I taught my 12 year old son how to drive stick in our jeep on this very easy trail. The trail was a little boring for my highly modified jeep. No obstacles, but GREAT scenery. I was in 2 wheel drive for about 90% of the trail. Great trail for beginners, or sightseers.

Such a fun trial. Beautiful views. Once you hit the top of the mountain. Get out and start climbing on the mountain. View from all over Mesa.

Good for challenging off-roading.

Great off-road trail for ATV's. Went on a weekday and traffic was minimal. Grab your permit for the lock combination at the Mesa Ranger's Station before you go.

Wouldn't want to do this on a really hot day. Would be dusty as most of the "trail" is on Forest Rd 10 or in a wash. Great scenery except for views destroyed by power lines!

We hiked this trail, even though it's probably more suitable for biking and ATVs, but the views were great and the trail was comfortable to hike.

Hiked the entire trail on a 80 degree New Years Day, a few years back. Although it's not normally used for hiking from what we observed, it has some great views to take in. Worth another hike!

Very clean. Make sure to get a free permit from the forest service. Easy as far as 4 wheeling goes but a fun drive.

Really fun. Go earlier on the day and you're practically on your own in the wild.

Bull dog was fun, a great place to go for the day. Did some repelling in the canyon. We didn't need a 4x4 to get where we needed to go but recommended for the rest of the trail. pass is free, you will need one to get in.
