Thoroughly enjoyed this trail for the first time ever last week, in my LR3. Ground clearance was never an issue, but still need to practice caution and common sense. Bring the right gear and plenty of water.

Took this trail for the first time last week. Had an absolute blast. Wanted to run my '17 JK through the paces and this trail proved my JK is capable. Looking forward to going again.

We have done this a few times. We normally start in saddlebroke and drive to oracle and back. We did it on our dual sport bikes but it is much easier on a dirt bike. If you want a trail that is a lot harder go try Sutherland trail. It makes Charleau Gap feel like a walk in the park

Man this trail is no joke when do it with a bike, starts off good on both sides but u's extremely difficult When go thru the rock wash you will know when you get their. Lots if springs some out of the way but you definitely have to go thru some but it was a great time but I don't think a bike is a good idea...
