This was so boring. It was just a road- a dirt and dust filled road. It was a casual stroll- no idea why it was ranked hard. Came to do the incline for the first 3.5 miles and went off trail to try and get something fun. Went up black Rock trail and scrambled to the top to make it somewhat challenging and fun.

This gets rougher as you go. When you are in the wash, it easy to lose the road and I needed 4wd to over a few large rocks in washouts. Glad I had a two door JK in one spot to climb out of the wash and back to the "road". Jeep or other OHVs only, not any SUV or regular truck will fit or have the needed clearance. I won't call this easy.

Great views and easy trail. Make sure you have high clearance by FWD not needed during normal conditions. It's a bit of a trek so allow for 3 hours with sight seeing.
