This is an OHV route and is also known as the "Smiley Rock" route. The route is rocky with some peaceful segments where you may stop to enjoy the scenery. High clearance vehicles recommended.

I'd Rated just above moderate. Some optional rough routes but a stock jeep with A/Ts can make it with minor scratches/dents. Recommend a lift and rock tires. Route is rock garden after rock garden once you enter the Canyon. Enjoyable peace and plenty of spots to stop along the way and set up for a snack. Ensure your shocks are up for the bumpy ride my teraflex shocks finally gave out and started leaking and squeaking.

Rated a 2 but that was 7 years ago. I would rate it a 4 now. The dirt washed out exposing the rocks. Great views but--definitely no longer a 2.
