I was hoping Jacoby would be open as its a fun trail, but like someone else said, it's now gated off at the top by the Transfer Station and Doble Mine. Sucks, that was one of my favorite trails too...

This trail has been closed after the fire in June 2017. It will be closed to all activity for up to 10 years. Closed from Doble Mine (3N16) to Hwy 18.

Trail is rated moderate but it definitely gets a little tricky and tippy in spots. Just enough to make it challenging and fun but not overwhelming for a capable rig. We did it in a stock 4dr Jeep. We saw a few large/long pickup trucks having some trouble with the tippy spots. As long as you have good ground clearance, you'll be fine. Just take it slow and easy.

It winds along a creek in Jacoby Canyon. It's very peaceful and pretty. We started at the Doble Mine site off 3N16 and popped out on the 18.
