Trail is very steep and the rocks are pretty tall. I probably shouldn't have taken my truck down this trail but I did. Luckily I was able to turn around somewhere about 2 miles down the trail. Going back up was easier, but you need a lifted truck with at least 33 inch tires if you don't want to damage anything. This trail is very hard on brakes if you don't have low gearing or crawl control which I have neither. Would be a nice place to go hiking though.

Nice 4x4 road with tight turns.

One day got down the trail and someone tried to take a Toyota Corolla automobile on the trail. It didn’t make it :)

Really beautiful hike, great Mountain View’s. We hiked on a Saturday (st Patrick’s Day) was not a sole on a hike. Coming back is mostly uphill. Great hike for you and your dogs!

It's a beautiful hike in spring. It's rated moderate for a reason.
