minivan worthy.

Such an amazing drive over the San Juan mountains. I recommend going from Ophir to the Million Dollar Highway because climbing the rocks is much easier than braking down the whole pass.

Awesome trail with great views. There are a couple of spots that require good tire placement but otherwise enjoy the view

Did this after doing the fins and had a great time...

Best trail that I know of in the area! The trail itself is more challenging than others, which I appreciate, and the views are amazing!

Pretty intense trail. Was doing great until we hit the steps, scraped the side of the truck a bit. All in all well worth it!

Made this trek in my 2012 Nissan Titan crew cab, pretty much stock with slightly oversized tires

One of the top trails in Colorado

Did this trail in my Jeep from the West side - starting off of 550. Talking to people who came up from Lake City and looking over the map, this route is much steeper but a lot of fun. A couple of off camber shelf stretches that were a little hair raising but not that many people till the top. Great drive, well worth it

Drive from Ouray to Telluride. Started out very easy and gradually got to moderate. Lower portion was along a stream. Climbed above tree line and trail continued as moderate. Summit was over 13,000 feet Trail off summit toward Telluride was a bit tricky, very narrow and didn’t want to meet up with anyone climbing. Once down from summit was a easier drive. Abandoned mine was very interesting and a lot to explore. Also portapotties were there. From ruins to Telluride there was a lot of afternoon traffics, again had to watch for places to meet other drivers. Switchbacks on the trail made it more challenging. Drive most of time in high range. High ground clearance was a must.

Went west to east. There's a bit of climbing early on then it gets extremely narrow, steep, and you're bouncing over relatively large rocks. I was carrying a lot of extra weight with camping gear in my 4runner so that climb was a slow, steady pace. After you get over the pass you're quickly on an easy minivan road.

Did it November 2016 in an '04 4runner. Completely stock except for the 2" lift and Icon suspension. 2nd trail I had ever done. Terrifying! So many chances to roll and destroy your rig and yourself. I did celebratory donuts when we made it out in one piece. I learned a lot that day.

I used to use this for mountain biking and now that I use a 4wd this mapping works just as good if not better than some of the paid apps.

Amazing trail. Combined with other trails and rode from 8 am to 6 pm. The ride to the summit was spectacular. A large part of the trail is above the tree line with incredible views. Trail was easy to drive was in high range about 1/3 of time and mostly used low to control decent and navigate rocks.

Hands down my favorite trail in the area. It is difficult, and you should be an experienced off road driver, but its not completely insane or anything. We did it in a (brand new) stock TRD Pro 4 runner, and I scraped the drivers nerf bar a couple times, but that was the only thing that touched.

The climb up is moderately difficult at most, the only thing i would consider an "obstacle" is the waterfall at the summit, which is a fun little climb, but you can bypass it, we made it up with no contact or wheel spin.

The summit is amazing as it opens up and there is plenty of room for parking, picnicking, etc. The views are absolutely stunning and might be my favorite point in Colorado. (See the photos from my drone in the photo section)

The descent starts out moderate, with a drop off on you left, but the trail is still decently wide (relative term), just pay attention and there won't be any issue.

The steps are a bit tricky to navigate, and you may pull a wheel off the ground depending on your line choice, but the risk of catastrophe is relatively low as long you're paying attention.

The road is very narrow past the steps and is basically a rock shelf at points, with a drop off on your left and a rock wall on the right. Its not terribly challenging, but it may get to the nerves of some, This is where the trail gets its fame as the descent into Telluride starts, the road is narrow, rocky, and shows you a 1000' drop at points, but again, its just your nerves that get to you, its really not super challenging. The switchbacks are tight, but have room for a 3+ point turn depending on how close to the edge you're comfortable getting.

As i said, we did it in a Stock TRD Pro 4 runner, but i never even locked the rear end, just used 4L over the majority of the pass, and mostly for engine braking purposes. Other vehicles seen that day that did the whole trail were an Unlimited Jeep JK (Duh), A Crew Cab Tundra, A GMC Suburban, and another Identical 4 runner to ours. Shorter is definitely better, but anything shorter than a full size crew cab pickup (F-250 etc) with a decent amount of ground clearance will make it, anything longer than a crew cab, short bed, half ton pickup would have hell, and even those will need a bit of lift and 33's or so. Longer vehicles will most likely drag bottom or rocker panels in a few spots, so use that info as you will! Enjoy!

Very scenic trail for off-roading purposes. You occasionally run into a hiker or mountain-biker, but for the most part, it’s all 4x4’s. The views are spectacular throughout the trail but the best views are when you come down the waterfall. To all those wielding a camera and shooting in daylight hours, jump (at your own risk) across the waterfall and get a shot of your vehicles coming down. The switchbacks are technical but not overwhelming. We were in a long bed company truck and successfully maneuvered the turns with little effort.
Happy trails!
