Check the recording for an alternative trail. This route takes you from Little Box Canyon to Meccacopia. The trail is definitely moderate.

Easy trail with a few moderate patches that were best done with 4WD. We started at the Mecca end and then took Little Box Canyon out. Lots of variety in terrain. Took one side trip that was interesting. Nice day trip.
