Great trail. A few rocky spots, but overall pretty easy.

Accidentally drove through here from Geology Tour Road in the nighttime last November. I drove my stock Frontier with regular highway tires and managed to complete it to Dillon Road. We got stuck at one point because my tires got pinched on a boulder and my other tires couldn't get any traction. We had to gather rocks, level the truck, and create a platform to drive off of- took about 2hrs. Other than that we finished the road without any other problems.

We drove through not knowing how rough it is. Regardless the drive was exciting and a little intimidating if you don't know what you're doing. Some corners are hard to navigate through. I'd highly recommend if you have the right vehicle for it.

I drove my Jeep from Joshua Tree to Indio, using Geology Tour Road and Berdoo Canyon Trail. The trails were fairly easy. There are only a few areas where you have to be careful due to rocks and ground clearance.
