I ran this trail in my 06 open-diff Xterra 4x4. With good spotting on a few obstacles, I was able to complete this trail with no issues. I had no body damage, only a few scrapes on rock sliders. Overall, this trail is challenging, but fun and a great learning experience to build up your skills. A lift is highly recommended with some under armor. Lockers will help greatly, but not necessary if lines are chosen correctly. It's all about the lines.

This is a great beginners trail! Lots of fun and a few bonus lines for more advanced drivers.

I have lead stock 4x4s through this trail with little difficulty. There are a few sections where spotting is needed for inexperienced drivers and occasionally a quick tug with a strap. I run with Infectious Off-road and we are always willing to come out and lead people through a trail so hit us up if you are looking for a trail buddy.

The track this app shows be default is just the Lockwood loop that drops you back onto Mulhardt rd. If you want to run all of the Lockwood/Miller trail you will go over 2 mountains and it will drop you off on Gold Hill rd in the Hungry Valley OHV park. I uploaded my gps track to this post and will report it to the admins.

Did this trail with City Slicker 4x4, great folks. Trail was challenging but a lot of fun. Look forward to doing it again.

The trail offered a beginner like me an opportunity to stretch my JKUR legs and build my confidence, I used all my stock JKUR magic buttons except hill decent (I need to RTM) and built my confidence, mission achieved. I got through without any detectable damage. The trail had something for a beginner like me, easy parts and pucker moments, overall a great day.

Very steep switch-backs. Large rocks. Fairly technical. Skid plates, lockers a must. Don't go alone!!! 2010 FJ Cruiser 4x4 with rear lockers, A-Trac front diff, 3" lift with 33" tires worked fine.

I have driven this road in both directions in a stock Jeep 4-door Rubicon. Great views, isolated, and fairly technical in spots. 4WD Low and skid plates recommended, front sway-bar disconnect and lockers helpful.
