We drove a Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk 4x4. We took off up Kentucky Camp then looped around through some awesome off roading trails! There were a lot of 4 wheelers & horse riders along the way. Once we came out onto Garden Canyon Road, it DOES NOT loop around. It dead ends. I would NOT recommend this as a hiking trail. Its basically a dirt road with traffic of off roading vehicles constantly running up & down it. But highly recomend off roading in a Jeep. Definitely take some of the off shoot paths for a lot more fun!

still had a great time in my 4runner driving up and down both trails. BUT Its not a loop. the road is closed off at the back. also doesnt seem like great hiking unless you enjoy walking on dirt roads with 4x4s driving passed you.

Nice off road trail with some small creeks and beautiful scenery. 2wheel drive probably okay, but not a car. We have a lifted Rubicon and it was easy for us. Perfect trail for a nice off road ride.
